Planet Earth






If the truth be known I don't watch a lot of television these days as it is mostly hundreds of channels packed with bugger all to watch. I do watch the occasional film or TV comedy series on DVD but the one thing I do watch on TV religiously is the excellent Planet Earth by the BBC now into it's second series.
There has never been a show like this before on TV as it has the most amazing footage of wildlife and filming techniques never seen before and the show continues to surpass itself in excellence every week. Last nights episode, shallow seas, was TV gold.

If you are in the UK you have no excuse for not watching it but for the rest of you point your bittorrent client this way.

Look-in Picture Strip Archive. If you were a child of the seventies or eighties growing up in the UK and watching such exciting ITV television series like Timeslip, The Tomorrow People, The Six Million Dollar Man, Charlie's Angels, Space:1999, The A-Team and Robin of Sherwood, to name but a few, you may have also been a regular reader of the children's magazine Look-in. If you were, this is the website for you!

The Planet Earth series looks to be great, thanks.
I've been enjoying the "How It's Made" series over here.

HI,
I haven't seen the latest episode of Planet Earth yet, but my wife and I watched the Arctic/Antarctic episode at the weekend and it's just such a rollercoaster of emotions, we both cried, laughed, got angry, the works - and by the end we were both exhausted but so grateful they made this awesome series. If anyone out there hasn't seen it and has the chance to - go for it, I promise you won't regret it.

Peace..

Hyper: I noticed some of the "how it's made" links you had on Milk and Cookies. It looks great stuff. I'll have to check that out.

Hearwax: It's a sign of great Tv when it stirs you. It was similar for me too.
You are in for a real treat when you catch up with the latest one.
