Planet Earth Videos






A handful of amazing videos from the BBC's Planet Earth series which I mentioned earlier this week. If you have not seen the show before prepare to be amazed although YouTube videos do the show no justice as it is best watched on your TV in a much higher quality.

Thanks! This is one of my all time favourite TV shows. I watch it in complete awe... And usually with my jaw dropped down to around my ankles. :)

Great to see some clips! Breath-taking stuff.

In my opinion it's far and away the best TV show ever made. In fact the next episode is due to start here in a couple of hours and I'm like a little kid waiting for christmas! :)

I did'nt know you got to see this in Canada. Is the second series on over there yet?

mike said...

It aired on the CBC on Sundays.

To my knowledge, the second series hasn't made it's way here yet... Hopefully soon. TV doesn't get better than this.

The second series has almost finished here now.
I wondered if they could better the first series but they did in fine style. It just seems to get better with every episode. It's just a shame that there is only 1 episode left now but I'll always have the DVD's to watch.

Hard to imagine it could be even better than the first season... I can't wait for it to get over here!

By the way: That was a wondeful story about your son. What a great kid!

All these clips are from the second series apart from the first one that I added this morning. You are in for a real treat.

Sounds very similar to my night too. :)

mike said...

I take it back then, I thought these clips were from Season 1. I saw all these on TV a few months ago.

ILuvNUFC said...

Series 2 still has'nt finished here yet so I guess they must be from the 1st series then unless you get to see them before us.
I'm a bit confused as we have been watching season 1 on DVD between the 2nd series.

mike said...

I aim to confuse! :) What I can say for certainty is that I'd seen the polar bear, wolf hunt and penguins on TV a few months ago. Maybe they were from 1st season... ?

You have done a good job then. :)
Then again it could well be all the prescription painkillers that I'm taking!
