A testimony from the narrator of the series David Attenborough: "This new series is more a celebration of our planet, not a lament about the state of it. It shows what is still there. In some areas, there is no doubt we are doing damage to our world but, at the same time there is a vast amount of unchratered and untouched wilderness. This landmark series takes viewers to the world's highest peaks, deepest caves and most remote deserts. The footage is simply without parallel".
At Branes & Noble it is priced at $75 but amazon.com has it priced at $85 along with another series called The Blue Planet-Seas of Life.That's a pretty neat deal. Might make a good early christmas gift for self :).
