David Attenborough examines the ecology and biodiversity of each of Earth's major biomes, and warns of the dangers of humanity's current industrial life. Camera work is extraordinary, and all continents are visited at least once. Written by
Jason A. Cormier
Additional item included on the UK DVD is "The Making of the Living Planet". Presented by Miles Kington it shows the trials and tribulations of the film crew in capturing animal behavior together with a humorous interview with David Attenborough (at around 39 mins) See more »
This is without doubt one of the finest documentaries ever filmed. Through its 12 episodes, a person couldn't possibly think of natural history in the same way again. Sir David Attenborough explains complex issues such as geology and biology so that everyone can easily understand. In fact, this series is easily on the same plane as "Cosmos" by Carl Sagan. The cinematography is beyond belief. Highly, highly recommended.
