Storyline

This is a documentary series looking at the most dramatic wildlife spectacles on our planet.

We also see the impact of the migration of wildebeest on a pride of lions, the annual winter sardine run along the coast of Africa, and the great feast in the ocean when the plankton blooms.

Excellent if only it were more than 6 episodes.
30 May 2009 | by (S. Lake Tahoe, CA) – See all my reviews

This is great and quite varied in what it covers. Granted I've only seen 4 of the 6 so far, but from what I've seen so far it is superb. Interested in this type of nature documentaries then you are in luck. Fantastic in all respects. I can't recommend this more. Very interesting & fun to watch. Bears & salmon are one episode. Polar Bears and the cool looking Narwhal's whales are great too. Well that's it watch it to be entertained and to learn some stuff too. Oh yeah they do some Cool episode w/Lions too. Also they follow a little bit of cheetah's. Got to have 10 sentences and I'm looking forward to the Okovongo Delta episode.
