Simply astonishing!
25 January 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

There aren't possible to describe all the beautiful footage showed in this documentary. It's easily the best i have ever seen, on par or even better than BBCs "planet earth" which was unique because of its big budget and long production time (16M £, 5years). Its probable that production paid off not only financially but also in terms of skill, and it certainly comes to show here in BBCs next effort to show us the mysteries and beauty of our planets frozen worlds. More than anything else this production is a profound statement on how precious and unique our planet is and how immensely important it is that human activity don't destroy it. Richard Attenbourough is, as we all know by now, the perfect narrator. His deep interest and knowledge in natural history is apparent, adding a pleasant edge to a marvelous achievement that is Frozen Planet.
