“From the award-winning BBC Natural History Unit, makers of Planet Earth and The Blue Planet: Seas of Life, this is the original UK broadcast version of Life, with narration by renowned naturalist David Attenborough and music by Oscar® and Emmy® winning composer George Fenton In Planet Earth, we brought you the world as you’ve never seen it before. Now, get closer with Life. Four years in the making, filmed over 3000 days, across every continent and in every habitat, with breathtaking new high definition filming techniques developed since Planet Earth, Life presents 130 incredible stories from the frontiers of the natural world, 54 of which have never been filmed before. Packed with excitement, revelation and entertainment, this remarkable 10-part blockbuster captures unprecedented, astonishingly beautiful sequences and demonstrates the spectacular and extraordinary tactics animals and plants have developed to survive and thrive.”
I cant wait for this release, slated for June 1st on a Blu-Ray 4 disc set. David Attenborough is the narrator for the UK release, and in a mind boggling decision from the BBC, Oprah for the American release. Now, I have no issue with Oprah, but Attenborough is the best of the best – I for one will be willing to pay the extra cash to get a hold of the the UK release.
