From the frozen tundra in the north to the dry forests of the equator, Sir David Attenborough narrates a compelling view of the planet. "Planet Earth" was the first natural history documentary to be filmed in high definition, and now a decade later improved technology has made it possible to capture further details, from elusive animal behaviors to previously inaccessible remote landscapes. In addition to exploring the wilderness, the series examines urban dwellings, focusing on animals that have adapted to city life.
Whenever documentary filmmakers at Discovery Channel and the BBC unite for a project, stellar television seems to follow. "Planet Earth: Africa" stems from this collaboration, as did the breakthrough natural history series "Life" in 2009. David Attenborough narrated that one, and he's back to take viewers on a journey through the vast and diverse continent of Africa. Four years in the making, during which more than 2,000 hours of video were shot, the program consists of six hour-long episodes that feature an array of never-before-filmed species, animal behaviors and previously unknown places. Cameras uncover the extreme dangers of the Kalahari, the dense forests and snow-capped peaks of the Savannah, the dynamic Congo rainforest, the ever-changing climate of the Cape and the massive and parched Sahara.
"Dynasties" is a documentary by Sir David Attenborough as he goes on a journey behind some of the most celebrated and endangered animals on the planet. Follow the stories of penguins, chimpanzees, lions, painted wolves, and tigers. Each of these animals is locked in a heroic struggle against the forces of nature and their rivals -- they face harsh environmental conditions, dangerous predators, and even the greatest threat: humans. They actively seek to fight for their survival and the survival of their families -- their dynasties.
Cameras offer incredible views of Galapagos, from erupting volcanoes to stunning vistas and unique wildlife. Viewers can follow Darwin's path as he explored the various islands, observing how nature evolves and adapts to ensure survival. And one episode deals with the most recent threat to these islands -- man.
This six-part nature documentary series reveals one of the world's most enigmatic countries -- one filled with natural complexity, picturesque landscapes and colorful people -- all spectacularly captured, from the Himalayas to the tropical islands, using high-definition cameras. The series was filmed for 16 months and involved a half-million miles of travel, with footage being shot in 26 of China's 30 provinces. Topics covered in the series include the climate and terrain of South China, which is ideal for rice cultivation, and the Tibetan Plateau.
