Wow...it's about time. This was the first BBC Life series that really took my breathe away and then came Planet Earth and Life. The Life of Mammals....The Life of Birds by Attenborough and the BBC team are also amazing series. This will be an immediate buy for me.

I thought this one was shot on digital SD cameras? It may just be an upscale...

Regardless, it's an incredible series.

Actually a quick read and people are claiming it was 16mm, and after the recent new 16mm transfers done for Life On Earth and Trials Of Life, Blue Planet may have gotten a new transfer also. Fingers crossed.

Weirdly now UK release day has been announced, we also haven't gotten House Of Cards on BD either. Not sure what the BBC are playing at.

It is an upscale. Says it on the back cover in extremely small print as well that it has been "upscaled from standard definition elements." Some of it looks very good, other shots from SD digital cameras have jaggies on them.

This was out a few years ago. I bought a copy of it, and it was the worst Blu-ray I ever watched. It was so bad, I returned it to Amazon. Here's a link to it.

I am really looking forward to a decent copy of this. Please review it. I don't want to get burned twice.
