Thumbs up Planet Earth (BBC Version).. Kudos

If you are into documentaries and animals, this title is excellent. I watch it with my son and it is very enjoyable.

It is true though that some of the night/dark scenes have some noise but otherwise, it is almost demo quality.

With all the discounts going around, you should be able to get it for cheap plus it's a WB title. Who says we only go for BOGO deals.

Saw it in walmart for $65 a few weeks back, didn't check if it was the bbc version as I'm waiting 'till they release it with a disc that has the same extra content as the dvd version ... if that ever happens.

The BBC version is longer and has David Attenborough during the narrating it vs Sigourney Weaver. I think the DVD version only has one thing more which is the FUTURE EARTH episode. Don't think they will release it just for that. For $65, it is a good deal... I got it from Amazon.com for $66.95.

I've got the bbc dvd version in a box back in the u.k. (waiting on shipping it over here to the u.s. ... god only knows when ...), & the future earth thing's 3 near-hour episodes (iirc), I just thought it was a bit ... cheap of 'em not to include it on the HD release.

There's about to be a new version for the Cinema released over in the UK soon. It's got 30% new footage apparently, also maybe some of the Future Earth stuff will be in the movie version. It's just called "Earth".

There are about 5 more parts on the DVD then on both HDDVD and Bluray BBC versions. I downloaded the 720p version off the net and made them into HDVDs on a regular DL DVDs. 2 parts are Diaries, and 3 parts are the Future.

Looks like Discovery store is already taking preorders for the Sunrise Earth HDDVD Vol1 series.
