Planet Earth: The Complete Series

British Broadcasting Corporation (2007)

DVD

ABSTRACT

You'll be filled with awe and amazement every time you watch this stunning BBC series about our planet's best-loved, wildest and most elusive creatures, captured on breathtaking, high-definition film in the Earth's most extreme habitats. Forty cameramen and hundreds of producers, scientists and guides spent four years and $25 million to bring you this God's-eye-view of rare action and intimate moments in impossible locations. Zoom in on the elusive snow leopard hunting a mountain goat on a near-vertical cliff face in Pakistan's Hindu Kush. Swim with the blind angelfish that lives in one waterfall in one cave in Thailand. Squeeze through underground tunnels in New Mexico's recently-discovered Lechuguilla Cave, where crystals dangle like 18-foot chandeliers. Shot entirely in high-definition film, with revolutionary new aerial photography. From the team behind Blue Planet, including the esteemed and beloved Sir David Attenborough.

Davidson Seamount featured in Episode "Ocean Deep": Oceans cover two-thirds of the planet, yet largely remain unexplored. For animals that dwell on the surface or within the deepest abyss, it's finding food and conserving energy that is paramount. Planet Earth travels the world to reveal the extraordinary lengths life takes in its bid to survive this immense and barren realm.
