Description

“If the hairs on the back of your neck do not stand on end at some point during this program, have somebody call an ambulance. You are in a coma…” – The Age

Five years in the making, over 2000 days spent in the field, across 200 locations, a budget of unprecedented proportions and shot in high definition film, Planet Earth is the ultimate portrait of our planet.

Planet Earth Part One entranced over 1.5 million viewers when it debuted on ABC TV in July 2006, and ever since Australian audiences have proven to be as enamoured as the rest of the world with the series that has been described as ‘not merely a programme, but an occasion’. Embracing the world's incredible landscapes and fascinating wildlife, Part Two of the epic BBC series Planet Earth celebrates the Earth as never before, and also includes the much loved ‘behind the scenes’ documentaries, each giving the viewer an even richer experience than ever before.

Planet Earth Part Two DVD features the following episodes, plus the informative, ‘behind the scenes’ documentaries, not shown on television, which reveal the detail and intricacies behind the production of each episode.

Episode 6
Ice Worlds – A journey to the polar extremes of our planet, where for most of the year the Arctic and Antarctic are locked in ice. As the sun abandons one pole and journeys to the other, these frozen worlds undergo the most extreme seasonal transformation on the planet.

Episode 7
Great Plains – The vast open wildernesses of African savannah, Asian steppe, Arctic tundra and North American prairie are the great plains of the planet. Together they cover more than a quarter of the land on Earth and one living thing is at their heart – grass. This humble plant feeds the greatest gatherings of wildlife found anywhere on Earth.

Episode 8
Jungles – Jungles cover roughly three per cent of our planet; yet contain a staggering 50 per cent of the world's species. Located around the warm, sunny equatorial zone, complete with constant daylight, they are the most productive habitats on earth. Conditions are perfect for life to flourish, but surviving the jungle is far from easy.

Episode 9
Shallow Seas – Our planet's continents are fringed by shallow seas. Rarely more than 200 metres deep, they lay on the continental shelves that may stretch for hundreds of miles before the sea floor drops into deeper, darker waters. All together they constitute a mere 8 per cent of our oceans, but they contain the vast majority of its marine life.

Episode 10
Seasonal Forests – From the evergreen forests of the frozen North to the deciduous dry forests of the Equator, this episode reveals the greatest woodlands on earth.

Episode 11
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. This episode reveals the extraordinary lengths taken to survive this immense and barren realm.

Planet Earth Part One also available.
