I am using it for my secondary school classes. Kids are really engaged. Usually run 20 minutes at a time but they try for more :).

"Entertaining amazing collection"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

There are two DVDs. Each has an acceptably logic sequence of chapters. The narrator shows us examples of almost unbelievable facts about plants, travelling from Carolina to Japan, Africa, Australia Borneo and more. English common (mis)-pronunciation of Latin names are difficult to grasp, so better activate subtitles-on. The ploys of plants to multiply, grow, survive and being territorial are so ingenious, humans use trial and error. Here it is all planned, super duper!

"Great series"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Fantastic time-lapse footage and David Attenborough as masterly as ever. A whole new world rarely glimpsed!

Description

Sir David Attenborough reveals plants as they have never been seen before – on the move and dangerously devious. Each programme takes one of the major problems of life – growing, finding food, reproduction – and the varied ways plants have evolved to solve it. Filmed from the plant's point of view, using computer animations, fibre-optics and unique time-lapse photography.

Special Features:
Blue Peter interview
