The Majesty and who needs CGI?

You want sweeping epics? Then the BBC's Planet Earth documentary series is one you should watch and own.

The 5-DVD series is now available locally for PhP 750 bucks. That's 9 hours and 16 minutes of great footage about nature and the world around us filmed in high definition and narrated by Sir David Attenborough.

Five years in production, over 2000 days in the field, using 40 cameramen filming across 200 locations, this is the ultimate portrait of our planet. A stunning television experience that combines rare action, unimaginable scale, impossible locations and intimate moments with our planet's best-loved, wildest and most elusive creatures. From the highest mountains to the deepest rivers, this blockbuster series takes you on an unforgettable journey through the challenging seasons and the daily struggle for survival in Earth's most extreme habitats. Using a budget of unprecedented proportions, photography and unique, specially developed filming techniques, Planet Earth takes you to places you have never seen before, to experience sights and sounds you may never experience again.

Thoroughly enjoyable and awe-inspiring it makes you wonder and question what we have done to our world now that it has turned against us.

There's another fantastic series -- The Blue Planet that you might want to get as well.
