BBC Life Blu-ray | Don’t Settle for Less, buy the David Attenborough version [Update]
[Update: You can now buy the David Attenborough version in the United States here]
I’ll cut straight to the chase … Oprah Winfrey will be narrating the US Version of ‘Life’ when it airs on the Discovery Channel in March 2010. David Attenborough will be narrating the superior UK version. He did an amazing job with Planet Earth. I highly recommend that Blu-ray by the way! Amazing stuff and the picture quality is outstanding.
For those of you that haven’t heard of the series ‘Life’. Here is a trailer I yanked from Amazon UK.
Life will be released on Blu-ray in the UK on November 30, 2009.
Looks like Amazon UK ships to the US. Is this Blu-ray region free? I heard Planet Earth was region free.
Global media leader and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey will narrate Discovery Channel’s all-new 11-part series LIFE, set to premiere in March 2010. The series reveals the most spectacular, bizarre and fascinating behaviors that living things have devised in order to thrive. Many of these were captured for the first time using the latest in state-of-the-art high-definition filming techniques.
As one of the most influential voices of our time, Winfrey will lend her talent to some of the most compelling imagery ever captured on film. From strange creatures, such as the star-nosed mole that hunts underwater using bubbles to smell its prey, to epic spectacles, including millions of fruit bats darkening the Zambian sky, each episode tells mind-blowing stories of survival with drama, humor and suspense.
“We are honored to have Oprah Winfrey tell the story of what is already a visual masterpiece,” stated John Ford, President and General Manager of Discovery Channel.“The stories capture your imagination, curiosity and emotion as you see animals and plants up close and personal — each story more amazing. Ms. Winfrey will be the perfect complement to this blue-chip natural history television event.”
More than four years in the making, filmed over 3,000 days, across every continent and in every habitat, this is life as no one has ever seen it before.
