Episodes comprise: 'To the Ends of the Earth', 'Spring', 'Summer', 'Autumn', 'Winter', 'The Last Frontier' and 'On Thin Ice'.
David Attenborough presents this BBC natural history documentary series telling the story of the beginning of life on Earth and recreating the first animals that ever existed. The film shows how some of the evolutionary features of these most primitive creatures are still alive today in modern animals including humans, and traces the evolution of the first eyes, the first solid body parts and the first feet and backbones.
Complete collection of famed naturalist David Attenborough's groundbreaking wildlife documentary series, exploring the rich variety of plant and animal life on the planet.
Using a variety of pioneering camera techniques, these documentaries reveal aspects of the natural world that have never been seen on camera before, and that established Attenborough's reputation as the greatest wildlife broadcaster in the world.
Includes all eight series:
In one of the most innovative natural history series ever presented, Spy in the Wild deploys over 30 ultra-realistic animatronic Spy Creatures to go undercover in the animal world. This 5 part BBC One series captures unique animal behaviour closer than ever before.

More than four years in the making and packed full of filming firsts, One Life captures unprecedented and beautiful sequences of animal behaviour guaranteed to bring you closer to nature than ever before.
A major feature length production from BBC Earth Films, One Life has been created from 10,000 hours of incredible, intimate footage of amazing creatures that are in turn heroic, strange, loveable, beautiful and surprisingly funny.

Documentary written and introduced by David Attenborough. This wildlife programme charts the lives of various animals on our planet, chronicling their differing journeys from birth to adulthood, each from their own unique perspective. Each episode focuses on one stage of the animals' lives, depicting the struggles they face in the quest to reach adulthood and the duty to continue their bloodline if they are successful in overcoming the odds and reaching parenthood.
Box set containing the complete BBC natural history series examining life beneath the world's oceans. 'The Blue Planet' presents an overview of the programmes to come, offering a sense of the amazing variety and complexity of the underwater kingdom. 'The Deep' explores the deepest depths of the oceans and looks at the predators which live there. 'Open Ocean' examines the stretches of deserted sea where very little life can be found, except some of the most dangerous predators of all. In 'Frozen Seas' life in the Arctic seas is compared with life in the Antarctic. 'Seasonal Seas' looks at the way the sun effects the marine environment in the temperate seas. 'Coral Seas' examines the way coral reefs are formed, the life which flourishes among them, and the destruction which ultimately comes their way. In 'Tidal Seas' the series examines tidal movements and their effect upon marine life. And finally 'Coasts' looks at the way underwater life uses the regions above the tide line, a habitat which holds few indigenous species but plays host to many visitors. Also included are two special episodes: 'Making Waves', a look at some of the characters who helped bring the series to the screen; and 'Deep Trouble', an investigation of man's relation to the sea.
The latest David Attenborough nature documentary series, shot in HD. This ambitious 2006 series, described as 'the definitive look at the diversity of our planet' was the first ever to be filmed entirely in high definition. Every episode but the first one looks at one of the Earth's natural habitats and examines its local features, together with the breadth of fauna found there. While filming it, the crew caught several firsts - places and animals never before caught on camera. The fact that it was co-funded by Discovery Channel, BBC and Japan's NHK, took 5 years to make and was shot in over 200 locations is apparent and the series is everything you'd expect from Sir David Attenborough and his team if they were unconstrained by budget or practicality.
The demise of the dinosaurs, 65 million years ago, did not leave the world empty. A succession of extraordinary creatures has since come and gone, leading to our own ancestors, and yet we know virtually nothing about them. These bizarre beasts were some of the most fascinating creatures ever to have inhabited our planet.
The award-winning team that brought us Walking With Dinosaurs now explores the rise of the mammals. The latest scientific findings, advanced computer graphics and strong natural history stories are combined as we return to the sights and sounds of extinct worlds... this time full of life you hardly knew existed.
Walking With Beasts takes you on a journey through time to distant worlds: from the hottest, wettest climate the earth has ever known to one of the coldest... the Ice Age. See the early forerunners of the whale (walking!), avoid the carnivorous pig the size of a rhino, and pity the horse the size of a cat, eaten by a bird the height of a man!
And we humans are not safe either... mighty saber-toothed cats with teeth the size of carving knives have a taste for our own ancestors!
An amazing journey in Norway's far north as Joanna Lumley pursues a lifelong dream fo track down the elusive, stunningly beautiful Northern Lights - 'the true wonder of the world'.
The first two series of the documentary presented by esteemed British wildlife commentator David Attenborough exploring some of the natural world's greatest curiosities. Among the issues examined by Attenborough are the role electric eels played in human research into electricity and other quirks in animals that have proved interesting to scientists and researchers. The broadcaster also looks at pairs of animals that share certain traits such as the emperor penguin and wood frog, both of which can live in exceptionally cold conditions; the rhino and the hedgehog, which possess formidable defences to deter predators; and gorillas and vampire bats, which have a reputation for aggression that is largely unwarranted by their behaviour.
Michael Palin continues his series of epic journeys, this time crossing the Sahara - an environment as alien and hostile as any on earth. But, instead of emptiness, the Sahara reveals a vast range of peoples, cultures and landscapes with a rich and unique history.
The journey begins in Morocco, where Michael must traverse nature's gateway to the Sahara - the beautiful Atlas mountains. Slowly, the mountains give way to the arid Sahara and its thousands of miles of sand, stone, ferocious winds and vast storms that sting the face and blind the eyes.
From the disrupted territory of Western Sahara, through Mauritania on a two kilometre long iron ore train, he makes for Senegal and its old French colonial towns. After paying a visit to Goree Island, from where millions of slaves were sold and sent on to Europe and America, it's on to Mali and a chance to meet the Dogon - people with a view of the world so unique that it can be tricky to grasp, especially when eating lunch in midday temperatures of 134F.
In preference to a three month wait for the ferry to Timbuktu, a local cargo boat becomes home for the journey up the Niger River. From the Niger, Michael heads north over the Hoggar Mountains through the rich gas and oil fields of Algeria and on into Libya, where we have the rare chance to experience a culture long closed to outsiders. His final stop is Tunisia, a country familiar to Michael having been the location for Monty Python's The Life of Brian.
Walking With Dinosaurs
The makers of Walking With Dinosaurs returned to make two specials, The Ballad Of Big Al and Land Of Giants & The Giant Claw to continue to delight fans of the original series.
The Ballad of Big Al
Land of Giants & The Giant Claw

Earth – Power of the Planet:
How Earth Made Us:
Fergal Keane narrates this six part nature series on the diverse aspects of Africa's natural history. Taking over two years to produce the documentary ranges over the physical forces that have shaped this continent of over twenty countries. Episodes are 'Mountains'; 'Savannah'; 'Deserts'; 'Coasts'; 'Jungle'; and 'Lakes and Rivers'.
Having completed travelling around the World in 80 days, Michael Palin set out to travel along the 30 degree East line of longtitude - from the North to the South Pole. This, however, proved much more of a challenge and Palin, and his film crew, managed to use most modes of transport to travel through 17 countries over 5 months.
