You have to watch this show if you ever get the chance. They had a marathon on last week and I couldn't turn it off. The photography and cinematography are simply the best I've ever seen. Check it out when you get the chance it is awesome.

We watched parts of this when they ran it on the Discovery Channel. Thanks for the update, so we can catch more of it. It really is a beautiful work!

This show is actually done originally, by the BBC, in the UK. Amazing, isn't it? I love seeing the polar bears, they are my favorite animal.

The footage is awesome work. They use extra slow motion cameras of some shots. The most spectacular one I recall was the one of a shark coming completely up out of the water to catch a seal or something. Although I don't relish the fact that the seal was killed (I like seals) the imagery was almost 3 dimensional. And I like Polar Bears too!

Oh, and I was wrong on it being on the Animal Planet. As Scholar pointed out, it's on the Discovery Channel.

Click on the link below to see the video of the shark attack on the seal.

The trailer for the series (five years in the making) can be seen at the link below.

It is so crazy how far away the cameras actually are, when they get the shots. On the polar bear episode, they show the polar bear swimming in the ocean, and then they slowly back away, zooming out. By the time they are completely zoomed out, the polar bear looks like a little speck. VERY expensive, yet AMAZING, award winning show.

Default great show!

The only show both my golden retrievers love to watch. They hear thing we dont, and sometimes their reactions are laughable!
