BBC's Planet Earth


Thanks to David Attenborough, the BBC, and a 40-strong camera crew, I have seen lions hunting elephants, migrating Mongolian gazelle and, last night, a parasitic fungi that feeds on its insect host before bursting out of its body, Alien-style.

If you didn't catch episode eight of the wonderful Planet Earth - and, frankly, you should be ashamed of yourself - you get a second chance on Saturday night (25 November, 7pm, BBC 2).

And if that isn't enough, a five-disc DVD box set, featuring the entire series (plus extras) is released on November 27. Planet Earth is a spectacular achievement; five years in production, over 2000 days in the field and across 200 locations.

Put it on your Christmas list; you deserve it.

I love the Planet Earth series and think that the footage is amazing. I watched an episode showing a male polar bear desperately searching for food because his habitat had been destroyed by global warming. I found these images deeply upsetting, and have written a blog to make people aware of these effects and to give information on what we can do to help. I would very much appreciate your comments and any information that is relevent. Please feel free to take a look.
