Frozen Planet Blu-Ray Review and Giveaway

54 Flares Twitter 44 Facebook 8 Google+ 2 StumbleUpon 0 Pin It Share 0 54 Flares ×

In our house we like to watch anything that has to do with the earth or nature and recently we got a chance to review a copy of Frozen Planet.  In addition to the DVD series we also received a cool penguin hat and some awesome cookies that the kids couldn’t get enough of.

From the Emmy-winning team behind Planet Earth and The Blue Planet: Seas of Life, this is the original 7-part BBC series, Frozen Planet, narrated by world-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough and including over 90 minutes of footage not shown on television plus over four hours of bonus materials! 

Last Sunday it was a rainy day out so we all stayed in and made lunch with popcorn and cookies and watched the first DVD in the series which included The ends of the earth, Spring and Summer.  It was about 3 hours long and Shae hung in for about an hour but Melinda, Sabreena, Shaun and I watch the whole first disc which was AWESOME.  It is awesome to see  animals like polar bears and killer whales close up in their natural habitat and it is amazing that people are able to brave the elements to catch this kind of footage.

Here is some additional details about Frozen Planet:

  • Format:Blu-ray
  • Run time:About 5 1/2 Hours
  • Originally Aired On:Discovery Channel
  • Closed Captions / Subtitles:This Product has English Subtitles for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired

  • Production Video Diaries – A set of 47 video shorts made by the Frozen Planet producers, directors, camera crew and more giving personal insights into this remarkable series
  • Frozen Planet: The Epic Journey – The best moments from this remarkable series compiled into one 60-minute highlights special
  • Music Only Viewing Option
  • English and Parisian French Narration and English, Spanish and Quebecois French Subtitles

Here are the episodes that are on the three discs:

To the Ends of the Earth 
At the North Pole, the sun returns after six months of darkness.

Spring 
Spring arrives in the polar regions, and the sun appears after an absence of five months.

Summer 
Polar animals race to rear their young during times of plenty under the midnight sun.

Autumn 
Autumn brings epic journeys for polar wildlife as most hurry to escape the refreeze.

Winter 
The story of the few extreme survivors who remain in the polar regions during winter.

The Last Frontier 
What draws humans to the coldest and most hostile reaches of our planet?

On Thin Ice
David Attenborough investigates the effects of rising temperatures at the polar regions.

If you are into shows like this then you are in luck because two Look What Mom Found…and Dad too readers will have the chance to win this series on Blu-Ray.  All you have to do it tell me if you watch nature shows and if so what is your favorite show?
