Frozen Planet Blu-Ray Recap

In our house we like to watch anything that has to do with the earth or nature and recently we got a chance to analyse 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.
