Deal: ‘BBC Natural History Collection DVD Featuring ‘Planet Earth’
  |  @   |  

In celebration of Earth Day today, Amazon’s spotlight Gold Box deal of the day today is the The BBC Natural History Collection featuring Planet Earth DVD box set for $69.99 (that’s 65% off the list price of $199.92).

The 17-disc DVD box set includes four BBC nature series from award-winning documentarian David Attenborough: Planet Earth, The Blue Planet: Seas of Life Special Edition, Life of Mammals, Life of Birds.

Also in honor of Earth Day, the site is running a special Earth Day Sale where you can save up to 50% on DVDs and Blu-rays like An Inconvenient Truth, Prehistoric Earth, and many more documentaries.

Considering the site separately sells Planet Earth (by far my favorite of the four and probably the most popular too) for $47.49 and The Blue Planet (second favorite) for $32.49, if you get the DVD box set, you’ll already be paying less for these two, plus, you’ll be getting two more series —Life of Mammals alone is $71.99, while Life of Birds is $32.49, you do the math (but yeah, HUGE savings).

The measly 40-feet we got to dive in was a tiny sampling of the fascinating world that occupies 3/4 of the earth’s surface. This was made abundantly clear when I watched BBC’s The Blue Planet: Seas of Life DVD Collector’s Set.

Narrated by the incomparable David Attenborough, this documentary explores all aspects of marine life over the course of eight episodes on four DVDs… “Ocean World,” “Frozen Seas,” “Open Ocean,” “The Deep,” “Seasonal Seas,” “Coral Seas,” “Tidal Seas,” and “Coasts.” There’s also a fifth DVD with four bonus featurettes that loosely tie into the series. Five years in the making, The Blue Planet won multiple Emmy awards for its musical score and stunning cinematography.
