Planet Earth

Chris and I have been spending a bit of time lately watching tv; a relatively rare thing for us. We're making our way through the Planet Earth series and the photography is simply breathtaking.

According to Wikipedia:
Planet Earth is an Emmy Award-winning BBC nature documentary series narrated by David Attenbourough and produced by Alastair Fothergill. It was first broadcast in the UK in 2006. The series was co-produced with the Discovery Chanel and was described by its makers as 'the deifnitive look at the diversity of our planet'. It was also the first of its kind to be filmed almost entirely in high def. The series was nominated for the Pioneer Audience Award for Best Programme at the 2007 BAFTA TV awards.
Sonja here again: I'd highly recommend watching this series. Even Chris, who typically isn't as interested in nature films as I am, has been avidly watching along with me. So, put 'em on your netflix queue or give me a call and I'll send you a couple CDs (but only if you promise to send them back!).

Watching the series definiately reminds me that we still have a lot of traveling left to do. I'm adding a couple of new items to my life list, including viewing polar bears in the wild (before they're gone) and seeing the hammerhead shark migration.
