Educating the masses: the PLANET EARTH dvd series

"I'm only focused on the economic aspect... I don't want to recycle... I don't care about pollution... What's in it for me?"

We all know someone like this. There's one in every family or group of friends. Here's a chance to try to do something about it.

For less than $50 on DVD and $65 on high def Blue-Ray, you can purchase a gift "to educate that someone we all know" with the BBC series Planet Earth (see the trailer embedded in this post). For those of you who saw clips of it on TV last year and were annoyed by Sigourney Weaver's narration, rest assured that she's missing in action on the disc series... Sir David Attenborough gives it an added touch with the English accent.

...or if you haven't seen it yourself, pick it up. It's worth every penny, and you'll watch it repeatedly. S

I'd like to pick this up for my own education. Where do you order it from? An org or is it widely available at the usual retailers?

You can find this at Amazon on DVD or Blu-ray... it's also available at Costco too. Those are probably the places where you'd get the best value.

Otherwise, you might check a local used music store to see if a used copy is available... then there's always the public library, which is a total freebee, but there might be a wait time as this is probably a hot commodity.

Your last bet would be something like a Best Buy or a Barnes & Noble.

If you have an HDTV, and were considering a Blu-Ray player, I'd definitely go with that format... the clarity will blow your mind.

There's Sony Blu-ray player models now for as low as $400... and they also will play standard DVDs.
