Nature's Great Events, Season 1HDClosed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.


Narrated by Sir David Attenborough. Witness the planet's most breathtaking natural events, and follow the dramatic wildlife stories behind them. Combining the epic cinematography of Planet Earth, with all the emotion, intimacy and storytelling of a wildlife diary, this series charts the effects of global climatic phenomena which transform entire landscapes, drawing in thousands of animals and determining their fate. Each episode is set in a different part of the world — from the great flood of the Okavango delta to the plankton blooms of the Pacific Ocean, and from the Indian monsoon to the race for survival triggered by the annual Arctic melt — and shows how immense natural forces, often starting thousands of miles away, drive a chain reaction that culminates in a spectacular wildlife event. For some animals, it's a window of opportunity, but for others, it's the most dangerous time of their lives. Follow their emotional, involving stories to a dramatic climax where their fate will be revealed.

Poor Quality? Not really.

I'd argue against airs comment about the quality of these videos. He/she/it/that obviously does not grasp the concept of digital distribution and the fact that files must be compressed to make the whole process viable - especially when dealing with high definition content. With a few moments of your time, you can be watching a great video which looks far better than SD broadcasts. I agree the image is not fantastic but it's a darn sight better! My advice - find the video on your hard drive and open it with quicktime. Now a little callibration is required, so open "window"->"show A/V controls". Here you are greated with a brightness control, a colour control, contrast control and tint control. Everyones display will require different work, but i'd sugest lowering the brightness and increasing the contrast (i use two clicks for each). I've yet to need to tweak the colour or the tint. My monitor has a hometheatre pc mode which also aids picture quality. So to sum up - if a blu-ray player is not an option for you at the moment - these HD videos are great. Hope this was useful.

Natures Great Events: The Great Melt

What an amazing programme, I couldn't take my eyes of it watching the Salmons journey and all they faced. What a brave camera man filming those bears, they looked like giant teddy bears but with sharp teeth and claws. So surprised they didn't see man as a threat. Loved watching them almost dancing in the water trying to kick up the salmon from the bottom of the river. Kinda felt sorry for the salmon but incredible watching those bears. Def a must to see nature at its best so unspoiled but yet highlights what we as man are doing to our planet.

Beautiful TV, as it should be.

Beautiful cinematography, narration and subject. The BBC at it's best. This was an amazing episode (The journey of the Salmon) and I expect the rest of the season to be equally so. A must buy...
