The first part of this great series covers mountains, caves, shallow seas and deserts - and has been produced in top quality, as known from several previous BBC documentaries. The pictures are amazing and you will be rendered speechless, believe me. Each episode focuses on a certain region, with the goal of covering the whole planet with the full series. From my point of view this is a very impressive advice to take care of our planet (without addressing this topic directly or in an aggressive and demanding way, as known from several other productions). If you like documentaries, especially about nature and wildlife, this series is definitely a must-have - and if you don't like documentaries you should get it as well...
