Trespass

David Attenborough has this uncanny ability to make the mundane absolutely enthralling.  His new series Frozen Planet takes the viewer on a journey around the two poles as he brings us stunning views of the wildlife, the environment and the people.   

His narrative is both informative and emotive; the cinematography is spectacular from the Arctic centre to its tundra down to the Antarctic coast through to magnetic south pole, this series is wide in scope and ambition.  The episodes are for the most part based on the changing seasons the melting and freezing ice brings on a whole range of migrations, hibernations, breeding and spectacular landscape changes.  One of my favourite moments is the first glimpse of a polar bear mother emerging from hibernation with her new cubs, and their first frolic in the snow. The series even takes us to a research station in the coldest place on this planet, a space-age self-sustaining building on stilts, able to lift itself metres higher to avoid the accumulating snow 

Video & Audio 

The images are in crisp 1080i with a stirring instrumental sound track.   The sound track unfortunately, is adequate, but only in Dolby Digital 2.0. 

Special Features  

At the end of the episodes are small making-of vignettes, well worth the watch and allows us a fascinating glance into the struggles that took place making this series.  There also is a special menu and sound track for the visually impaired. 

David Attenborough has really mastered his craft His latest is one of his best.  Frozen Planet is a must for nature lovers as well people who just want to be awed and lost in the grandeur of this planet for an hour or so.
