Overview

Three years in the making, and from award-winning National Geographic cinematographers, Great Migrations takes viewers around the world on the arduous journeys millions of animals undertake to ensure the survival of their species. Shot from land and air, in trees and cliff-blinds, on ice floes and underwater, Great Migrations tells the formidable, powerful stories of many of the planet’s species and their movements while revealing new scientific insights with breathtaking high-definition clarity. Alec Baldwin narrates the six-hour documentary miniseries, which is broken into four parts: "Born to Move"; "Need to Breed"; "Feast or Famine"; and "Race to Survive."As narrated by Alec Baldwin, the unique National Geographic documentary miniseries Great Migrations undertakes an ambitious and seemingly impossible task: cinematically tracking the geographic relocations that many animals make perennially, to ensure the survival of their respective species. To capture this unusually intimate footage of animals on the move, the program was filmed on ice floes, in cliff binds, underwater, and in many other challenging locations. This set contains the entire miniseries as it originally aired on television.

I have been a fan of Nat Geo's nature documentaries since the days when Richard Kiley narrated them on PBS, and I have many nature docs on Blu Ray, but even though I have only watched the first episode of this excellent series I would rank it in the top 5 of my collection. Picture quality is excellent as is AQ. Some of this animal behavior has been seen before, but it is presented in a very compelling way with excellent narrative spoken by Alec Baldwin, who also does the "Planet Carnivore" narration for Nat Geo Wild channel. I rate my experience watching nature blu rays by the "Wow" factor, that is, how many times did I say "wow" while watching and in the first episode it was at least 5 times, which is good. I am very much looking forward to viewing the remaining episodes and the behind the scenes pieces as well. I would highly recommend this blu ray to anyone who loves nature documentaries, it is really excellent.
