Wild Pacific

 (TV) (2008)

Wild Pacific Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The Pacific includes some of the most remote spots on the planet - yet there's not a single island that has avoided colonizers, whether it be plants, animals or humans - and generally all three. Go beyond clichéd images of swaying palms and idyllic beaches to explore this immense and surprising ocean as it has never been seen before. One ocean, 25,000 islands, half the water on Earth.

For more about Wild Pacific and the Wild Pacific Blu-ray release, see Wild Pacific Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.



Wild Pacific Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Wild Pacific features an attractive but problematic 1080i/VC-1 transfer that occasionally succumbs to the limitations of its various sources. The series palette is easily the highlight of the presentation, bolstering the absorbing blues of the Pacific Ocean with stable colors and vibrant contrast. Black levels are notable as well (despite the troubling fact that some of the deep-sea photography is plagued by persistent artifacting and crush), and dimensionality is, more often than not, quite convincing. Detail is spotty -- edge enhancement is used throughout each episode, fine textures aren't nearly as consistent as I had hoped, and the standard definition footage that pops up from time to time is an eyesore -- but the majority of shots look as if they'd be right at home on Planet Earth, Galapagos, or Ganges. The only significant cause for concern? The technical image sometimes struggles to keep up with the series gorgeous visuals. Banding, macroblocking, and source noise haunt several undersea locales, and aliasing is a regular offender. Even so, the Blu-ray edition of Wild Pacific trounces its DVD counterpart, makes a commendable effort to reach the high bar set by its BBC brethren and, in the grand scheme of things, looks pretty good.


Wild Pacific Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Unlike many NHU documentary series available on Blu-ray, Wild Pacific soars with a meaty DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track; one that plunges Cumberbatch's measured narration into a world teeming with spectacular wildlife and natural wonders. Not only is his every word crisp and clear, his pauses grant the soundscape ample opportunity to surge forward and dominate the proceedings. LFE output releases a convincing cavalcade of crashing waves across the floor, satisfying rear speaker support spreads flocks of birds and flittering sea creatures across the soundfield, and crystal clear fidelity transforms the overall experience into a strong and stable joy. Better still, directionality is polished and precise, and pans are slick and smooth, making Wild Pacific stand out amidst other documentary releases limping by with a standard stereo mix. The episodes themselves still amount to a fairly chatty series, but BBC Video's excellent lossless track elevates the presentation and adds significant value to the release.
