I notice the UK version has 3 BD's whereas this one only has 2, but this one lists the running time as 15 minutes longer. Can anyone tell us more about the differences?

I hope the PQ is good this time around, after Planet Earth's disaster, and Life's slight improvement.
Please don't tell me Planet Earth was anything near reference quality. It wasn't. Too many problems to even mention. Disney's Oceans is still the best nature documentary I have seen to date.
Would love to own this one.

This miniseries was fantastic, I highly recommend it. My only regret was it was only 6 episodes. I could have easily watched 10.
