Africa Blu-ray Detailed

Posted February 4, 2013 11:52 AM by Webmaster

BBCBBC Home Entertainment has officially detailed the Blu-ray release of BBC One's Africa, the six-part, Sir David Attenborough-narrated BBC Natural History Unit documentary series from Life executive producer Mike Gunton. Africa streets on February 26, 2013.

Synopsis: 553 cameras. 100 days on horseback. 6,526 anti-malarial tablets. Just under 50 tons of kit carried. Executive producer and Primetime Emmy-nominee Michael Gunton and his team of dedicated filmmakers utilized all of this and more to bring you Africa. Four years in the making across 27 countries, Africa is the latest landmark Discovery Channel/BBC co-production to combine groundbreaking technology and dedicated filmmaking to produce a view into this mystifying continent as you've never seen it before. Narrated by renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough, this extraordinary series takes you to epic, never-before-seen locations and captures the incredible new behaviors of the creatures that struggle to survive in a rapidly-changing continent.

Africa is home to some of the most extreme, beautiful and diverse habitats in the world – not to mention the creatures that inhabit them. The series travels to the last great gathering place of the rhinoceros and encounters male leaf-folding frogs in the Gola Forest fight for dominance... by kick-boxing. It captures up-close footage of chimps hunting for honey in the Congo using four different tools as well as brave lizards hunting for flies from the backs of sleeping lions in the Serengeti. From the deserts to jungles, the mountains to the valleys, from St. Croix Island, home to the largest breeding penguin colony in Africa, to the depths of the Dragon's Breath Cave – the largest underground lake in the world – the series is a stunning journey through the spectacular continent of Africa.

Special features include:

  • Over 70 minutes of Exclusive Interviews
    • Sir David Attenborough
    • Executive producer Mike Gunton
    • Series producer James Honeyborne
    • Cameramen Martin Colbeck and Richard Matthews

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?

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