Blu-ray Review: Africa
Rated: Not Rated
Street Date: February 26, 2013
Available On: DVD and Blu-ray
The Film: Executive Producer Michael Gunton (“Life”) and his crew turn their lenses on Africa and its wildlife for the latest BBC/Discovery Channel series.
The Extras: Behind-the- Scenes, Outtakes, Deleted Scenes, Interviews
Recommendation: Sir David Attenborough hosts this 6-part series that takes viewers into the heart of Africa’s varied climates and like many of the recent BBC nature documentaries it is a spectacular voyage. The cinematography is gorgeous, the narration sublime and the information is vast and engaging. I planned on watching the series over a week’s worth of days, but found it too captivating to ignore and did it in two sittings. If you enjoyed the BBC’s “Life” or “Planet Earth” you’ll love this as well.
