Win Human Planet on DVD!

Once again the BBC has produced an amazing series with stunning camera work and compelling stories! From the highest, coldest mountain peaks to the hot, dry tropics, this series takes a look at how humans live on this varied planet.  Human Planet arrived on DVD and Blu-ray April 26, just two days following the broadcast conclusion.

Here is a synopsis of the series:

Human Planet is the first BBC/Discovery Channel co-production to focus solely on human behavior. Since premiering in the UK, the series has received overwhelming critical acclaim including The Telegraph proclaiming, "it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before" and The Sun stating that it’s "visually stunning and utterly fascinating, this is seriously impressive stuff." From the makers of Planet Earth, Life and Blue Planet, Human Planet focuses on humanities amazing, complex and profound relationship with nature. It weaves together 80 stories, many never told before, to illuminate humanity’s uncanny ability to adapt and live in every corner of our diverse world. Each episode centers on a particular habitat, and by using innovative and cutting edge filming techniques, reveals how its people have created astonishing solutions in the face of extreme adversity.

The Discovery Channel version will be presented by Charles Parnell and consists of six episodes that will take viewers to the farthest reaches of the globe culminating with, Life at the Extremes, a "best of" episode. The Human Planet DVD and Blu-ray will include all eight episodes from the original UK broadcast version, presented by John Hurt, extending the home viewing experience with three hours of footage not seen in the North American broadcast. It will include the episode, Cities, which will be exclusive to the DVD and Blu-ray. Additionally, the DVD and Blu-ray will take viewers deeper into the heart of Human Planet with its set of ten Behind the Lens "making of" bonus features, and, exclusive to Blu-ray, a further "making of" feature called, Zanskar, accessible via BD-Live. Zanskar showcases the astonishing life struggles of a resilient group of people living at the edge of the Himalayas.

Here is a preview of some of the amazing video you can see in this series:

We don't travel much. Our most memorable family trip was Disney World in Florida and it was quite beautiful, even if it was all part of a resort.

That said, I really enjoyed the natural beauty of New Hampshire this past summer.

The most amazing place I have visited was the state of Alaska. I was there during the summer and couldn't believe all of the flowers, snow covered mountains, and the abundance of wildlife.

My favorite place to visit is up in Virginia touring the homes of the Presidents. It's not that exotic, but it sure was educational! Thanks for the nice giveaways! :)

The most amazing place I've is Lhasa, Tibet, and I'm not sure I could even begin to describe the experience. Three days and burnt into the brain forever.

I would say Tierra del Fuergo in Argentina...went there while our family was living in Buenos Aires for my husband's job.

The most amazing place I've visited was Nootka Island on BC's coast before it was developed. Raw nature at it's best!!

The most amazing place I visited was a place just outside of Santa Cruz, California. Called "The Mystery Spot". Where there exists a gravitational anomaly and you feel as though you are being pulled forward and walking in a leaning stature. LOL It's really hard to describe in words but it is truly a unique place and memorable experience. Here's a LINK to the site that will give you better details. http://www.mysteryspot.com/

Thanks for hosting the giveaway. I appreciate it.

Belize was amazing. I would love to go back, but I have so many amazing memories - the people, the snorkeling, the jungles, howler monkeys, Mayan ruins. All fantastic!

It would be the grand canyon.

Seeing a volcano erupt at night with glowing lava,
feeling Pacific breezes on an empty beach,
smelling fragrant flowers when walking through the park in Hilo...
Visiting the Big Island of Hawaii was amazing!

I was in the Swabian Alps, in Germany. The scenery is amazing and the mountains are littered with castles.

The most amazing place I visited was Washington D.C. when I was sixteen, and I was lucky to get out alive. [I'd rather not explain that story...but it's pretty amazing.]
