One of the best nature documentaries in existence!
1 August 2014 | by mikecorvinSee all my reviews

I ordered this on VHS back in the early 1990s and I consider this series to be flawless and beyond expectation. Gorgeous videography and Sir David Attenborough's sublime narration makes for a perfect educational experience. Breathtaking shots, sometimes brutal and raw. It is the Trials of Life, and there are trials to behold! If you are a nature buff, THIS is the series for you! I was raised on this stuff and I consider it to be one of the best nature series out there. Now it needs to be released on disc or download so I can get it again as I haven't had a VHS player in 10+ years. I would love to see this show in a HD format, so bring on the Apple TV or bluray format!
