Planet Earth Season 1-2 Complete 480p HDTV 150MB All Episodes – Planet Earth is a landmark 2006 British television series. Five years in the making, the most expensive nature documentary series ever commissioned by the BBC, and the first to be filmed in high definition.
In 2001 the BBC broadcast The Blue Planet, a landmark series on the natural history of the world’s oceans. It received critical acclaim, high viewing figures, audience appreciation ratings, and many awards. It also became a hugely profitable global brand, eventually being sold to 150 countries worldwide. Feedback showed that audiences particularly liked the epic scale, the scenes of new and unusual species and the cinematic quality of the series. Programme commissioners were keen for a follow-up, so Alastair Fothergill decided that the Natural History Unit should repeat the formula with a series looking at the whole planet. The idea for Planet Earth was born, and the series was commissioned by Lorraine Heggessey, then Controller of BBC One, in January 2002.
