I met David Attenborough a few years back, a very nice guy and one of my heroes so when I heard about Africa I was so excited to see it on TV, the BBC have done a great job as ever and now in HD on Blu-Ray delivered to Australia you can get it for around $30, about $15 cheaper than the best price I've seen. If you're a Attenborough fan head over to Amazon and grab a copy:

The BBC absolutely make the best wildlife documentaries available, so saying this is one of the best is saying a lot, and it is certainly one of the best. I never realized how diverse the continent of Africa is in its wildlife & terrain, some of the views of the plains are simply jaw dropping, you can see for miles & it really comes across on film. After watching this series i have an unshakable sense of how Africa embodies the yin/yang of existence, the droughts/floods, deserts/rainforests, the ebb & flow of life/death, it is all captured in this series. It is a heartbreaking & heartwarming adventure but always awe inspiringly beautiful. Thanks to the makers of this great work, truly a masterpiece.
