Packed with excitement, revelation and entertainment - and stunning screen firsts - the breathtaking ten-part blockbuster, Life, released on DVD and Blu-Ray from 2entertain on 30th November 2009, brings you 130 incredible stories from the frontiers of the natural world. Discover the glorious variety of life on Earth and the spectacular and extraordinary tactics animals and plants have developed to stay alive.
Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, Life allows us to truly relate to the animals and their endeavours, and to understand and appreciate them as never before. This epic series is released on DVD and Blu-ray from 30th November.
This is evolution in action; individual creatures under extreme pressure to overcome challenges from adversaries and their environment, pushing the boundaries of behaviour. Cutting edge cinematic techniques capture unprecedented, astonishingly beautiful sequences - birds running and dancing on the water's surface in dazzlingly intricate displays of courtship and fidelity, fish outwitting predators by using their fins to take flight, flies competing in a mesmerising eyeball inflation contests. Witness one of the most massive battles in all nature, as female humpback whales aim to secure the best mate by inciting rival males to fight.
More than four years in the making, filmed over 3000 days, across every continent and in every habitat, this is Life - as you've never seen it.
