Our Planet

Documentary series focusing on the breadth of the diversity of habitats around the world, from the remote Arctic wilderness and mysterious deep oceans to the vast landscapes of Africa and diverse jungles of South America.

"Our Planet" is characterized by overwhelming pictures, thrilling music and an entertaining speaker, but don't expect too detailed information. Excellent for children and families!

In "Our Planet" the beauty of nature is presented in often breathtaking and unique images, and the consequences of our actions on the planet are shown in a subtle, non moralizing way.

The dramaturgy of the individual episodes is excellent and they are always both intellectually and emotionally stimulating. The journalistic performance in this series is very good, the arguments are comprehensible and the statements are backed up with facts and figures and explained in an understandable way.

In "Our Planet" it is not so much about getting the viewer to act and present options for action, but rather about conveying to him through beautiful pictures the appreciation of other creatures and the value of preserving the remaining nature.

The individual episodes are never boring and convince from the aesthetics of the pictures to the film music by a very good cinematic quality.
