"BBC Planet Earth" on CBC (1 in WS, 2-6 in HD & DD5.1) Returning June, 2007

Link to CBC...
I just posted in the CBC thread, but thought that this amazing series deserved a thread of its own.

I've already seen the original BBC airings for Planet Earth with widescreen, but SD resolution, and I have to say that it's a STUNNING series (even in SD, so I'm really looking forward to seeing it in HD!).

The photography has to be some of the best I've seen in a nature program (and the BBC is well known for it's nature shows). In the first episode, they use a camera which has an incredible zoom lens to be able to zoom in on the subject from 1km away, allowing for some visually detailed chase sequences.

Everyone that has an HDTV must watch the show. Heck, invite your non-HDTV owning friends round so they can watch it too! Set your PVR's now and make sure you have enough space for this as I believe this to be an amazing showcase for HDTV.
