    Can someone please recommend a good educational wildlife DVD, preferably focussing more on animals rather than plants. My old-year-old nephew is fascinated in animals so I want something for him to enjoy, and at the same time I can enjoy too.

    Thanks.

    Agreed. I particularly enjoyed Life in the Freezer which you can get from DVD.co.uk for £12.99 :smashin:

    Blue planet is in the HMV sale but at £25 - I think it's £18 at play

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. Blue Planet (though it'll appeal to me) won't appeal to my nephew because it's too dedicated towards the sea.

    The "Life Of Mammals" title grabbed me, it seems more to my nephew's taste, but I never saw the TV series. Is it any good? I searched the Net for reviews and they seemed to slate it. They say it's too much of David Attenborough ramming evolution theory down the viewer's throat rather than talking about the present-day mammals themselves, and it shows too much of David that he gets in the way of the animal footage. Any comments on this please?

    Funny although I'm interested in animals I thought David Attenborough program on plant the most interesting of the lot.

    You could always try Microcosmos. Quite unusual and different from the standard wildlife films, but worth checking out.
