Natural beauty is always the prettiestBy SamFromMaidenhead (257 reviews) from Maidenhead , 11 Nov 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]Missed this when it was aired on telly but a friend recommended to watch this and I am so glad he did. Astonishing photography and beautiful music make this a magical voyage into the lives of the wildlife that surround the Galapagos islands. With a haunting narrative from Tilda Swindon the four hour documentary is both educational and inspirational. This probably rivals if not complements the other great Naturalism documentary Planet Earth. Best seen on a huge LCD or Plasma TV with surround sound. Good enough to feel glad to be alive with such beauty.

GalapagosBy annon (20 reviews) from Lichfield , 04 May 2009Beautifully filmed, very informative, an ideal family film.
Wall-EBy ianmg (4 reviews) from Huntingdon , 13 Apr 2009Typical animated Pixar Product. Rather dull as the idea is unique but the delivery is rather stereotypical. In all, somewhat over rated!
Galapagos- the Final FrontierBy a customer from Royston , 11 Apr 2009An excellent introduction to the incredible diversity and power of life on earth. If such a relatively small set of Islands bursts into view what can the rest of mankind do exept -watch in wonder.
GALAPAGOSBy SANDYGOONER (1 review) from Sandy, England , 08 Oct 2008Thoroughly enjoyed these discs
coffee table book.By Richard from Reading , 16 Sep 2008This is the video equivalent of a coffee table book.
The pictures are breathtakingly perfect, but the narration is very lightweight. Tilda Swintons delivery is particularly irritating. Her wittering on about magical fresh water pools is enough to make me wish for a music only audio option. She seems to be concentrating on enunciating every syllable as though to a child.
It makes you realise what a gem Attenborough is. Having a narator who knows what he is taking about rather than an actor reading out lines seems to make a big difference.
