Looks like the UK is going to get this release first. Anyone know when the NA release will be? Planet Earth had a half year lag between the U.K. and U.S. release. Hopefully that's not the case here.

Anyone know more about this title? I assume it's related to David Attenborough's "Life" series (plural): 'Life of Birds', 'Trials of Life', 'Life in the Freezer', 'The Life of Mammals', 'The Private Life of Plants', 'The Living Planet', 'Life on Earth' and 'Life in the Undergrowth'. But I can't imagine that it includes them all for that price (or on a single BD).

It's BBC, it's nature, it's a documentary.

Can't go wrong with that. Will be a must have on Blu-ray for sure!

No, it's a new 10-part Life series that is currently airing on BBC. I'm guessing the NA release will be in Spring 2010.

True true.
Because Calamari Marionette Ph.D sounded pompous, that's why.

I expect this to be a full-HD recording . Planet Earth Wasn't.
Wish that blu-ray is most faithful to the theater release...

All BBC releases are a must have on Blu because of the breathtaking PQ.

Bad news guys ..... long story short import the UK version. Planet Earth I heard was region free, I hope this is as well. I refuse to listen to Oprah's voice ...

So what's a good place to import this to the US??

March 2010 on the Discovery channel. Here's the press release and the US marketing poster;

Quote:
Nov. 2, 2009 (Silver Spring, Md.) — Global media leader and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey will narrate Discovery Channel's all-new 11-part series LIFE, set to premiere in March 2010. The series reveals the most spectacular, bizarre and fascinating behaviors that living things have devised in order to thrive. Many of these were captured for the first time using the latest in state-of-the-art high-definition filming techniques.

As one of the most influential voices of our time, Winfrey will lend her talent to some of the most compelling imagery ever captured on film. From strange creatures, such as the star-nosed mole that hunts underwater using bubbles to smell its prey, to epic spectacles, including millions of fruit bats darkening the Zambian sky, each episode tells mind-blowing stories of survival with drama, humor and suspense.

"We are honored to have Oprah Winfrey tell the story of what is already a visual masterpiece," stated John Ford, President and General Manager of Discovery Channel. "The stories capture your imagination, curiosity and emotion as you see animals and plants up close and personal — each story more amazing. Ms. Winfrey will be the perfect complement to this blue-chip natural history television event."

More than four years in the making, filmed over 3,000 days, across every continent and in every habitat, this is life as no one has ever seen it before.

LIFE is produced for Discovery Channel by the BBC. Mike Gunton is the executive producer for the BBC. Susan Winslow is the executive producer for Discovery Channel. Discovery Channel and the BBC also created the award-winning natural history series PLANET EARTH and BLUE PLANET.

just like the sigourney weaver VO was subpar, so will the Oprah version...

man, can you imagine the attention it will receive on her show, though?!

Will she be using that annoying catchphrase (aha moment) of hers.

There is no one as good as Sir David Attenborough and it will be a sad day when he is to old to do any more.
