BBC Earth Africa Available on DVD and Blu-ray on 2/26

Last week I told you about One Life which I will get back to in a moment. BBC Earth also sent me the Africa movie on Blu-ray to watch for a movie night. We had a few sickies in the house on Monday, so we watched the movie on Monday afternoon. After seeing One Life at the movie theater, my kids wanted to see Africa. BBC Earth Africa is available in both DVD and Blu-ray. We watched it in Blu-ray.


One Life Review

One Life was really good. The movie was about 1.5 hours which is perfect for kids. The shots were gorgeous and the facts were so interesting. We all learned so much. Our favorite was the Snow Monkey who only allowed the royal family to sit in the hot springs in the winter. My kids got a real kick out of that scene.

It’s definitely worth going to the movie theater to see. Seeing it on the big screen made it so much better.

Africa on DVD and Blu-ray

But, if you can’t make it to the big screen, watching it at home is still good. BBC Earth Africa goes through all the different areas of Africa and shows you how the different climates affects the different animals. We loved the Congo the best. Watching how the rainy season completely changed the floor of the forest into a big lake with fish.

  1. Hi Michele
    ,issued your give away Africa was one of the best series I have seen for ages the photography was amazing you can understand why it took them so long to put together and film. The piece about the chimps and the honey was something else. All I can say is they really must want the honey bad.

    Thanks lee
