    Wait what? So Americans watch Planet Earth too? LOL

    I’m not okay with how David Attenborough’s name was pronounced, I forgot American’s say those sort of names funny. Att-en-bruh not Att-en-boh-row. Att-en-burr-uh also works.

  8. Trump Truth Watch says:

    Planet Earth at times actually looks like CGI. It’s so realistic, it looks fake.

    i prefer this kind of videos over the politics videos

  16. Gleanix says:

    I would love to see what percentage of footage they actually use after a week long shoot.
    Nearly every shot we see in the final version is simply breathtaking.

  17. Shaun Dreclin says:

    funny how everyone in the comments is saying they don’t like politics… while bringing up politics in an unrelated non political video

  18. BBC Earth says:

    A fantastically insightful video Joss! We cannot wait for the next chapter.

  19. SlightlyCrusty says:

    I remember watching the Iguana being chased by the snakes for the first time and screaming at the TV for the entire thing.
