The Planet Earth series has been a fantastic series of nature documentaries.

With the third in the series we get to enjoy the brilliance that is Sir David Attenborough again, and the brilliance of nature paired with the sadness we are doing to it.

Planet Earth III like its predecessors has episodes themed around certain types of habitat kicking off with coasts and moving through to places like freshwater and forests. Each episode covers interesting creatures living in those habitats, how they survive, and regularly the human impact on them.

Each episode ends with some behind the scenes footage showing it being made, dabbling with some people working in these areas and more.

One of the most powerful was the initial episode Coasts which spent some time covering Raine Island and the green turtles that nest there.

Behind the scenes shows some of the people and their work to preserve the island, but also shows some footage of David Attenborough on an expedition there in the 50’s. This is especially cool because even though his voice sounds different, he still has his amazing way of telling a story as he observes nature that feels the same as when he does it now.

The final episode Heroes focuses on some of the people doing amazing things for nature around the world. From fighting illegal animal trade, to helping save species that are under threat, to people fighting to protect ecosystems and climate change. This is a fascinating episode that steps back from just looking at the nature and effects, and puts people doing the real mahi to try to save nature centre stage. It’s a damn fitting way to finish out the trilogy.

Planet Earth III is another excellent series that looks amazing on Bluray. From the classic narrative style of Sir David, to the brilliant visual footage, it’s just an incredible documentary series.

It’s hard not to recommend this on anyone’s Blu-Ray shelf.
