So emotional, so cinematic and so educational
25 November 2018 | by georgiaebennettSee all my reviews

This is definitely BBC's best. The filming is literally like being in a cinema, the shots are breathtaking. In fact, I'd pay to see this at the cinema. The emperor penguin episode absolutely killed me. I spend my whole time watching the episodes saying 'oh my god' 'that's just mad!' etc! Some of the scenes and facts are just incredible. I am so glad to see the BBC have slightly moved the time of showing earlier so kids can watch and learn. (Should be earlier though). Anyone who doesn't watch this is seriously missing out
