We have over a dozen BBC Nature/Science series. This is my daughter's favorite, and we've been rewatching it again after several years. It's an excellnet series and deals with humans as an inseparable part of the environment, primarily focuse on communities that still live with it versus paving over it. The only caveat is that, unlike many of the more specialized series (Madagascar and Mountain Gorillas) this one largely skips over how many populations contribute to widespread environmental degradation - whether it's hydroelectric projects in the industrialized world, or too many people, usually poor and/or forced off their land, trying to survive in marginal areas and causing desertification, flooding, or widespread erosion. That is actually why this can be appropriate for a more advanced grade schooler, though some people may be uncomfortable with the certain elements (sex, ritual violence) that come up a couple of times. I think they handle it quite well, just dealing with it as another aspect of these societies.

Decided to pick up one for myself and another as a gift. Less than $20 total. Great deal.

While this item is region free, this UK release is encoded 1080i/50 which means many US players and TV may not be able to play it. Most Samsung and LG players will be able to play it, most Sony other than the PS4 will not. Other brands it's more unpredictable.

This is a great series and great price, but make sure to check you equipment compatibility before you order
