Since the early fall my household has been watching David Attenborough's nature documentaries. We have watched Life in the Undergrowth, Life in Cold Blood, Planet Earth (British version), and are currently watching The Life of Mammals. The series are filmed beautifully and the information is stimulating. There are so many creatures that I have not seen before or had any idea about how they live and look. Attenborough is a very enthusiastic host and it seems he cares deeply about the creatures he is talking about. On the Life in Cold Blood DVDs there are bonus interviews with the scientists who study the different reptiles in depth, here too Attenborough is engaged and asks interesting questions.

I saw the Life of Birds series several years ago but am ready to watch them again. We are also on the look out for The Private Life of Plants, and Life in the Freezer.
