Creating a series of this scope and scale is almost impossible to measure. The amount of work that went into Planet Earth is incredible... And the dazzling footage unveiled here is breathtaking, honest, and beautiful in so many ways.

The sheer variety on display ensure that the series never wears out its welcome, and it's surprising how quickly one gets wrapped up in the narratives on display.

Planet Earth is perhaps the greatest nature documentary ever made. Even someone like me, who hasn't seen many nature films (let alone one I actually enjoyed), can appreciate the once-in-a-lifetime experience that the miniseries delivers.

The science and the scenery embarrass us with their dignity: Quietly, they make it clear how unfair it is that the fate of the world depends on otherwise so inconsequential a species.

Viewers can debate which images are the most jaw-dropping, but as assembled, it's a major achievement, making glorious use of aerial and time-lapse photography to bring epic grandeur to each chapter.

While it didn't have an explicitly environmentalist argument, by showing the planet's complex weave of life and natural processes, it was possibly TV's most moving work of eco-tainment yet.
