    The Great Migrations is a simply brilliant documentary series.
    I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys nature or good photography. The breathtaking photography, shot over two years, is some of the best that I have seen National Geographic produce.

    Dynamic images that capture the true feeling of the moment is tied together wonderfully by top-class music to give the viewer an experience like no other.

    Narration tells the story beautifully, although it is not overly descriptive or factually.

    Here's a breakdown of The Great Migrations:
    Photography: 10/10
    Music: 9/10
    Narration: 7/10
    Information: 7/10

    This is, in my opinion, the best documentary series that I have ever seen. A must see for anyone with the slightest interest in nature or photography!

    Didn't need all the "reproductive detailing". Got for my grandchildren, but so much for that!! Felt it was too choppy. Tended to lean too far on the blood and gore and not enough on the miricle of the subject. Could have been wonderful but was not.

            Lovely set of documentaries, with a "making" DVD. Stunning imagery, with engaging narration. The only negative thing that I would say is that it is a little too bloody and gory at times, but then, Nature's like that!

                This is an excellent series, documenting the greatest wildlife migrations on this planet. The exceptional photography brings us close to the action and shows what the animals have to endure.
                The behind-the-scenes extras show the difficulties and dangers the researchers had to go through.

                      Used this product for information and pleasure purposes only. There were parts, though so real in nature, that I thought were sensitive to young people - such as my 4-year-old grandson.
