I feel short-changed
1 February 2014
This is a feedback on the blu-ray version of Planet Earth:
In an age when 'free downloads' are preferred mode of securing movies and documentaries for majority of people I know, there are a few like me who not only pay for DVDs but shell out three times more money to buy a blu-ray version of the same DVD pack one possesses just to appreciate the hardwork undertaken in producing documentaries like Planet Earth and to contribute one's mite to fund such beautiful projects.
But I am disappointed with the blu-ray version as 'Planet Earth Diaries' which were part of the 'complete series' in the DVD version has been culled out.
Although the blu-ray experience is breathtaking, I feel shortchanged by this culled version of Planet Earth. One of the reasons why I bought the blu-ray version was to watch the diary on the snow leopard. It would be an understatement to say I am thoroughly disappointed that this is not there in the blu-ray version.
I guess the blu-ray should have at least had the warning, 'the incomplete version'
