Comments about this product:

Like others I googled for the Alec Baldwin version. Was directed to your website. Thought I was ordering the Baldwin version only to find I was given the Attenborough version. Talked to a rep who then informed me the Baldwin version was not available and my money would be refunded and to keep what I had. Short answer is 'money never refunded', Baldwin version not available.

              I googled "frozen planet with Alec Baldwin" and was connected to your online store site which did NOT mention that David Attenborough was the narrator. Alec Baldwin's name was in bold print in the description - I ordered the DVD expecting to hear Alec as narrator.

                      pods were awesome and the entire series was something that should be shown in schools and colleges throughout the USA.

                        I purchased this series dvd because the tv series is so great. I was expecting Alec Baldwin so I was pretty surprised when his voice isn't on this series. I know, it says David Attenborough on the advert for the disc, but I missed that when ordering.

                        No matter, it's the same footage as the one with Alec Baldwin's voice over.. so still a fantastic series to own.

                            We saw the series "Frozen Planet" on the Discovery Channel, and I was so mesmerized that I had to buy it for my mom. I sent it to her, and she also absolutely loved it, as did my brother and sister in law! It's the type of show where you cannot stop watching and saying, "Oh, my gosh!"!!! I can't get over the fact that we have so much we don't know about on our world, so much fighting for survival. And I also can't get over the fact that there are people who risk their lives to go film this stuff for us!!!

                                I get up for work at 3am and must be asleep very early. Now I can watch this wonderful documentary again & again. Bought the 2nd one for my 8 year old grandson as he enjoys these DVDs as much as I do.

                                  I was very pleased with Frozen Planet...It was beautifully presented, informative and inspiring. It definitely puts things in perspective in presenting what is happening at our Poles, our planet and the creatures walking with us. As usual, Discovery does not disappoint.

                                    I'm a docent at the Bronx Zoo and an avid eco-traveller. In the past two years, I have visited both polar regions. This film not only showed and expanded on what I had already learned but added information and photos I never would have had otherwise. Congratulations on a spectacular job!
