Foreword by Sir David Attenborough
Companion to the BBC TV series which achieved legendary status as soon as it started. Fothergill was the producer and author of the extraordinary Blue Planet series. Planet Earth is even more spectacular and ambitious, simply because of the scope provided by the variety of terrestrial habitats and their wildlife. Many animals depicted have never been recorded adequately on film; some of the world's leading nature photographers were contracted to spend long periods waiting for opportunities which only a project of this magnitude could capture. Many of the results are transposed in this breathtaking book.
