We’ve been enjoying the original Planet Earth lately (looking forward to resuming it after taking a break for Christmas movies). I’ll have to look into 2 as well. The Netflix “Our Planet” series had some amazing footage too, and “Planet Earth” keeps reminding me of it because both are voiced by David Attenborough, but “Our Planet” is strongly focused on climate change.
“Raising the Dinosaur Giant” is an episode of PBS “Nature” that we liked lately – about possibly the biggest dinosaur species found. It’s also voiced by David Attenborough, since he’s apparently pretty good at that.
As a kid I liked the “Really Wild Animals” series with an animated globe character that was voiced by Dudley Moore. It seems a bit cheesy now but my kids enjoy it. I’m open for suggestions for nature documentaries that are good for young kids (i.e. not too much carnage) without being completely dumbed down.
