Surely americans can get over the british accent and the different way we say things? Rest of the world tolerate american sayings and spellings for ease. I know you guys here can because you're (mostly) intelligent, educated (to a standard) human (mostly) beings.

Sorry to rant, but the repackaging these brilliant pieces of television I think loses something.

Attenborough is one of my heroes, what I don't have on DVD I've downloaded his collection (about 20GB I'd guesstimate). If anyone is curious of checking out the same, PM me and I'll nudge you in the right direction.

Actress and conservationist Sigourney Weaver was brought in to replace David Attenborough as narrator, as it was thought her familiarity to American audiences would attract more viewers.
nobody really asked for it, and I don't think it was completely necessary. Sigourney Weaver seems like a good egg, I don't mind that she did the american version. But choosing Oprah for Life seems like they're trying too hard.
