2. Frozen Planet (BBC)

Description: From the Emmy-winning team behind Planet Earth and The Blue Planet comes Frozen Planet, the epic tale of two disappearing wildernesses. The Arctic and Antarctic remain the greatest wildernesses on Earth. The scale and beauty of the scenery and the sheer power of the elements are unmatched anywhere else on our planet. And against all odds, these vast, frigid environments are teeming with life. Using the latest camera technology, Frozen Planet captures unimaginable imagery above and below the ice, and follows the extraordinary fluctuations that accompany the changes of seasons in this most extreme of environments, often for the first time. Frozen Planet takes you inside a polar bear’s den to witness a mother polar bear and her newborn cubs, showcases the thrilling hunting tactics employed by a pod of killer whales to launch a seal off an ice floe, uses time-lapse photography to allow you to witness the amazing underwater fauna thriving around Mr. Erebus, the world’s most southerly volcano, and much, much more. Using crystal clear high definition cinematography, Frozen Planet will open your eyes to the remarkable colors and variety of life in this frigid environment. With the Poles under grave threat from climate change, this extraordinary series provides a chance to explore these great wildernesses before they change forever.

The Frozen Planet DVD and Blu-ray will feature the original BBC broadcast version, with narration by world-renowned naturalist David Attenborough (Planet Earth, Life, The Blue Planet).

3. Pete Seeger’s Rainbow Quest with Johnny Cash, June Carter & Roscoe Holcomb:

Description: Pete Seeger’s Rainbow Quest TV shows were originally aired in 1965-1966; they were released in VHS form by Cap Wineberger in 1985 on his Central Sun label. Now, after another 20 years, the best of these have been revived by Shanachie Records in DVD form, and they are wonderful additions to the rather limited library of old-time, country and Bluegrass music captured on film. The Johnny Cash/June Carter footage: it is fascinating, to say the least. A very young Cash has lots to say along with his fine songs here, and June Carter just oozes the unique, ever-engaging Carter Family charm. The second hour of this disc is devoted to Roscoe Holcomb, who plays both banjo and guitar and sings in his powerful “high lonesome” style. He shares the show with Scottish folk singer Jean Redpath. Powerful stuff here, thankfully preserved! Review, which this typists agrees with whole heartedly, is taken from the countrysales.com site.
