4. Planet Earth

Released on: 2006
Directed by: Alastair Fothergill
Starring: David Attenborough (narrator)

One of the most exquisitely shot documentary series to ever grace television, this series — narrated by David Attenborough — takes the viewer, literally, from “pole to pole,” exploring the various fauna and flora of Planet Earth. Each of the eleven episodes features a different biome of Earth, and the last ten minutes show the different challenges that the production crew faced while they were filming the series (because, believe it or not, wild animals aren’t very cooperative). A second series, Planet Earth II, was released this past year, and again, David Attenborough returned as the narrator. This is the perfect documentary series for kids who are interested in the earth sciences.
