Celebrate Earth Day & Enjoy PLANET EARTH For FREE!

We’ve blogged about the spectacular new nature series LIFE, a Discovery channel/BBC co-production, which airs on Sundays at 8 e/p. This past week we were contacted by BBC Earth to help spread the word that in celebration of Earth Day, the  award-winning Discovery Channel/BBC Earth series Planet Earth will be available on iTunes in HD with a special, one-time free episode download (“Pole to Pole”) from April 12-26, 2010.  Here’s some information about the episode from BBC Earth website:

PLANET EARTH’s premiere episode, “Pole to Pole,” ties the series together with a fresh understanding of how life in every nook and cranny of the globe is connected — from the highest mountains and darkest caves; shallowest water and deepest oceans; ice-covered lands and great plains; untamed jungles and giant forests; to freshwater and the harshest deserts. The sunward tilt of Earth’s orbit dictates all our lives, creating the seasons that trigger one of the greatest spectacles in the world — the mass migration of animals. It’s a unique view of the majesty of our planet and the amazing creatures that live here.

Planet Earth garnered legions of fans and universal critical acclaim with Oprah Magazine saying, “It is the most beautiful, wondrous and truly majestic series – the best thing I’ve ever seen on TV.”
