Free Planet Earth download from iTunes!

A few weeks ago we were channel surfing and stopped to watch a nature show briefly. Or at least I thought it was briefly- but when I tried to change the channel and continue on with my surfing, Ethan protested, loudly! He then watched the rest of the episode and asked me about it often after it was over. We found ourselves watching another nature show a few days later, and Ethan was equally as intrigued!  

So I'm really excited about an upcoming event- starting on Monday, April 12th and running through April 26th, the first episode of Planet Earth, "Pole to Pole", is going to be available for free download on iTunes to US residents in either SD or HD format. I have a feeling that I know what Ethan's going to be watching on the afternoon of April 12th! 

Here's some more information about the Planet Earth series, from a press release that I received. 

 This jaw-dropping, 11-part series from the BBC’s Natural History Unit presents the epic story of life on Earth. Series producer Alastair Fothergill and his team spent four years in production, over 2000 days in the field, using 71 cameramen filming across 204 locations in 62 countries to capture the ultimate portrait of our planet. It has 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.” Using a budget of unprecedented proportions and captured on HD cameras, Planet Earth is among the highest rated and best selling HD programs ever made.
And here's a clip from the show!

I received no product or compensation for this post, just passing on some information that I received.
