video: ‘Planet Earth’ narrated by kids

I love me some nature documentaries, be they heartwarming or heartbreaking and truth be told, it was catching sight of “Planet Earth” on Blu-Ray in an electronics store that really got me wanting to buy an HDTV. I’m also a...

…and give us both £5

Once again, I ain’t bov’vered by the WGA strike because I’m finding some pretty cool stuff to watch. Of course it’s all from the BBC which, if I had my druthers, I’d find a way to get a direct feed...
