Whether it's a crisp aerial shot of a wolf taking down a caribou, night footage of lions tackling an elephant, there isn't a moment that doesn't fill one with awe.

We are taken on an unforgettable year-long trip in which we are amazed, amused, surprised and often overwhelmed.

A feature-film condensation of last year's blockbusting BBC nature series Planet Earth - but, in a somewhat spineless move, it has been shorn of David Attenborough's breathy tones and given instead those of Patrick Stewart.

Like Arctic Tale, this is a great looking and interesting view of nature. Also like that other 2007 film, Earth falls short of being truly memorable.

Mix the grave but clear message of An Inconvenient Truth with the alternatively raw and cute look at wildlife of La marche de l'empereur (March of the Penguins) and you will get Earth, a bona fide documentary hit.

If Aunty Beeb could stick to productions of this quality, she wouldn't be in such a mess. Earth's script may grate with anyone over 12, but you can't help but be impressed by what you see.

For those who don't have the time to watch all 11 episodes of the BBC series, Earth is a nice alternative.

Highlights include the joyful footage of a polar bear tobogganing in the snow; baboons cautiously tiptoeing through floodwater, their hairy arms flailing for balance; and magnificent humpbacked whales gorging themselves on krill.
