Oprah Winfrey narrates this breathtaking nature miniseries, another ratings blockbuster from the producers of Planet Earth. Charging elephants, monarch butterflies in flight and a posse of polar bears
on a snack break are just some of the fascinating subjects caught remarkably up close by high-tech cameras. (BBC Warner, $60)
