  • jennifer

    yes! Gets me pumped

  • ben

    it’s already begun. it is simply amazing.

  • Jeff

    Thats gotta be the best trailer… ever

  • Simply put – nobody does it better than the BBC. This series will blow your mind. I just hope they keep the John Hurt narration for the North American viewers. For some bizaare reason Oprah narrated the Life series in the USA as opposed to David Attenborough over here (basically the definitive voice of Nature as confirmed by my Canadian fiance).

  • it is completely stunning

  • Jim

    Brilliant. Seen a couple of them. As above – no one does it like the BBC

  • having already seen it, it is a fantastic series and I’d recommend it to anyone

  • Gemma

    Most if not all of them have been on in the uk, the ocean and the jungle ones are immense!!!

  • Matthew

    This looks crraaazy.

  • oh boy, oh boy, oh boy…

    can`t wait!!!!!

  • lapetitefaon

    jesus, I think my heart stopped beating at some point while watching that, unreal images, cannot wait!!!

  • Craig

    It is amazing! Really good PDF here on how they made it and the camera techniques http://tinyurl.com/6zf2av2

    Wait till Autumn when Frozen Planet starts in the UK, will be stunning!

  • unreal

  • alinazarzar

    It certainly looks great, but they should call it “Men planet”, because only a few women appear in the trailer. There we go again, judging men´s activities as amazing and brave and keeping half of the world`s inhabitants in the shadows… sorry but I can`t feel indiferent about this kind of things.

    • good point. i have a hard time watching trailers/documentaries like this and just getting lost in the awe… i can’t help but wonder about the complicated nature of (privileged, most likely potentially former colonizers) outsiders making these kinds of documentaries, regardless of how stunning some of the images are and impressive the technical side of getting those images is…

  • so good. this more just reminds me of how effective music can be in making you feel something powerful. but yeahhh for indigenous populations

  • Kevin Courtney Blythe-Wood

    great great great!!!!!!!!!!! BBC!!!!

  • tom mcdonnell

    Can anybody identify the music being played – simply beautiful!

Artist Draws on Pieces of Trash and Leaves Them for People to Find

Wenyi13Wenyi15

Wenyi traverses the streets of Dali, Yunnan Province in China, picking up discarded scraps and drawing on them as part of a personal mission to get people to see art in everyday life. After each sketch is completed he leaves it somewhere more visible but still in the exact spot where the original piece of garbage was collected. See more images below.

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
