Earth Day is a big deal here at PopSci. It's a time for admiring our incredible planet, and for giving back-- to the Earth, and to our readers (that means you). We've teamed up with the BBC to bring you a gallery of stunning images from the popular Planet Earth series, video clips (so you can appreciate the full affect), and our most extravagant giveaway yet.
For a chance at winning one of two DVD box sets of the complete Planet Earth series, or one of six DVDs of volume three (Great Plains, Jungles, Shallow Seas) or volume four (Seasonal Forests, Ocean Deep) from the series, leave a comment below. Eight lucky winners will be randomly chosen and announced on April 30, 2009. Good luck!

Planet Earth is one of the greatest documentaries ever made. Happy earth day everyone!
I have watched the Planet Earth series.
wow that is a good reward... and yes, happy earth day!
Loved the photo gallery. It's amazing how spectacular of a feature Planet Earth really is. I always catch it on TV but unfortunately I don't have HDTV where I'm currently living so it's not as spectacular as when you get to watch it in HD. Keep up the Earth Day coverage in the future!
I am hooked on the series and recommending it to everyone I know.
This would be a perfect gift on Earth Day!
I love Planet Earth!
I can't ever get sick of Planet Earth. I have watched it several times and am always blown away. The camera work couldn't be better!
My whole family loves PE and I'm taking my daughter to see "Earth" this Friday. My kids would love to be able to pop a disc in anytime they want :D
I love this video!! My students are learning so much and they are very engaged in the video.
I purchased Planet Earth soon after its release. An episode per week airing on TV created my need. The ability to be in the most remote of locations and view incredible imagery had me anticipating the next episode. The music is fantastic fitting and the mix is threaded nicely. Hats off to the fortitude and persistence of the PE team. Viewers should make it a point to watch the "behind the scenes" clips. Sigourney's smooth, collected voice was a most excellent choice for the narration. One of my best viewing moments was when I took the DVD set over to my Aunt who was at the time confined to her home because of ailments. She was enthralled! She really liked the Bird of Paradise capture. She asked and I had to comply, that I leave the DVD set with her. It was great to see her enjoy it so much at such a difficult time in her life. I'll be picking up an HD version at some point. Thanks much to all of the people involved in making the PE production possible!! Five stars from me. Great post for Earth Day PopSci! Plant something people! jd
better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it...
Would love to see this in Blu-Ray.

A great contest for a great site!
This is an amazing series, I've been able to catch a glimpse of it on cable every now and then and was looking to buy it, but it's much too expensive for me... Eventually though I'll be able to own it! Yet from what I have seen, the series is much more interesting than any other video of Earth I have ever seen! It would be a perfect source to use in classes teaching about different regions of the world and to show the animals that are being endangered as well! I hope that the team will be back to create another series, possibly one on a different set of species or a new category all together! Also I think this giveaway is a perfect method to promote Earth Day! Great job PopSci and BBC!!!
Count me in Please!
Count me in!
Was around for the 1st Earth Day -- what an amazing event this day has become over the years. So great to have something significant as an observation to pass on to the next generations.
Cool a contest
