In honor of  Earth Day’s 40th Anniversary, BBC Earth is offering all my readers a FREE Download of one episode of their 11 part series,  Planet Earth through iTunes. This offer is valid from April 12-26, 2010, the episode is Pole to Pole and you can choose between two separate formats: SD or HD. This offer is open to U.S. residents only.

I personally love documentaries like this. I practically live on the National Geographic, Discovery and History channels. On Easter Sunday, we watched Drain The Ocean. It was amazing. I enjoy seeing how things work, how they were made and where the scientists in the know think we are going. I also have a “thing” for any of the 2012 prophecies. Don’t ask. I’m odd.

I did actually see this series when it came out originally and it is fabulous. If you want to know how our planet works as a whole, how life on Earth is sustained, then download the whole series. You will not be disappointed.

In celebration of Earth Day’s 40th anniversary, the beloved and award-winning BBC Earth series Planet Earth is now available on iTunes with a special, one-time free episode download (“Pole to Pole”) from April 12 – 26, 2010.

This jaw-dropping, 11-part series from the BBC’s Natural History Unit presents the epic story of life on Earth. Series producer Alastair Fothergill and his team spent four years in production, over 2000 days in the field, using 71 cameramen filming across 204 locations in 62 countries to capture the ultimate portrait of our planet. It has garnered legions of fans and universal critical acclaim with Oprah Magazine saying “It is the most beautiful, wondrous and truly majestic series – the best thing I’ve ever seen on TV.” Using a budget of unprecedented proportions and captured on HD cameras, Planet Earth is among the highest rated and best selling HD programs ever made. It offers stunning visuals perfect for any HD television or HD handheld device like the Apple iPad which launched on April 3rd.

The BBC Natural History Unit has been producing extraordinary programming for over 50 years, and continues to take viewers to new and exciting parts of our Earth. Planet Earth, a BBC/Discovery co-production, aired on the Discovery Channel in 2007. It is the must-see precursor to the highly anticipated BBC nature series Life, currently airing on the Discovery Channel and releasing on DVD June 1, 2010 from BBC Video.

So go and get your free download of episode 1 of Planet Earth, Pole To Pole, now. This freebie will only last until April 26, 2010, so hurry!

Happy 40th Anniversary, Earth Day!
