Wild Africa (mini-series) - 4K UHD--BD/Blu-ray Combo Set for 'Wild Africa - with Tiny Giants'

The BBC to release the second-ever TV-on-UHD-BD title ever, this May!

Posted by David Lambert
    Following the release of BBC AMERICA's critically acclaimed series Planet Earth II - the first natural history television series released in 4K UHD - BBC Home Entertainment is bringing more of nature's wonders to 4K. Previously a limited retail release, Wild Africa/Tiny Giants Ultra High-Definition will be available May 16, 2017 at retailers nationwide in the U.S. and Canada. The Wild Africa/Tiny Giants Ultra High-Definition set combines two spectacular nature programs in stunning Ultra High-Definition 4K quality. The set includes a special excerpt of Planet Earth II.

    Wild Africa: Take a spectacular ride across, over, and through the most dramatic continent on earth: Africa. Narrated by Academy Award-nominated Helena Bonham Carter (the Harry Potter films), Wild Africa follows the powerful, life-giving element, water, on a journey through Africa on an adventure that proves nature can be more fantastic than any fiction.

    Tiny Giants: The producers of Life and Planet Earth share this spectacular ground-level view of the world's smallest heroes. Special cameras transport viewers in a very intimate way into another world to experience the titanic battles these creatures face to survive. Narrated by Golden Globe-nominated Stephen Fry (The Hobbit films, 24: Live Another Day), Tiny Giants reveals the astonishing lives of tiny animals in an adventure of giant proportions.
BBC Earth's 2001 six-part miniseries, Wild Africa, is coming to 4K UHD-BD format this May 16th, a 2-disc set with the Ultra-High-Def version on one disc, and a regular 1024p high-def Blu-ray Disc version on the second. It's priced at $34.98 SRP in the USA, and CA$43.98 SRP in Canada.

Besides the 6 episodes of Wild Africa ("Mountains," "Savannah," "Deserts," "Coasts," "Jungle," and "Lakes and Rivers") you'll also get the 44-minute 2014 short, Tiny Giants (which was originally produced in 3D, but is presented "flat" on this release). Additionally you'll also get a sneak peek of Planet Earth II, the first-ever TV production to be released on 4K UHD-BD format (Wild Africa will be the second!).

Here's a look at the packaging for the Wild Africa - with Tiny Giants UHD-BD/Blu-ray combo set:
