HD Rebirth for Nature’s Great Events

 Frozen Planet’s popularity seems to have broken the ice for seeing more natural history in HD, at least on TV One. Screenscribe.tv has just confirmed that tonight’s 8.30 repeat of Nature’s Great Events will screen in HD, even though it originally aired two years ago in SD. Narrated by David Attenborough, this six-part, BBC must-see intelligently and spectacularly examines how global climactic forces drive animal behaviour around the world, from the Arctic to the Serengeti. Its primetime re-run is refreshing recognition of natural history’s appeal in this market — and TV One’s acquisition of new HD masters of the series hopefully reflects more respect for HD on a channel that screens far less 1080i content than TV2 or TV3. And who knows — recognising HD’s potential to give a repeat broadcast fresh appeal might even encourage Sky to consider an HD wildlife channel, something it has resisted based on such channels not working internationally.

    I wish all TV shows and channels were in HD, I love HD 🙂

  2. It would be awesome if Sky had an HD wildlife channel. I have Nature’s Great Events and a number of other nature series on Blu-ray and they all look stunning.
