New York – April 12, 2017 – 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.
