Sigourney Weaver, Planet EarthIf you didn’t catch Planet Earth on Discovery last night, you missed out. (We told you to watch!) The first three episodes of the 11-part series narrated by Sigourney Weaver aired last night and it was awesome. And in HD – incredible.

Regardless of whether you saw the program or not, today you’ll get a chance to chat live with the filmmakers of Planet Earth, producers Penny Allen and Jonny Keeling. Check this link at 12 noon ET today, and ask all of the questions you are dying to have answered about this incredible production.

Much of the footage shown in this series was previously “never before captured on film” – and you can tell. The filmmakers pioneered much new technology and have shown us a new view of the planet as we know it.

Catch the next episode on Sunday at 8pm ET. And don’t forget to check out the live chat today.

    Planet Earth was incredible last night. Did you catch the episode entitled “Mountains” after the “Pole To Pole” one…wow. My wife and I went over to the in-laws just to catch it in HD and I was baffled by how amazing it looked.

    During the wild dog scene, I even caught my dog getting caught up in the action on-screen. Now that’s high-definition is she’s interested! Wild. I need HD. I admit that I’m not too crazy about Sigourney as the voice-over. I hear the UK voice talent brought a lot more to the table.

    I tuned in a little late to the chat today, but did catch this. In response to how “permanently damaged” the earth is, producer Penny Allen wrote: “I definitely noticed pollution effects working at sea. Even when I was hundreds of miles from shore, we would constantly come across plastic waste. The plastic waste kills millions of sea birds and sea turtles each year.”
