It's the version with Sigourney Weaver narrating... but $25 is an amazing price... hope someone enjoys it.

I believe it's $25 + $4 shipping = $29.

The better (and uncut) BBC version has been (or still is) $37 at Costco, $39.99 at Amazon, and was $32 at WBshop.com in December. I'd recommend people pay a little more for the BBC version.

I bought the HD-DVD version before Blu-Ray won. I'll upgrade to Blu when I can get the BBC version for well under $20. I almost got it on red2blu but Warner yanked it the very day I tried to place my order, and I think when they put it back weeks or months later they jacked up the price. For now I'll keep waiting.

Before I saw any of Planet Earth I thought people were just being snobs about the BBC version (which is fairly common when discussing any British show), but having watched the BDs (BBC) numerous times I tried to watch the American version one night on Discovery and... yeah... spend the extra scratch for the BBC version.

So is the only difference between versions being the narration?

No, the BBC version is uncut and runs longer....the Discovery version is shorter and missing footage since it had to air with more commercial breaks for us ad-slaves (Americans)....
