Listed below are some of the titles currently available on the Galapagos Islands:

Galapagos
The Islands that changed the World
BBC DVD
Price in UK pounds
Price in US dollars
 
This BBC film narrated by Tilda Swinton is a perfect example of what the BBC does best. Breathtaking photography combined with some of natures most extraordinary animals, including Lonesome George, the last Pinta Giant Tortoise.
 
The opening sequence alone makes this an amazing documentary, with exquisite views of the pacific ocean coupled with the most stunning close up detail of many of the animals -whales, seals, iguana, boobies, frigate birds, albatross. My particular favourite is the sequence of Blue Footed Boobies mass dive bombing into the shallow surf.
 
Not only does the film cover all the animals for which the Galapagos are known, but it also illustrates graphically the tumultuous volcanic origins of all the islands.
The package comes on two DVDs.
Disk one contains two episodes:
Born of Fire and Islands that Changed the World.
Disk two contains the a double feature: Forces of Change and Lonesome George and the Battle for Galapagos
