Didn't have the time for the BBC's exquisite Planet Earth miniseries? This documentary (from two Planet alums) is an effective, albeit inferior, Cliffs Notes version. Narrated by James Earl Jones, it follows three moms and their babes around the globe: arctic polar bears, elephants in the Kalahari Desert and humpbacked whales migrating 4,000 miles to Antarctica. It's gorgeous—love those purple mountain majesties!—but you get the same rush watching the Discovery Channel.
