BBC Life DVD Giveaway

Have you heard of the newest nature documentary from the BBC?
It's called Life, and it is narrated by Oprah Winfrey. I'm pretty happy about this because that was one of my disappointments in the Planet Earth series, I had a hard time understanding the narrator's British accent most of the time, and my kids understood it a lot less and were bored after a few minutes.

This series was aired on TV, but we never got to see it because we don't get any TV channels. Our TV is "unplugged" without a converter box and we only redbox movies or watch the ones we already have. It's really nice not to constantly have to monitor what my kids are exposed to on TV. And its an added expense we don't need either. Though the first reason is the major factor in our decision to "unplug". There is just too much on TV I don't want to be bombarded by, and certainly don't want my kids to be either! And when I feel like we've watched a certain movie too many times then its time to give it away and I don't feel bad about it. It got its use in our home. This set though i would love to have!!! And I'm so hoping that we win it.

Thanks to Angela at The Suburban Jungle you and I have a chance to win a copy of our own!! Follow this link to her blog. You'll love her fun stories and fab giveaways!!

  1. We watched that series on TV back when we had DVR. They were pretty good. Since then, we too have "unplugged" but not quite as much as you. We thought DVR would help us just watch the shows we wanted but it actually made us watch more TV! There is so much crap on TV that I didn't want Natalia seeing so we're down to basic cable. She now watches PBS in the mornings when she wakes up and I like it b/c it's educational. I miss certain channels like TLC and Food Network but overall it's been nice to be "unplugged!"
