BBC is boxing up the Earth on Blu-ray, packaging together its top sellers 'Planet Earth' and 'Earth: The Biography' in a six-disc bundle due later this month.

In a late-breaking alert to retailers, BBC Video will release 'The BBC Earth Collection' on Blu-ray November 18. The six-disc set contains 'Planet Earth: The Complete Series' and 'Earth: The Biography.'

Tech specs are identical to the previously-release stand-alone versions of both titles. There are no new supplemental features or other bonus materials.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray bundle has been set at $129.95.
