BBC Video has officially announced that it will bring the documentary 'Galapagos' to Blu-ray and HD DVD this fall.

Arriving in stores on October 2, 'Galapagos' blends spectacular cinematography (shot entirely in high-definition) and never-before-seen satellite imagery to explore the Galapagos Islands, one of our planet's fascinating microcosms of life and landscapes.

'Galapagos' marks BBC's first high-def documentary release since 'Planet Earth,' which it released earlier this year on Blu-ray and HD DVD to unprecedented sales success. 'Planet Earth' has rapidly become not only both the best-selling documentary and box set title on both next-gen formats, but also the top revenue-generating high-def disc release to date.

No technical specs nor supplemental details have yet been released, but we'll keep you posted.

BBC has set a $28.99 list price for the next-gen versions of 'Galapagos.'

We've added new listings for the title to both our Blu-ray Release Schedule and our HD DVD Release Schedule under October 2, where it joins 'A Room with a View,' which BBC announced for high-def release just yesterday.

We've also set up dedicated threads for BBC's latest in our Forums area -- click the following links to discuss the 'Galapagos' Blu-ray release and the 'Galapagos' HD DVD release.
