>> BBC Planet Earth Explorer
Confession time: I’ve yet to see BBC 1’s Planet Earth on Sunday nights (and golly it looks like I’m missing some top-notch telly). The good news for me, and other people who don’t find themselves near the telly at the right time, is that there’s a fabulous interactive video player on the programme’s official site. The Planet Earth explorer lets you zoom in on a spinning planet to select “hot-spots” and load video clips from the programme. You can also save your favourite clips, view them full-screen and email them to friends.
NB: You’ll need a broadband connection and a new-ish computer to run the Planet Explorer, but many of the video clips can also be viewed separately on a dial-up connection.
