In celebration of Earth Day the BBC is offering a free download of episode 1 of the Planet Earth series in HD on iTunes. Titled “From Pole to Pole,” the episode presents some of the greatest mass migrations on the planet and focuses on the dependence of both animals and plants on sun and water. The download is apparently only available until Monday, April 26 so get on it quick. Here is the download link which should automatically open iTunes. (Be patient, the 1.43 GB download takes a while.) NOTE: The freebie has expired.
