Is the audio track the only difference? There's no variations in actual footage?
I can't speak for "Life" (I haven't been watching), but I am fairly certain that "Planet Earth" was re-cut as well as re-narrated. So I suspect there are some slight differences between the BBC and Discovery versions.
As for the narration issue, offering two different DVD sets allows for each company to sell and make money off of them. The BBC wants you to buy their version, whereas Discovery wants you to buy their version, instead. It's always about money.
