Product Description

ABOVE YELLOWSTONE is the first-ever aerial tour of Yellowstone National Park. It begins a 2-year run on PBS stations in June 2011. The purposes of the 40-minute film are to reveal Yellowstone as never seen before (virtually all of the park from the air), to celebrate its natural wonders, and to provide a brief contextual history of its geology, Native Peoples, wildlife, and current status as a destination for 3.6 million visitors annually. The film is a celebration of Yellowstone and acknowledges the vital work done by NPS. Shot in High Definition during two days of flying in a helicopter in October 2010, the film has an original score and will be closed-captioned. A few of the segments are: The Lamar Valley, The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, Forest Fire, The Geyser Basins, and parts of Yellowstone as seen during the flight of a Bald Eagle. ABOVE YELLOWSTONE also has a series of maps which are helpful in contemplating or planning a trip

Review

Fabulous, majestic, memorable, beautiful, inspiring, holds attention, the historic pictures are wonderful, editing's terrific, the writing's inspiring and the whole thing's brilliantly-paced. Twenty thumbs-up. You have done an important American icon a huge service, and you have stood on the shoulders of many others who have stewarded and cared for this great treasure, and have then added new dimension and perspective. I think your work will be of great interest to many. --Yellowstone National Park Ranger

As someone who has lived and worked in Yellowstone National Park and who is familiar with the landscape, it was wonderful to see a new, magical Yellowstone from above. To see favorite places--such as Lamar Valley, Mt. Washburn, Norris Geyser Basin--through the vantage point that usually only an eagle soaring overhead is able to enjoy, made watching this film an amazing experience. I'm never look at Yellowstone the same way again! --Yellowstone Scholar

It's looking stunning. Nice work. Some of these shots look like Monet paintings. --Bozeman, MT Resident

I've been waiting for a video like this for a long time. I have about a dozen Yellowstone videos of varying quality, but even the best are for the most part limited to scenery along the Grand Loop, with perhaps a few aerial shots of the canyon. "Above Yellowstone" definitely goes beyond the roadside attractions, with beautiful video of both main sights and the backcountry.

Unfortunately, the segments are not well-organized, jumping from one area of the park to another. I've been to Yellowstone a number of times and yet it was not always easy to follow the progression. My disappointment was not with the quality of the video, or even the amount of coverage (although I'd have loved for it to be twice as long!), just with the fact that the segments were not arranged geographically, which would have seemed to be a logical and straightforward thing to do.

There was also a montage (perhaps five minutes?) at the beginning which seemed to be compiled from random clips of footage - again, beautiful but difficult to follow. Unlike most of the video, this montage was not captioned or narrated, and therefore difficult to identify.

Definitely worth having, but doesn't quite live up to its potential.

Above Yellowstone

This video gives not only an arial view of the Yellowstone we know- it also visits less celebrated parts of the region of the park, especially areas with limited access. It's a good companion to the standard Yellowstone tourism video. Worth the purchase, especially for the enthusiast.

The photography is glorious, and occasionally I feel as though I'm in the helicopter riding along the river or down the mountain. I enjoy the narration, as well as the history. My only wish is that it were longer. Surely there's more of Yellowstone to see, especially from helicopter.

Wonderful DVD with shots from the air that one cannot see driving through the park. We thoroughly enjoyed watching this after we had spent 4 days in the park.

This video was taken from the air space above Yellowstone National Park and provides some great views. This video shows areas of the park from a different perspective that one would not see from the ground level. The video was very interesting and informative.

I was really hoping I might catch a glimpse of a certain top-secret geyser basin in this video. If you are hoping for a peek at FGB, look somewhere else. If you are hoping to scout some awesome backcountry adventure terrain for your next big expedition, look somewhere else. This DVD features the front country, mostly stuff you can see from your car, just from above. On the other hand, if you just want a relaxing visual feast of Yellowstone, it is nice for that.

I got this for my wife's birthday, because she is a Yellowstone FANATIC. And it is awesome to see the park from the air, but something is missing. While it has quite a few geyser basins that they show eruptions from the air, which is a very unique perspective to see the park from, there isn't any footage of the Norris Geyser Basin: My wife's absolute favorite of all the geyser basins. So that was sad to see the end of the video and no Steamboat Geyser or Porkchop or any of the other geysers, but I'm not going to knock it too hard, because if it DID have a segment on the Norris Geyser Basin, this movie, of all the videos on Yellowstone would be a very strong 5 star movie. So if you don't need that portion of Yellowstone to be represented in order to garner your approval, then this is most certainly a 5 star movie for you…So long as you like Yellowstone, that is.
