Editorial Reviews

Take to the skies for a bird s-eye view of how this vast and complex country actually works. Stunning aerial footage, high-definition video and real-time satellite data reveal the American landscape as you ve never seen it before, and host Yul Kwon climbs, leaps, and rides across the U.S. to find out what makes this nation tick. This is a celebration of a nation in the 21st century.

After watching the preview of this show America Revealed, I jumped on my computer immediately to order the DVD on Amazon. This show is not only visually entertaining with stunning aerial photography, it is also educational with facts and statistics about how America works. Some of the information might not be "new" but it has been organized and explained in a way that can help us see this country and its infrastructure. I love the fact that the producer has chosen Yul Kwon (2006 winner of the hit reality TV show Survivor), a Korean-American (who is also an eloquent speaker) to be the host of this show.

I highly recommend this show to ages of all level. It will help paint a bigger picture of how America works and what we can do to make it a better place for everyone. For more information, visit the show's website:

I am only in the middle of the first disc right now, but I was compelled to write thie review informationally. I stumbled across this title as a recommendation for me, since I had purchased BBC nature documentaries, such as "Planet Earth." I have tried to find titles that showcase the beauty of America, but haven't really been successful. This series by PBS, although quite solid, does not do that, either. I say that not as a criticism of the show, because that is not its purpose, but merely to inform people prior to their purchase. It is a "typical" PBS show with a host that walks you through various topics, often with mini-interviews with other people. For example, in the first part of the show, he spent a few minutes talking with a farmer and a few minutes talking with a director of a dam in California and so on. If you've ever seen a PBS science show, that will give you an idea of what you'll be getting. What it is not, again, is a high-def view of American scenery. The first show, for example, is a discussion on food in America, how we produce it, how we ship it, and so on. There are some neat visuals -- for example, they put a GPS on a Domino's pizza delivery bike in downtown New York City and then show all the places he biked to on a Friday night -- but it wasn't groundbreaking or stunning. Again, this is not to say that this is a "bad" show -- clearly, I think it's solid because I gave it four stars. It's just not necessarily what I was looking for and, since there wasn't a lot of product info and it's not a well-known series like the BBC stuff, I wanted to make sure people knew what they were getting.

One additional quick note, regarding the series. Based on the first show on food, it is fairly informative without being opinionated.

This is a great and really well made program that I first watched through PBS. Yul does a great job at breaking down the huge topics in a really interesting fashion. It reminds me of when I was a kid and we had great educational tv shows that there really isn't enough of these days.

I cannot recommend this DVD enough. The photography is sensational. Climbing to the top of a wind turbine - you have no idea how very high those turbines are until you see this. ALL of the photography is first-rate. The 2 DVDs move along at a fast pace and covers 4 individual subjects. Yul Kwon is so likable, I could watch him all day! He is fun and enjoyable to watch but not stupid like so many things are today. It is fascinating and enjoyable at the same time.

This DVD covers 4 areas: Food, Energy, Transportation, and Manufacturing. My personal favorite was the Transportation.

I highly recommend this for all ages from the very young to the very old. I hope to see Yul Kwon in many more things. Do buy this. You will not be disappointed.

Format: DVD
This is a very educational DVD, some four hours of full facts and knowledge which reveals where you get your tomatoes to how cows are fed and become packaged beef to how energy is produced and how it gets everything transported in US. This documentary is about systems and networks that move us, feed us and make our economy hum and how we put together the materials and manpower that keeps the incredibly vast and complex America with over three hundred million people working, day after day.

A century ago a third of us worked and lived on farms, now it is barely two percent. For the first time in human history, just 2% of the population can feed the other 98%. Human element is becoming less and less of factor but other parts of the equation have not and infact are becoming more of a real serious issues than ever before from water to environment. Looking at the societal value of producing food only by gallons of water used may be silly, if not absurd but it is becoming a reality in deserts of CA when CA is using 80% of their water for agriculture in a state with no water. Growers calculate that it takes about 168 gallons of water to produce a single watermelon, 50 gallons for a cantaloupe, 10 gallons for a single almond, 35 gallons for a head of broccoli, roughly 40 gallons for a single ear of corn and only 1 gallons of water for a single almond.
