Atlas 4D 1 Great Rift Valley Long: Atlas 4D explores East Africa's Great Rift Valley. Stretching through thirty five hundred miles of East Africa, from Ethiopia to Mozambique, the Great Rift forms the world's largest system of geological faults. The Rift Valley is so vast it can be seen from space. From its beginnings 35 million years ago, the Great Rift Valley transformed the landscape. And this geological upheaval made some of the iconic East African wildlife what it is today. Atlas 4D travels through time to reveal surprising connections. How flamingos are pink because they live in the strange, volcanic lakes created by the Rift. How a variety of fish species were forced to evolve odd eating habits because of changes in the ancient 'Great Lakes'. And when the Great Rift formed, how it created the huge Serengeti plains, which hosts one of nature's most impressive spectacles - The Great Migration.
Atlas 4D will take you back through time to witness the evolution of another species - us. Human beings evolved because changes in climate and landscape here forced our distant ancestors to get down from the trees and walk upright on two legs.
Fast forward to the present day and the connection of landscape to the people becomes clearer: Nomadic Tribes such as the Massai; the tough Afar people who mine one of the Rift's treasures; the Hadza who hunt and gather their food daily. Even Nairobi's city dwellers rely on the volcanic forces that created the Rift in the first place. But ultimately, this will be a tale of destruction, because the Rift Valley will one day reach a cataclysmic conclusion...

2 Hawaii
From blind spiders to the active volcanoes, this iconic island chain has manry stories.

Long: Atlas 4D examines the islands of Hawaii, magical places steeped in mystery. Discover why they exist, how they affect a huge slice of the globe, and why the surf is always up. From blind spiders to the active volcanoes, Hawaii and her sisters tell a multitude of ascinating stories, each revealing a little more about this iconic island chain.

3 Mysteries of the Mediterranean Long: Atlas 4D reveals the Mediterranean Sea as never before. A unique journey through time to discover how this place gave birth to great ancient empires… the earliest agriculture… and three of the world's great religions. A fascinating and entertaining story of connections between geology, nature and humankind, brought to life with stunning HD photography.

The first three episodes were incredibly educational and very well done. On the fourth episode they decided to change the format to "action and adventure with Olly Steed". Very quickly changed my reaction from "fantastic!" to "can't stand another minute".

NOT an atlas. Rather a collection of places and things that happened there. This is basically a travelogue having little, if anything, to do with maps and/or mapping. Interesting, but not what I expected. Stories about three locations, The great rift valley of Africa and its history, a history of Hawaii, and a story about mans interaction and growth in the Mediterranean. The fact I found most interesting waws that when the dam between Gibralter and Africa broke, it took the Atlantic ocean 4,000 years to fill the Mediterranean basin. That's a LOT of water! There is much else you may find interesting. Probably not of a lot of interest to the pre-teen group (probably pretty enough to keep their attention though), but your teenagers might really like it.

One of the most informative documentaries I have seen in a long time. The narrative kept me very interested and the photography was astonishing. If I am not mistaken one of the chapters showed briefly how the fleet of the Pacific was sank by a hurricane or a typhoon near the Philippines during World War II. Mmm, I thought the Japanese had sunken it first at Pearl Harbor. Maybe the documentary described an event that happened to another Pacific Fleet or at another time or maybe the Fleet had already been rebuilt at the Hunters Point Shipyard in San Francisco. Anyhow I enjoyed the collection very much from start to end and in the process ran across some interesting History contradictions.

What a beautiful narrative and story of three unique places on earth. This is one of my favorite dvds on my shelf, the scenery will leave you in awe. It's not a bluray but the video quality is excellent, don't hesitate to buy it for the quality. My favorite is the story of Hawaii, it's birth, it's beauty and history, and the eventual slow death of the islands, what a story! Hey, it's just a little over $5, what's not to like?
