Editorial Reviews

Embark on an unforgettable journey all over the globe through in this spectacular guided tour to the world's most marvelous sights and places. Capturing the nature and culture of these exotic destinations, this lusciously filmed documentary series offers a vivid and entertaining portrait of the history and significance of distance cities and countries. Shot in dazzling high definition, prepare to be whisked away to one thrilling attraction after another across our most Beautiful Planet.

Santiago de Compostela is the capital of the autonomous community of Galicia, Spain and the city's Cathedral is the destination today, as it has been throughout history, of the important 9th century medieval pilgrimage route, the Way of St. James. Seville, capital of Andalusia is the artistic, historic, cultural, and financial capital of southern Spain which is also home to the Alc'zar royal palace which is one of the best remaining examples of Mud'jar architecture. Oporto, the second largest city of Portugal, situated on the bank of the Douro Oporto harbor provides insight into the diversity of its cultural and scientific sites in addition to the city's most popular export, port wine. The first Portugal capital city, Guimar'es, nicknamed the Cradle of the Nation is historically associated with the foundation and identity of the Portuguese nationality.

When you see the words "Beautiful Planet" - they evoke images that we've stored in our memory of the beauty reflected in the unique topography of the planet we all inhabit - and that we call planet earth. Whether it's a beautiful photo rendered in a magazine, or a high definition 1080p television picture from a documentary series like the BBC'sPlanet Earth: The Complete BBC Series [Blu-ray], the images touch us in a unique way, and stir our emotions. The only emotions that "Beautiful Planet - Spain & Portugal" Blu-ray stirred within me - made me want to turn it off. I was indifferent and bored.

Perhaps those of us who have seen a David Attenborough narrated BBC documentary have been spoiled (Life (David Attenborough-Narrated Version) [Blu-ray]). The production values that we appreciate in the Beeb's HD blu-ray offerings are completely absent here. While the camera work is a little more interesting and varied compared to "Blue Planet - France & Italy," the films failed to capture the stunning views and vistas that any visitor to either country knows, is waiting just around the corner.

The Spanish film smartly starts in Barcelona, but fails to reflect the vibrant and beautiful nature of the people, the food, and the incredibly unique architecture found throughout the city. The Portugal film starts in the northern city of Guimarães, which is historically important in the country's history. Because of the below par production values, and very average images, you will find yourself wondering why anyone would want to visit such a sleepy place. (If you get a chance to visit Guimarães go!

1.0 out of 5 stars One Word: BORING July 9, 2012
By Min

I wish I could give this -1 Star. This is one of most boring travel videos I have ever seen. I've heard good things about Spain from family, friends and co-workers but this video does NO justice to Spain and Portugal.

-If you're expecting anything like Rudy Maxa or Rick Steves, forget it.
-This is NOT HD. Looks like a converted VHS to DVD and then to Blu Ray...bad quality!!!
-The host is soooooo Boring!
-Mainly about architecture...nothing else.
-Waste of time. I could of slept those wasted time!

Thank goodness I didn't pay $15-20 for this junk!

The music that played during the narrator's speech was horrible and distracting. It sounded low budget. The voice of the narrator was boring making this video a chore to even listen let alone watch. The same result for the other ones from this line of Blurays.

1.0 out of 5 stars A complete let down December 17, 2012
While I did not purchase this Blu Ray here on Amazon I did purchase it today at Target for $7.50. I must say this was the biggest let down ever. The images on the front and back of the case invoke a feeling of warmth, and excitement ; the same one would expect and surely would end up finding in the Life documentary as well as the Planet Earth documentaries. This documentary on the other hand made me feel like I was back in 7th grade classes taking lecture notes. The narration completely lacks enthusiasm and seems to drag on and on forever with boring facts.

Now I have never written a review in my life, for amazon, nor any site. Nor have I ever filled a survey out. The only reason I am writing this review is to let others know that it is just THAT bad. I wouldn't have paid .25 cents for it. Save your money!

This travel documentary was badly filmed and badly written. Special ed high school students could have done better. If I was not living overseas and having this stuff forwarded by relatives I would return it.
