This is a great video and is now even better in Blu-ray. This was produced by Maryland Public Television so it covers only the Northern portion of the bay. I would have given it 5 stars had it showed more. Still worth it though.

I have been seeing this program on MPT for some time now, and I was disappointed to find that I had to make a very sizable donation in order to own the program outright. So I was extremely happy to find it here on Amazon for a good price. I just love seeing my area from the air like this. :)

The project is only half finished. The Jamestown settlement, Reedville's post-War Between the States menhaden industry, the history and cities of metro Richmond, Tidewater, and Fredericksburg, the amazing Bay Bridge Tunnel, Tangier Island, Yorktown, Stingray Point, and numerous other sites are ignored.

I grew up a few miles west of the Chesapeake and recently tried to move, only to find myself wanting to come home. This DVD captures the true beauty of the bay, and is a nice change over hearing the C and D grades the bay has been receiving. I picked up a few to send to friends so they would start to understand why I love this area so much. Great to have on mute in the background as well, a moving TV wallpaper of the bay.

Worth the money!

We bought this after seeing most of it on TV. We were impressed! After moving in the area two years ago, we have been exploring the historical sights. My family came to america on the Swan in the early Jamestown so the connection is in my mind.

Great video wish there was a part two!

We are from the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay area. Saw this on PBS and loved it! It is very well done and beautiful. I actually purchased this to show our visitors how beautiful the area is and to "sort of brag" a bit!

One of the best. This documentary film should be required viewing in all Virginia public schools. For anyone that loves and respects nature, the oceans, and the Chesapeake bay this is a MUST SEE film. Thank you PBS television.

Must Have!!! Beautiful aerial photography in my home state. Inspired me to explore many of the towns along the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. Watch the Blu-ray video on a 60" plus L E D and get ready to be blown away!!!
