REVIEW: VIDEO LIBRARIAN - The three DVDs, filmed in wide-screen digital high-definition (HD) Dolby stereo, are filled with rich color and excellent cinematography against a background of traditional Irish music and soft, unobtrusive narration... Narrated by Irish voice-over artist Arthur Riordan, and very nicely filmed by Jim and Kelly Watt, this absolutely gorgeous-looking DVD, and its companion volumes A Mystical Journey and A Celtic Treasure, are highly recommended and will be a boon to patrons starving for new travel programs.
REVIEW: BOOK READER - Beautifully shot, the colors, the people, the tales resonate with brilliant images, skillfully presenting an Ireland flushed with modern success but still carrying the scars of age-old poverty and the pride of a special historic grandeur.
