5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful DVD Set ( Full Listing ) September 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
This DVD set is simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G ! If, like me, you enjoy watching documentaries about other Countries/Cities/cultures then you really need to add this Set to your collection, trust me you won't be disappointed. This is a 6 Disc Set for a total of 14 hours of interesting documentaries. Everything about these documentaries is great: The footages are amazing, the narrator is great and the music is just perfect. Don't listen to people who claims the quality of the footage is not great, I think they need to buy a better TV ( or glasses ). The documentaries covers so many different cities/countries/subjects, it's really impressive. Disc 2 is about the wildlife, while disc 5 is a series of documentaries about mysterious places/the Paranormal, it shows how so many different subjects are covered in this set. This might be the best DVD set ever released by Questar, I highly recommend this set to anybody.

Here is the impressing listing for this DVD set, with the time for each segment. Enjoy ! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Must See Places of the World is Great! August 3, 2010
By R.S.
This DVD set, Must See Places of the World is really worth watching. The photography
is first rate and spectacular, and the narration and music is exellemt. I cannot understand the problem that T.N. of Maryland has with the video quality. Possibly he has a bad TV or more likely he needs an eye examination--maybe new glasses or glasses period. I would highly recommend this DVD set from Reader's Digest and Questar.

This set of DVDs cover different areas of the world. I will summarize disk 5: Mysteries of the Ancient World, which includes the story of King Arthur and Camelot as well as Stonehenge, two stories which interest me. I recommend two DVD sets for further information on the legend of King Arthur: "King Arthur's Britain" by Francis Pryor on Acorn Media and "In Search of Myths and Heroes" by Michael Wood on PBS Home Video. For Stonehenge, I recommend "Stonehenge Decoded: A Lost City Revealed" by National Geographic and "Secrets of Stonehenge" by NOVA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful photography & naration September 5, 2012
By LouB213
I was thoroughly impressed with the beauty of the photography. It took over a year of travel to make this and more to narrate and produce. It's well worth the money.

Nice photography and history and/or cultural insights. Can be nice for learning a bit more or just for having on screen during a social event.

3.0 out of 5 stars lots of evolution January 5, 2014
Verified Purchase
A few of these DVD's are wonderful. Journey of a life time is a great way to visit places not seen in person. The filming is great. But most of the other DVD's talk about how old things are ie millions and billions of years. it works well for our family because we talk about the falsehood of the "theory" of evolution. but if you are a Christian and believe the Bible you will be correcting the talks as you watch this with your children.
