I felt it necessary to write a review because the one review (literally, one single review) that was left for this item only gave it 3 stars, merely because there was no Blu-Ray option for this collection. Don't get me wrong: if there had been a Blu-Ray option available, that is the direction I might have gone, but the one reviewer did not discuss the content or the actual quality of this specific collection.

Anyway: overall I was very pleased with the collection. There isn't a theme to the collection, other than being a sampling of National Geographic documentaries from over the decades, starting with the first ever National Geographic broadcast, "Americans on Everest". For me, a few of these documentaries took me back because the opening music/credits reminded me of watching some of these documentaries as part of school curriculum, or with my grandparents when we would all gather around the television when a "National Geographic Special" was going to air (FYI: this was before cable).

The DVD quality is excellent but some of the older broadcasts (due to the quality/deterioration of the original film) do look their age, most noticeable in the "Americans on Everest" and "Holland Against the Sea", but the overall transfer to DVD was good. The newer broadcasts (and documentaries from the National Geographic cable channel) are of excellent quality; the quality is merely a testimony to time and newer digital technology.

In terms of "bang for your buck" there are over 20 documentaries in this collection and there is something here to please everyone. Granted there will be some you like more than others (the Egyptian documentaries were my personal favorite but I enjoyed everything in the collection) but overall a great DVD collection.

The best of Nat Geo documentaries. Would also recomend the 125 years of National Geographic Magazine set for those who love the magazine - every issue since 1888.
