3.0 out of 5 stars Over some of Alaska January 4, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This disk is good as far as it goes, which isn't very far. Although frequently visited areas are covered, the whole north of Alaska is not covered so you don't see any polar bears. There are many ground-level shots in what is supposed to be an "above" disk. I've been there and the essence of a lot of places, especially towns, just isn't captured. On the other hand the mountain shots are majestic and look great in blu-ray.

5.0 out of 5 stars marvelous January 24, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the greatest documentaries I have ever seen: fantastic views of the mountains, very interesting and useful information told by a pleasant voice of the narrator and what I found really helpful was the location of Alaskan national parks and towns on maps.

4.0 out of 5 stars Over Alaska August 7, 2008
Format:Blu-ray
Great product for a relatively low price. Over Alaska shows footage of many of the state's attractions. Might not have the greatest narration or presentation, but it looks beautiful. Recommended for nature fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Alaska December 1, 2008
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I bought this video to try out my new Blu-Ray player and I was not disappointed. This 1 hour video is broken down into several segments that showcase Alaska in splendid beauty you'd expect. If you love Alaska and what it has to offer, this DVD is a must see. And for the low price, its a win/win situation!

Photography was GREAT. It covered a small segment on Denali, but mostly Anchorage and
and South East Alaska. Well worth the money! Beautiful!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for fluff, but not very educational December 20, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
This is another show from PBS's "Over" series, which includes Over America, Over California, Over British Columbia, Over Ireland, etc. I call these "armchair tourist" DVD's because they're sort of virtual vacations instead of the proper educational/journalistic programing that PBS is better known for. They feel like a tourism board film, or one of those video you see at a museum exhibition (or a "video essay", as the box of Over America puts it). Light on historical, geological or other scientific info, the educational value here is minimal. Don't expect a documentary, but do expect some excellent aerial photography of Alaska's iconic geography and wildlife.

Buy it for the visuals instead of the narration. The narrator's voice is pleasant enough, although very ordinary, monotone, and uncaptivating. Missing is northern Alaska. The program starts in Denali National Park, already halfway down in central Alaska, jumps down to Anchorage, then and winds its way southwest to Juneau, meandering between different subject matters. You'll also find quite a bit of cornball fluff writing. For the bush pilots segment, "On a clear day in Alaska, the routes are all the same -- somewhere just south of heaven." Describing their derring-do ability to land practically anywhere, he says "the wings of their planes are connected directly to the seat of their pants". Later, about trains that go through mountain passes and tunnels, he says "it's living proof in Alaska that men can move mountains.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Alaska Scenery December 25, 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I bought this blu-ray disc in order to test out my new Panasonic 58" Viera HDTV and was not disappointed. The opening scenes alone justified my hdtv purchase, with the most eye-popping green color of close up vegetation that I have ever seen. When I have friends and family over for a visit I always pop this in my blu-ray player for a demo. I also have been using this disc on mute as a stunning background when I am relaxing in my den. I have been to Alaska only once, but this is a definite motivator to return to visit as soon as possible. I plan to get other discs in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alaska in my Living Room October 18, 2008
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
THis is Great. If you ever wanted to tour the Great state of Alaska or take an Alaskin tour, you will love this one. You can watch it many times in High Definition Quality. If you want to hear Music instead, that will work well with company. I have the Whole set and love it.

Boring. We should have knows that whenever it is OVER an area, you will see trees or water. The mountains were great but these over movies are great to put you to sleep.

4.0 out of 5 stars OVER ALASKA
OVER ALASKA IS AN INTERESTING BOOK. However, one reviewer said they did not show any Polar Bears. The reason they did not show Polar Bears is there are NO POLAR BEARS IN ALASKA. Read more
