The first disk simply called Over America has wonderful photography taken from a helicopter flying over various parts of the United States. Sections of New England, New York City, Florida, Texas, California, and the Pacific Northwest take up most of the disk. My state, Virginia, is only shown where the flight cruised down the Potomac River and flew over Great Falls, Virginia, on the way to Washington, D.C. It is great to see some of the monuments of Washington, D. C. from the sky. That was enjoyable, but the South was pretty much ignored in most of the series. In defense of the project, I know that every state could not be covered.
The second disk is San Francisco where the city is introduced as the most liberal town in the United States. This is more like a city tour where you walk around with a guide who does street interviews and gives you local history. The guide covered many parts of the city where various ethnic areas are visited including Chinatown, Haight Ashbury, and North Beach. A trip to the old prison, Alcatraz, is also interesting and lots of wonderful scenery with huge redwood trees are shown in all their glory.
The third disk is Washington, D. C. Having worked in D. C. for a number of years and living within a short distance away, I know this area the best. The Capitol, White House, Jefferson and Lincoln monuments are all showcased, as is the Library of Congress. I think most Americans would find it very interesting.
The fourth and last disk is New York City. Again, very enjoyable, with two different guides giving their personal tours and visits of the city.Read more ›
