The music and narration are also excellent.

I now own a Panasonic blu-ray 3D player and the video plays just fine and it is still gorgeous to watch and listen to as well for the stirring music accompaniment.

Really beautiful places to live and explore.

This production, which was originally shown on PBS stations, effectively portrays the beauty and grandeur of British Columbia.

I have previously purchased VHS and DVD versions of this production.

However, the program was created in HD and is significantly enhanced when viewed in HD.

For anyone who appreciates beautiful scenery, the videography of this production is as good as it gets.

The music and narration are also excellent.

Excellent production. If you can't make it to BC, this is the next best thing.
I highly recommend this video.

I was disappointed in this project. I have other "Over" travelogs, and they are quite nice, thus I bought this one.

The voice and it's dialog are irritating to listen to. Grandiose speaking in a whispery manner, giving little actual information. Frankly I was glad that there were some unvocal spots in the video.

The photography is great as usual. If I watch this again, I will do so with the sound off, and my own music playing.

The scenery and camera work on this film are great! Lots of key points of interest and beautiful scenery. Well shot. The film breaks down a specific area of British Columbia and does about 5 minutes or so on each area, showcasing mostly touristy things while mixing in some beautiful rugged mountains and rivers and other wildlife. The visuals are great. The only issue I had with it was the narration. The narrator really irritated me with his cliches and vague attempt at creating his own 'visuals' with his words. I don't need visuals with words. I'm WATCHING it. The guy also seemed like he was whispering the whole time, another irritation. Why is he whispering? The music went with the images for the most part. The video is about 40 minutes. I would say for some beautiful, inexpensive scenery, this Blu-Ray of British Columbia is great! Worth around $9. Minus one star for the irritating whispering narrator. Other than that guy, would be nice to have on with some of your own music.

We watched this and Glaciers in succession and we sat there for two hours, not believing the feast that was dished up in front of our eyes on the BIG screen. The clarity and the welcome lack of comments by park rangers and conservationists, just plain enjoyment and perfection...

This is outstanding. I've watched it several times, and the music and landscape captivates me everytime. Throughout the program my mind keeps saying "I want to be there".

We love BC, so were very happy to see it from the air. Of course, one can't be very profound or insightful in this kind of thing, but there's a good variety of places and shots.

The downside is the narration. It is so pretentious and pompous that it is laughable. Unfortunately, it dies spoil the mood set by the photography. Fortunately, the narrator only 'introduces' each new region, then shuts up. Judicious use of the mute button makes it bearable.
