Editorial Reviews

CNN takes viewers around the world in a comprehensive 3-hour documentary that examines our changing planet. This worldwide investigation, shot in high definition, looks at four key issues: climate change, vanishing habitats, disappearing species and human population growth. To tell this story, Anderson Cooper, Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin traveled to some of the most remote and remarkable places on Earth. From exposing illegal wildlife trading undercover in Southeast Asia to seeing first–hand the devastating effects of deforestation in Brazil, they have gathered evidence on the unsettling changes taking place all around us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ineffably amazing and informative!!! October 26, 2007
By J. Lee
From the very begining, It starts with the notion that can't be negated by anyone.<For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. It's one of the fundamental laws of physics -- of nature. Nothing occurs in a vacuum in the natural world. There are ripple effects > we should bear this fact in mind when we do somthing to our planet.
this documentary reminded me that what we(mankind) did for our benefits has posed a great threat to our planet. But on seeing this, I realized we still have a grip on moderating the damages we've caused. In terms of that, i was tremendously impressed by the segements related to inserting wolves in the yellowstone park. that was one great demonstration showing me that our efforts to save our planet can make a siginificant differences !( Actually, I was toooo ignorant that one specie is capable of playing such a meaningful role in the nature!!! )
furthermore,I was so shocked that people in africa emitting the least amount of CO2 have been suffering that much from the global warming.
It is really platitude to say this but How ironic this is!!!
It makes me feel so bad about them and become conscious of what I squandered..
I personally thanked CNN for letting me
be educated germane to grave problems we are facing which need to be rectified anytime soon. I hope by buying this DVD you can learn something out of this~~~

5.0 out of 5 stars "A Masterpiece" One land. One family. One struggle. October 26, 2007
Breath-taking. Enlightening. Emotional. Touching. Pivotal. Humbling......A Masterpiece.

"Planet in Peril" erases all lines on the map. Africa is at our doorstep. China isn't so far way. Madagascar is not just a fantasy. The Amazon jungle is our forest. Greenland is in our back garden. A Breath-taking journey...

One land. One people. One family. One struggle.

The wildlife and animals on our beautiful planet are the most delicate of our creatures. They cannot speak literally, but through their beauty and sound we hear them all around us. However, day by day that universal "song" is becoming quieter. If we could no longer hear them, the silence and loneliness would break our hearts. We would be alone, and how frightening that would be.

Common sense would tell us that we would be next...

"Planet in Peril" conveys the striking contrast of the joy in perfect beauty and the sadness of perfect misery. To hear and feel the emotions as dear fellow humans, fellow family members, explain their fear, pain and sorrow over human losses that can never be compensated by anyone except God.

We should all be grateful that "Planet in Peril", took the time to document and show us the big picture of what is happening to our planet, to our home. To listen and learn. Humbly.

What we don't treasure we often lose.

"Planet in Peril" causes one to reflect upon the fact that we must wake up and realize we are the caretakers of this earth, it's our duty. Our sacred duty.

A Masterpiece...

"A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives."
Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize 1952

5.0 out of 5 stars Planet in Peril December 11, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was so taken with the program on CNN that I hoped I could then find it on DVD to give to my son-in-law for Christmas (they refuse to get cable). Thank you for making this available just in time for my Christmas gift list! It really is a good series ... highlighting the hot spots in the world and giving you a desire for more knowledge in many of the areas. How sad that we as a species are destroying what was a phenomenal gift ... all for the almighty dollar... which will have no value at all once we've destroyed all else!

Shipping was fast and the set is now all wrapped up to put under the tree ... Merry Christmas!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating! October 28, 2007
Planet In Peril is a very informational and fascinating piece to watch. You're educated about the issues facing the planet and how it all relates to you. So you might say how losing species thousands of miles away doesn't affect you or how pollution and drought in another country doesn't affect you either, this will make you look at things a little bit different. Planet In Peril will open your eyes to the issues facing us and future generations, it will compel you to act and maybe even go out and buy compact fluorescent lightbulbs. This film is a wonderful piece of information that needs to be seen by every single person on the face of the Earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars really opens ones eyes February 13, 2008
I have seen a lot of films and documentaries on these subjects but nothing can compare on the honesty, compasion of these DVD's. The information the locations gave me as well as my family chills at what we truely are doing to the planet. I recommend this to families,, great for schools, for all ages its never to late to learn and help thats what this DVD does it educates and make you aware so you can help. As it says we truely are a Planet in Peril. You won't be disappointed, I hope that there will be another set to continue to show what we have lost or what we have won in the fight to save the planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great program without sensationalism. October 23, 2007
At this very moment I am watching the first airing of this program on CNN. It is fascinating and full of interesting information. The information is detailed and yet easy to understand. It doesn't resort to using sensationalism to inform. And rather than preaching, it teaches about endangered species, pollution, climate changes, etc.
