5.0 out of 5 stars Great Documentary September 23, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This documentary is very good! Although some docs on the same topics seem to drag on and on, this one is very interesting and never boring. I watch a lot of documentaries and this one ranks in my top 5 along with Savage Planet, Savage Seas, and Planet Earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars great set November 25, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw this series on tv some years back and was delighted to find it on DVD. Yes it is "education" but it's education entertianment. The scenes keep you glued as it mixes current events, with the scientific background of what goes on... of things like volcanoes, tidal waves, and such. Especially good for somebody interested in geology, as I am.

2.0 out of 5 stars PBS caves in to RealTV February 25, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This series is a huge disappointment, in comparison with the fine nature programming I grew up with on public television. The scientific content here is low, and thus the educational value is poor. Instead, we are treated to disaster porn--stitched-together footage of calamaties and their aftermaths, plus alleged "human interest" stories as shameless as anything on the six o'clock news. Insultingly voyeuristic, if that's possible for Americans these days.
