Most programs include bonus footage not seen on public television.

Format: DVD
I own almost all of these WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING PANORAMA FILMS of Europe. Now they come as a set with newly released DVDs included that don't seem (as yet) to be available separately. "Visions of Austria" and "Visions of the Great Cities of Europe" are new additions to the formerly available "Visions of Series."

All of the DVDs contain the same fantastic helicopter HD filming that has made them the travelogue, documentary, or scenic film footage that everyone else strives for. The pictures are dynamic, striking, exhilarating, and wonderfully relaxing at the same time.

I have visited all but 2 of the countries available in this set and can honestly say that you get a more complete view of the countries from these DVDs than you do from the ground, even in person. One can even zoom in using the remote for a closer look, often unnecessary. The helicopter cameraman zooms aplenty, and pans when that best suits. The footage cannot be given negative notation of any kind.

Each DVD comes with a feature presentation, complete with background music of the country. The music is as good as the camera work. It is always a mix of classical to folk, soothing to danceable, some instrumental, some vocal. All fine.

Each DVDs feature is narrated by someone with the beautiful accent of the country. The historical, and educational information related as you watch the country pass beneath your view is good enough for any classroom, elementary through college. So the set becomes not just an enjoyable travel documentation but also a fine additional of any European educational experience. You will see and learn of the ancient to the ultra-modern aspects of each country, and many major cities. Even some quaint out-of-the-way places.

The content, editing and photography of the Visions of Europe series are unbelievable! What a terrific way to take an "armchair vacation!" Just turn off the PC, turn down the lights, and enjoy the sights, along with narration and music. They are not only informative, but educational - in a thoroughly enjoyable way. My husband and I will recommend them to everyone we know. Thank you, Amazon, for making these available.Visions of Europe

This is a first rate panoramic view of the most dazzling sights of Europe taken from a vantage point that cannot be seen in your ordinary travels. These DVDs use the finest of photographic visuals to capture the both the oft visited and some rarely seen sights and visits of Europe. If you have seen these episodes over the years on PBS then you know the quality of the videos. This is a top notch production that you will play over and over.

All the helicopter panoramic footages are simply priceless. You can have to be REAL rich to be able to fly over the entire Europe like that! This is an extremely high qaulity set. I first saw it on a KQED fund raising drive, and the price you can get it now is simply a bargain.

Beautiful pictures and at least it is my opinion that seeing things from the air vs. on the ground gives one more perspective. For whatever reason in the Italian series I was unable to view the Visions of Northern Italy part on my DVD. I even returned the whole series and got a new edition and the same thing happened. Every other disc worked except this one in both series, and I can think of no explanation. Just an aside. My only complaint is that I wished that the Visions of Europe covered more countries such as Belgium, Luxembourg, Hungary, Croatia, Slovenia, etc. Hopefully, in the future the producers of this series will widen their horizons.

I have been to Warsaw and Vienna, watching these DVDs makes me want to explore more of the continent. Enjoyable to watch, especially like the native narration.

Really enjoyed the series on PBS, so I originally purchased Visions of Germany on DVD. Upgraded to the full Blu-ray set when I got a Playstation 3. The visuals are great and the soundtrack is, typically, pretty good. The nice thing about the Blu-ray set is the option for music only (no narration) and the bonus visuals.

These are my favorite travel videos, and I'm glad they finally came out in Blu-Ray. The videography is stunning, and the accompanying music is beautiful. And the narration is just right - too often, travel video narrators are oberbearing.
