Editorial Reviews

Take to the skies for a birds-eye view of how this vast and complex country actually works. Stunning aerial footage, high-definition video and real-time satellite data reveal the American landscape as youve never seen it before, and host Yul Kwon climbs, leaps, and rides across the U.S. to find out what makes this nation tick. This is a celebration of a nation in the 21st century.

After watching the preview of this show America Revealed, I jumped on my computer immediately to order the DVD on Amazon. This show is not only visually entertaining with stunning aerial photography, it is also educational with facts and statistics about how America works. Some of the information might not be "new" but it has been organized and explained in a way that can help us see this country and its infrastructure. I love the fact that the producer has chosen Yul Kwon (2006 winner of the hit reality TV show Survivor), a Korean-American (who is also an eloquent speaker) to be the host of this show.

I highly recommend this show to ages of all level. It will help paint a bigger picture of how America works and what we can do to make it a better place for everyone. For more information, visit the show's website:

I am only in the middle of the first disc right now, but I was compelled to write thie review informationally. I stumbled across this title as a recommendation for me, since I had purchased BBC nature documentaries, such as "Planet Earth." I have tried to find titles that showcase the beauty of America, but haven't really been successful. This series by PBS, although quite solid, does not do that, either. I say that not as a criticism of the show, because that is not its purpose, but merely to inform people prior to their purchase. It is a "typical" PBS show with a host that walks you through various topics, often with mini-interviews with other people. For example, in the first part of the show, he spent a few minutes talking with a farmer and a few minutes talking with a director of a dam in California and so on. If you've ever seen a PBS science show, that will give you an idea of what you'll be getting. What it is not, again, is a high-def view of American scenery. The first show, for example, is a discussion on food in America, how we produce it, how we ship it, and so on. There are some neat visuals -- for example, they put a GPS on a Domino's pizza delivery bike in downtown New York City and then show all the places he biked to on a Friday night -- but it wasn't groundbreaking or stunning. Again, this is not to say that this is a "bad" show -- clearly, I think it's solid because I gave it four stars. It's just not necessarily what I was looking for and, since there wasn't a lot of product info and it's not a well-known series like the BBC stuff, I wanted to make sure people knew what they were getting.

One additional quick note, regarding the series. Based on the first show on food, it is fairly informative without being opinionated.

I cannot recommend this DVD enough. The photography is sensational. Climbing to the top of a wind turbine - you have no idea how very high those turbines are until you see this. ALL of the photography is first-rate. The 2 DVDs move along at a fast pace and covers 4 individual subjects. Yul Kwon is so likable, I could watch him all day! He is fun and enjoyable to watch but not stupid like so many things are today. It is fascinating and enjoyable at the same time.

This DVD covers 4 areas: Food, Energy, Transportation, and Manufacturing. My personal favorite was the Transportation.

I highly recommend this for all ages from the very young to the very old. I hope to see Yul Kwon in many more things. Do buy this. You will not be disappointed.

This is a great and really well made program that I first watched through PBS. Yul does a great job at breaking down the huge topics in a really interesting fashion. It reminds me of when I was a kid and we had great educational tv shows that there really isn't enough of these days.

The first time I tuned into this show on PBS I had no preconception re: what to expect. Throughout that first experience I was mesmerized, which is why I have subsequently bought the series. I want to take in the remarkable depth presented at its full, which I know will require multiple viewings. That is no problem, as I find the material and presentation to be just as riveting each time. A particular aspect of it all I especially appreciate is the very even-handed presentation of the material. There is no agenda being pushed here. This is the situation being told as it is, with the viewer free to interpret the facts and draw their own conclusions. In a world of minuscule sound bites, sensationalized "journalism" and fabricated "facts" this is a refreshing approach, indeed.
The visuals are great; the narration is better. The host / director does a marvelous job of engaging with people and culture while informing us all.
I will be encouraging my parents, children, and friends to partake.

This is a great series, I highly recommend it. The cinematography is really good. It is easy to watch and very informative, even my 4 year old likes watching it. It would be great for school projects or anyone interested in transport, energy, food and manufacturing. The interviews are good too.
