Discovery Atlas: Australia Revealed
As a french living in Australia i find this movie very acute about the australian icons; everything is told about and it's not boring. It could be good to use this movie in australian schools (or in other countries) to talk the students about some parts of their country they don't know. Unfortunately the zone for this dvd is only zone 1, which is the american one, and unless you've got a multizone dvd player (like me)you can't see it. It's a pity.

Very nice, especially in BluRay. The photography is incredible, and it is very pleasureable to watch. It's just like being in and around the people and places of Australia. Must see!

It is a shame that there are people who don't bother to READ what these documentaries are about BEFORE they buy them and are disappointed.

The oft-stated aim of Discovery Atlas is not a history lesson ... it is a unique look at countries through the eyes and personal stories of a select group of individuals.

What better ways to learn the true feelings and emotions than by this manner.

Exquisitely shot, wonderfully narrated, these videos provide a unique look into each of these nations that one would not otherwise EVER be party to.

Like virtually all of the Discover Channel productions this one is excellent. I have used it in my geography classes, and shared it with the other Geography teachers in my school who also liked it. It transports the students to a place they would not otherwise see, and makes the material relevant. Better yet I even enjoyed it.

I still need to purchase the Brazil and Italy films in this series as well as the "Great Wall of China". I did purchase the China Film in this series and it is also excellent!

A different viewpoint from the touristy travelogs on the country. These Atlas Discovery DVD's are such high quality. Russell Crowe's voice is a bit on the low side and my husband had trouble hearing all of the commentary but otherwise it was a really interesting visit. Just by watching one feels they are meeting the people in the DVD personally and experiencing the culture. We hope to visit Australia someday but in the meantime this is the next best thing we can do. We highly recommend this DVD.

Fortunately, my Toshiba HD-A2 with the latest firmware 1.5 can play this disc without any problem. I really enjoy this wonderful documentary. The PQ is great except a few scenes particulary the lifeguard competition which has grainy scenes. Overall the PQ looks stunning.

The only small problem is some of the extra features can't play properly with occasional freezing. If you're not into the extras then this will be a great disc. Highly recommended!
