Product Description

Inspired by the best-selling book and exhibition that drew over 60 million people, Earth From Above, is a magical tour of the world's most beautiful natural landscapes shot in dazzling High Definition. Hosted by world-famous photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, this program features some of the most stunning aerial photography ever attempted. From the Earth's deepest oceans to its staggering mountain heights...from the wild African savannah to the frozen wonderland of Antarctica...take an unforgettable and breathtaking journey as you discover the beauty of the planet's astonishing landscapes and extraordinary people.

Stunning Water - More than 70% of the Earth's surface is covered by ocean, yet this biggest natural habitat on the planet remains almost entirely unexplored. This program reveals the mysteries and richness of the unseen seas, from silent, dark depths to the tumultuous, forbidding coasts. This portrait of Earth reveals the splendors of the ocean, its fundamental role in the cycle of life, and also the dangers that threaten it, as well as profiling the people fighting to save it. Discover fresh water in all its amazing forms, including glaciers, waterfalls, deltas and rivers. Travel from the African continent to the American Southwest to see how water is used and why it is so important to preserve this resource.

I like Yann Arthus-Bertrand's photography and own several of his books -- including Earth From Above -- which is why I was excited when this film was released. However, Yann needs to stay behind the camera. This film is technically inaccurate on many levels and horribly slanted. Yes, documentaries generally have an agenda, so there is an inherent bias. However, one cannot compare what is happening with the Colorado River and what happened to the Aral Sea. Yes, there are problems with the way the United States wastes water, but it has nothing to do with the water shortages in the Middle East and Africa. The problem with the Colorado River water sharing agreement between the seven western states in the United States is that the allocations were made during years of unusually high rain levels, so that when rain levels drop to normal or below normal, more water is being removed than is being put into the basin. Yann never explains this phenomenon. Likely, neither he nor anyone else on this project bothered to study western water policy in the United States. With regard to Jordan, Israel, the Dead Sea, etc. They are in a desert. They're simply cursed by geography. Trying to mix these situations and preach to the masses about wasteful are our water practices is a pathetic attempt at environmental consciousness. Misinformation like this doesn't help any of us who care about the environment or are involved in environmental policy. It hurts only hurts the cause.

I love Planet Earth and all the BBC nature shows on Blu-Ray but this one is in a league of its own. Really bad. You're better off getting any other program even if you see this one really cheap. The endless interviews are boring beyond belief. The HD nature footage is very sparse.

I thought it was a very informational documentary about how we need to conserve our water .
I think when I was in grade school we focused more on conservation than we teach our children today.
But we'll worth the money and good for a family or a single parent and their kids to sit down and watch and discuss the issues facing them in their lifetime.

Worst piece of crap i have ever bought.Yann arthus Bertrand is a self centered egotist who has no idea how to make a documentary.Very little of this program is "ABOVE EARTH".It's more about him in front of the camera.AVOID this series of disks,save your money!
