Editorial Reviews

10,000 B.C. was a time of cataclysmic change on Earth. Extreme climactic fluctuations hurled the planet into a minor ice age; megafauna like the saber-toothed tiger and woolly mammoth were suddenly becoming extinct; and early humans began to inhabit North America. Cold and hungry, their fragile communities undertook perilous hunting expeditions. The slaughter of a single mammoth, weighing nearly ten tons, could be the difference between survival and death.

JOURNEY TO 10,000 B.C. brings this unique and thrilling period to life, and investigates the geologic and climate changes that scientists are just beginning to understand. In a major forensic investigation, HISTORY visits early human archaeological sites to uncover fossilized bones, ancient dwellings, and stone weapons, and uses state-of-the-art CGI to recreate the treacherous mammoth hunts and the devastating impact of a comet colliding with Earth.

As a high school history teacher, I definitely include this DVD on my "must have" list. It keeps student interest...enough said? To a teacher, I know that's gold. I have had many positive reviews from past and present students about this one. However, keep it in perspective, it is what it is: a history video. Your students won't be asking for a burned copy, but they will learn from it.

After the unfortunate popularity of Hollywood's "10,000 BC" (a movie so horrible it makes every self-respecting history teacher cringe), this is heaven-sent. It paints a much more accurate picture of the time period, while being extremely relevant.

10,000 BC (History Channel) is fast enough paced to allow students to view the whole DVD, but I would recommend showing it in clips to maximize its impact. Some of my favorite parts include their hunting tactics, ability to survive prehistoric animals, and the segment explaining several theories as to how people "settled" the North American continent.

It's worth the investment to your teaching collection.

As an archaeology student, I purchased this DVD to use as part of my research on flint knapping techinques. Aside from the sections on tool making, the rest of the DVD is informative and easy to understand. It would be a good program for high school teachers to use as an introduction to an archaeology or anthropology class.

This is a pretty good documentary about early man in america 12,000 years ago. As with any documentary dealing with pre-history
hard facts to go on are few and far between, but they do the best they can with what they have got. The theories presented are
sometimes at odds with each other, but with so little hard evidence that is to be expected.
The theories are presented without bias (well, without much bias anyway) so that you get a good picture of several veiwpoints.
If you are looking for a lot of flashy cgi animations, you will not find a lot of it in this film. And what there is tends to
be of fairly low quality. But if you are looking for information, you will find a wealth of it.
Would be excellent for use in a middle school or high school science class, or great for anyone who has an interest in pre-history.

This is an excellent DVD. It gives a broad spectrum of views about how prehistoric America was settled and would be useful in a high school Ancient History, Anthropology or for that matter, US History class. I was impressed by the fact that it gives serious consideration of the Solutrean Theory, although one scientist inexplicably seemed ignorant of the DNA research which has been done that lends strength to the theory.

I bought this movie because I bought the movie 10,000 BC ( Staring Camilla Belle, Steven Strait, and Roland Emmerich ) which is a great movie. I like to watch the theater movie along with the history of the movie being told together. I watched Journey to 10,000 BC for the first time and I very much enjoyed it.

Simply a fascinating film for those who enjoy re-enactments of events that are brought back to life via the work of archaeologists, anthropologists and other unsung heroes of history! Man vs the wild in all it's "CGI" glory :-)

Review – Journey to 10.000 BC

I was hoping – naively -- that this documentary series would be good. How humans came to North America, how they survived, and the changes they wrought, should be a good story, and should make a great subject for a prehistory documentary. Journey to 10.000 BC is a round up tour of some of the conflicting theories of how prehistoric human beings colonized this continent.
Unfortunately, it is spoiled by some of the worse science writing I have seen. It makes me wish the producers had spent a little less money on dramatic re-enactments of humans hunting Mammoths, Saber-toothed cats hunting humans, and Mammoths trampling over humans, and spent a little to hire some writers who could actually write. Producer-writer David Padrusch and writer Ian Stoker-Long apparently cannot.
As soon as I heard the first few lines, I suspected it was going to be bad. It is almost all written in the present tense (aside from an occasional slip up back into good sense). Bad documentary writers think the present tense gives their writing a sense of importance, of immediacy – they are wrong. When writing about history, especially pre-history, it is even worse. Inevitably, the reader or listener will end up confused about what thing came before what other thing. As this series rambles about back and forth in time, it is sometimes impossible to figure what came before what. The past tense, and the past perfect tense, evolved in our language so that we could avoid some of those confusions – for a writer to discard the past tense is just hubris.

This is about early humans coming to America, how they lived, how they arrived, so on. While the information given was interesting the effects, putting people in front of a green screen or blue screen, made it feel like I was watching a cartoon. This didn't bother me as much as the fact that many scenes were used again and again and that the commercial breaks were not taken out, so things kept repeating. A lot. Also, the theory that the first Americans could have come from Europe, and were wiped out which is why none of their genes are among the current American Indians, is somewhat hard to support, I think, without more evidence.
In the end I think you have to judge for yourself. But you may not wish to pay for the DVD just to find out if you agree with the theories - maybe get it from a library or from a friend?
May I also suggest The First Americans: In Pursuit of Archaeology's Greatest Mystery (Modern Library Paperbacks) if you liked this DVD?
