Editorial Reviews

It's the ultimate voyage our world has to offer: a journey from the temperate surface of our world to the fiery core of the Earth. With the aid of stunning visual effects, the unexplored interior of the Earth is split wide open, giving us an unbelievable view. From glowing seams of pure iron ore to sparkling diamond caverns to the magnetic field that keeps us safe from the lethal radiation of space... for now, this is the fantastical world we live in -- and never see.

Bonus Feature: Amazing Earth

From the heights of Mount Everest to the molten lava fields of Hawaii to the very core of our planet, the geologic forces that have changed the planet's face over the past 4.6 billion years are revealed. With state-of-the-art effects and the latest scientific information, this is the story of striking meteorites, gigantic eruptions, the movement of continents and other geologic events that have shaped our AMAZING EARTH.

I teach Introductory Geology and Earth Science and am always on the lookout for movies for class. I think this is a good intro for my Geo class. It gives a good overview of the Earth's layers starting all the way from what gravity does for life all the way to the core. The presentation uses excellent graphics while the topics are interesting. I would say this doesn't go in depth on anything and in reality it is a little cursory but it does seem to keep the students attention with interesting little details like amphibians were once the largest predator and the size of alligators. I show particularly for that reason. I'm trying to hook the students interest from the start and this seems to grab some of the borderline students. So if you are looking for a well done, entertaining but also enlightening video on the Earth's internal structure, I recommend this.

I teach science to 2nd- through 5th-graders, and my students absolutely love this video. We use it for our units on tectonic plates, earth's geologic history, the origin of life, and also in our unit on magnetism & electricity. It has excellent simulations showing the formation of our solar system, convection currents in the magma that cause the plates to move, the swirling towers in the Earth's core that create our magnetic field, how the magnetic field protects us from the solar wind, the possible origins of life on earth, extreme-o-philes surviving near volcanic vents, and much more good stuff. Patrick Stewart makes a good narrator.

I have to say; when it came to understanding and researching the center of the Earth and the planet's contstruction for my novel, this show covered it well. The extra feature, Inside The Volcano, was a perfect bonus, (although the bonus is rather long and not as well paced owing to the time it was made).

I should point out that Patrick Steward IS on this DVD--he is in the bonus feature documentary, Inside The Volcano, produced about 1996. He is there, but not in the main feature. That's where the confusion comes from. I own it, and I recognized his voice.

Good stuff overall :)

This film covers the planet from top down. Starts with crust, tectonic plates, mountains and Volcanos, etc. Yellowstone Park is just a volcano crater 25 miles across!

Moves down to the mantle, explains it is like fudge, slowly stretching and moving the tectonic plates. Shows the ocean plates diving into the mantle, all the way to the core! They send water with them, which causes volcanos. Says that there is much more water in the mantle than in all the oceans. If all the water was on the surface, would cover the mountains!

Shows researchers visiting the Lizard Islands in England where mantle rock is on the surface.

Covers the outer core of molten iron. This swirles and imparts motion to the mantle, creates earthquakes, volcanoes, etc.

Includes the deep iron core. Hot as the surface of the sun. Produces the magnetic field that protects earth and atmosphere from solar radiation. Relates that many astronauts develop cataracts, evidently from solar particles damaging their eyes. I thought the graphic reproducing the interaction of the magnetic field was outstanding. Connects the aurora and the compass. Provides one idea of how the magnetic field is generated in the core. This maybe from tubes of molten iron that create helical structures from the earths rotation. Facinating!

All of these sections are done with excellent computer graphics. Spends enough time on each part to capture idea without being repetitive.

Watched with my ten year old grandson. We both enjoyed it.

This video is more than awesome! The title feature: Inside Planet Earth is outstanding in its very informative content. However, the bonus feature: Amazing Earth is as good or even better. It is definitely a case of getting 2 for the price of 1, and then some. Worth every penny.

I purchased this for my 5 year old son who is fascinated by science. He sat and watched the whole thing and was impressed. It's a very easy to understand film, with great graphics, interviews, discussions, and science models. I learned a lot myself; fascinating things about the planet.

Recommended to all; no age limit. Great buy.
