No this is not a copy cat of BBC's Planet Earth. This is a scientific program from years of collecting data from satellites and researchers put their findings all together. You'd be amazed how much detective work goes into it, such as how 1/5 of the planet's oxygen is seemingly trapped in the Amazon forest, but travels out via method of rich sentiments dumped into the ocean and then allowing plankton to regenerate the o2. Just watched 2 hours of this on PBS, and thinking, if every nookie of earth still remains to be discovered, man's thirst and quest for knowledge just never ends. You can view this program on PBS website before deciding if buy.

"The Earth from Space" is one of the best Nova productions ever. It presents what we have learned about climate, ecology, geology and a host of other topics from satellites. Stunning graphics show how Earth systems work in unison to make this home of ours function. I knew a lot of the facts that were presented in the video but the graphics gave me an even clearer picture of how things coordinate. I am purchasing this one because it is so amazing.

THis is by far the BEST Nova program I have watched. I pre ordered.... I doubt that anyone will give it less than a 5...
If I could I would give it an 8 out of 5....

JUST as a follow up. This Video is free to watch on PBS/Nova.... There is also a DISCOVERY Version on Utube. The discovery
version is NOT as good as the PBS version. In fact the reason I can follow the Discovery version is because I watched the PBS version.
SO if they are BOTH available online , why did I pre order the PBS version. I want to copy it to my IPAD.. The retinal display
is STUNNING... So what are you waiting for ... ORDER NOW!!!!

As someone who has studied and written about life sciences since 1970, this was absolutely, gaspingly gorgeous. It meant a lot to someone who remembers the first time we saw earth from space, as all the views of the planet are from satellites. It may be a bit over the heads of young children, but even fourth grade and up would enjoy and learn. I loved how the program tied together the effects of one system on other systems (geological, biological, chemical, magnetic, weather patterns, life forms). Fascinating to learn what each satellite "sees" and measures down to the millimeter. The imagry is gorgeous and makes technical examples easy to understand, such as the flow of cold water starting at Antarctica, its cycles northward, and how the water temperature affects weather patterns. It's beautiful, educationsl, and entertaining. Excellent quality compared to most natural science programs.Nova: Earth From Space

Some people have complained that because this was partly funded by the Koch Foundation, it must be biased. But, while this video avoids taking a stand on climate change, it explains, with a high degree of clarity, how and why we know so much about how the earth is responding to increased greenhouse gas emissions. It is crystal clear from this program that scientists are able to measure and monitor the Earth with a high degree of accuracy and should give most people confidence in the accuracy and truth of the conclusions shared by the overwhelming majority of climate scientists.

I saw this on PBS, re-watched it online and had to pre-order the DVD. It is by far a near perfect science documentary about the planet we live on. The graphics, the music, the narration all combine with some really fascinating information about our world that seems more like a complex living entity than merely a ball of water and rock.

A WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY GIFT FOR A 12 OLD WHO LOVES SCIENCE!!! He looked a t it and said to me, "Thank you for this. I love Science." I told him I knew he loved Science and that I seen this on NOVA ON PUBLIC BROADCASTING. He has a 9 year old sister who will watch this with him. She too loves Science and Math, as does he. It makes me happy to give a gift of interest and use to the person being honored and appreciated. Be a dutiful and well done!!!

If you are looking for an excellent production piece about Earth from a scientific perspective, you can't do better than this DVD. It is beautifully produced; the computer graphics, explanations of our scientific satellite system and dialogue help to explain the basic processes that make the earth such a unique place to inhabit. The news is not all good but one can't help but believe we have in place the scientific tools to better understand human impact on this fragile planet. This is a great DVD for families with older children and all adults interested in knowing how weather affects the planet's growing seasons, life in the seas, animal migrations and so on. It's science on a grand scale. Oh, did I mention that the photography throughout is superb so you get to see nature in its full glory.
