This disk is good as far as it goes, which isn't very far. Although frequently visited areas are covered, the whole north of Alaska is not covered so you don't see any polar bears. There are many ground-level shots in what is supposed to be an "above" disk. I've been there and the essence of a lot of places, especially towns, just isn't captured. On the other hand the mountain shots are majestic and look great in blu-ray.

Great product for a relatively low price. Over Alaska shows footage of many of the state's attractions. Might not have the greatest narration or presentation, but it looks beautiful. Recommended for nature fans.

This is one of the greatest documentaries I have ever seen: fantastic views of the mountains, very interesting and useful information told by a pleasant voice of the narrator and what I found really helpful was the location of Alaskan national parks and towns on maps.

Photography was GREAT. It covered a small segment on Denali, but mostly Anchorage and
and South East Alaska. Well worth the money! Beautiful!

I bought this video to try out my new Blu-Ray player and I was not disappointed. This 1 hour video is broken down into several segments that showcase Alaska in splendid beauty you'd expect. If you love Alaska and what it has to offer, this DVD is a must see. And for the low price, its a win/win situation!

I bought this blu-ray disc in order to test out my new Panasonic 58" Viera HDTV and was not disappointed. The opening scenes alone justified my hdtv purchase, with the most eye-popping green color of close up vegetation that I have ever seen. When I have friends and family over for a visit I always pop this in my blu-ray player for a demo. I also have been using this disc on mute as a stunning background when I am relaxing in my den. I have been to Alaska only once, but this is a definite motivator to return to visit as soon as possible. I plan to get other discs in this series.

Wow! what a wonder blu ray. One of the best out of my collection. Astonishing videography. Will be the first blu ray I play once I get my home theater up and going.
Simply breath taking. Wanted to watch it again, but decided to save it for the next day. Just beautiful. For the price you cant beat it. Alaska is definitively a place I want to visit one day. Get it, you won't be disappointed. Its up there with Baraka~.

THis is Great. If you ever wanted to tour the Great state of Alaska or take an Alaskin tour, you will love this one. You can watch it many times in High Definition Quality. If you want to hear Music instead, that will work well with company. I have the Whole set and love it.
