This is a series presented by Dr.Iain Stewart with his refreshing Scottish accent.He has presented this series of how the impact of "Volcano", "Atmosphere", "Ice", and "Oceans" affect the Earth.He finishes the series with his presentation why our planet is unique in the episode "Rare Earth". Few documentaries have me as riveted as this one as Dr.Stewart took me around the world into space and into volcanoes under the sea and ice.But for me the most remarkable of the whole series was the the salt mines in Sicily.The style of presentation of Dr.Stewart is very pleasant which will make it enjoyable for children and adults to watch. This documentary is at par with Life and Planet earth.Bravo to the makers of this documentaries and Dr.Stewart you do more for the environment than fear mongering it brings awareness through education.I hope people watch this on Blue ray to enjoy the great photography.
This is a great video on how our Earth works, with fantastic photography and a story told by a guy (and various others whom he visits) who really know what he (and they) is talking about After you've seen that, you'll be surprised how different our planet will look for you. His approach of choosing individual topics (volcanoes, air, etc) for segments of this story, rather than geographical areas, and the type of illustrations he provides, is refreshing, interesting, and logical. I wish he would continue with several more topics on related subjects and hence more of this great photography.
It's a bit of a downer full of doom and gloom but the content is good. The end message is the world will survive. It will even survive us and work its way back into equilibrium no matter how much we abuse it. The question it poses is given how much we're abusing the ecosystem, will we survive?
The photography is outstanding and you get a sense of being at the place they are filming this video is for people who are intrested in nature and how nature is inter-locked with life this is a great buy
