“Must Have DVD Set!”

published 17/06/2008

ProGreat scenes that you can't imagine exists

ConsCould be a little longer

Each dvd is on a topic about some landscape/water part of the earth and they use the best examples to show (ex: biggest cave, largest reef, etc.) You feel like each topic can actually be a 2 hour movie by itself, but they do...

published 14/01/2007

Pro Informative and entertaining

Cons none

My husband saw a couple of these programs a while ago and did nothing but rave about them. So when I saw the box set in Virgin for £10.99 I had to buy it to see what all the hype was about. I have to admit since starting to watch it, conversation has come to a grinding halt in our house due to...
