Product Overview

From the unique vantage point of 200 miles above Earth's surface, we see how natural forces - volcanoes, earthquakes and hurricanes - affect our world, and how a powerful new force - humankind - has begun to alter the face of the planet. From Amazon rain forests to Serengeti grasslands, Blue Planet inspires a new appreciation of life on Earth, our only home.

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review From the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum comes Blue Planet, a documentary about our world seen both from space and from the air. Beautiful shots of space collide with not so pretty shots of what humans have done to the planet, and provide a cautionary tale about the dangers we live with everyday, from both natural and manmade disasters...Environmentalists will nod and agree wholeheartedly with the information provided, while those who see a forest and think instantly of how much money they can make from the lumber will disbelieve and call it propaganda...IMAX fans will be happy with the DVD, and those who like beautiful shots of the Earth will enjoy it as well. Most will probably prefer a rental to owning the DVD for repeat viewings, though those who want to show it to friends and talk about the issues raised will be glad to add Blue Planet to their collection.
