      • Disappointing
      • Not What I Expected
      • Poor Visual Effects

      Best Uses

        This DVD about Rome was not up to standards expected from Nat. Geo. products. I thought I would recommend it for family use where there are grandchildren interested in the history of Greek and Roman influences. Not in good taste nor of value to adults or children. I would like to return this DVD - not valued by me personally nor to give as an educational gift.

                    National Geographic Channel’s groundbreaking series Great Migrations explores the massive movement of animal populations around the planet. The project chronicles these inspirational, often harrowing journeys that are marked by unforgiving odds, and what it means to move like your life depends on it. Wildebeests, zebras, red crabs, Mali elephants, walruses, monarch butterflies, jellyfish, and whale sharks will all be on display, and the production crew traveled some 420,000 miles, filming hundreds of stories in more than 20 countries. Using new science and technology, the series reveals how animals make death-defying journeys to survive. Great Migrations is the largest undertaking of its kind in the National Geographic Society’s 120-year history. The seven-hour miniseries premieres globally in fall 2010. National Geographic’s net proceeds support vital exploration, conservation, research, and education.

                    National Geographic goes beyond the controversy and political wrangling of illegal immigration to see the real-world battles being waged by the men and women responsible for securing our borders. Every day, they intercept an illicit flow of narcotics, money and weapons headed both north and south across the border. The risks have never been higher, with the violence of the Mexican drug wars a stone's throw from U.S. soil and criminals armed with increasingly sophisticated technology challenging the most rigorous countermeasures.

                    It is the stuff nightmares are made of: a skydiver loses his parachute and crashes into a high-voltage power line, a speeding car slams into a father holding his four month-old infant, and a giant wave knocks a man off a cliff and into an underwater cave. Although most people who find themselves in these horrific situations do not live to tell their story, there are some who miraculously manage to survive.
