India proves to be an extraordinarily diverse country, its landscape shared between one-fifth of the world’s human population and its spectacular wildlife. Viewers are invited to celebrate a land of beautiful and varied extremes as we venture 21,000 feet up in the Himalayas to the source of the Brahmaputra, one of Asia’s great rivers, fed by billions of drops of melting ice. Well meet the endangered one-horned rhinoceros and learn why Indian wild buffaloes are one of the most dangerous animals.
Episodes include Elephant Kingdom, Tiger Jungles, and Desert Lions.
The DVD-R is a non-rewriteable digital format that is compatible with most commercial DVD players. The DVD-R format is created with MPEG2 Variable Bit Rate Compression with stereo sound.
How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD-R Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
This documentary compares with BBC series like Planet Earth, Wild Pacific, Wild China, etc. It is over two hours long and not a minute is wasted. It focuses entirely on the wildlife, and is actually narrated by Mr. Attenborough, narrator of many BBC series. I only wish it was available on Blu-ray. Also check out National Geographic's "Great Migrations" and "Untamed Americas" series, as both of them are superb also (and available on blu-ray).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
