How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs; however, there are chapter marks that are set approximately every 5 minutes, which makes 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 Exclusives titles are not Close Captioned; we apologize for any inconvenience that this limitation may cause
I have been showing this video to my 7th grade science students for years! I like how it shows the characteristics of many different kinds of volcanoes. The students are fascinated by the acid lake in Indonesia, and by the behavior of these "crazy" volcanologists. After watching the video, I have the students write their own volcano eyewitness story.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
