          We have purchased movies from Discovery before for our grandchildren and they were all very well received. The kids look forward to birthdays and Christmas in anticipation of the next Discovery installment. They have all been wonderful. We do not pre-view these as they are gifts.

                Comments about this product:

                This is more a documentary about the researchers diving in the area of the Galapagos than it is about the animals themselves. It has an interesting segment on the impact of tourism on the island which I have seen somewhere else (I believe it was in the film entitled simply "Galapagos"). There are some nice shots of the Island and the animals that live there, as well as a few good under water shots, but over all it seemed to contain more footage of people doing the filming. I would say this film is quite ordinary and worth watching if it comes on TV, but not worth owning (once is enough, unless you really want to know about mini-subs, and what it is like to be on a research team). For a truely excellent documentary on the Galapagos you should buy "Galapagos" the BBC production. It is many times better than this discovery chanel film.

                  Cinematograpy is awesome, my only complaint is a misplaced section i.e. the Intruder section does not appear until 3 minutes into the segment - a little confusing. But all in all I learned a great deal about what is going on in the Galpagos today.

                    Comments about this product:

                    The undersea exploits of this team of scientists are shown on two levels. As a documentary of their findings,the images of new,unknown creatures are amazing. On the other,we are witness to the child like enthuiasm of this group of world class researchers and experts as they discover one new life form after another. Even though this DVD is no longer new, the creatures they found are so weird and obscure that this is still the only place I have ever seen some of them.
                    I collect these under sea explorations because they are the next best thing to travelling to another planet. With real skin diving forever beyond my reach,these DVDs are invaluable as a source of inspiration as well as entertainment. They never grow stale with repeated viewings, and they are suitable for any age group at any time.
                    The images are spectacular, and colorfull, and are perfect for the biggest of big screen systems.It just doesn't get any better than this! IMHO.

                      Comments about this product:

                      This causes one to stop, think and dwell on possibilities that are yet to be discovered; to think about how we can preserve what we have in order to make better use of it in the future. It reminds us that we "never know it all" and there is much yet to be discovered, learned, appreciated, protected and valued. All the answers to all the questions lie within our grasp, if we only learn how to read them.

                      I got this as a present for one of my friends who is crazy about the Galapagos Islands. We both really enjoyed the movie and thought it was filmed well.
