      Sunrise Earth is a beautiful, relaxing, serene compilation of some of the most gorgeous scenery that will ever cross your television screen. I am so happy with this purchase. I put this on in the background when I am working from home. For me, it's not something that you can just sit and stare at for an hour;, as it's not "entertaining". There are no spoken words, just scenery and the sounds of nature.

        I love to wake up to Sunrise Earth. It reminds me what a wonderful natural world God gave us to live in and take care of. My brother introduced me to it when it was on HD Theatre. Wish it, and the channel, was still on. Bought a set for his birthday and can't wait to give it to him. I notice that the American Sunrise set said "Vol. I" on the box. When will Vol. II be available? I'm missing "Edge of the Atlantic" and some others. Thanks for making these available. It gets my day off to a peaceful start.

          I love watching these every morning with breakfast. It's a great start to the day. The scenes are interesting and beautiful and the progression of the light is fantastic. I wish there were more available. I know there were a lot more places when they were being aired on the Discovery Channel.

            Finally the California Yosemite and Redwood National Parks episodes are added to the earlier Sunrise Earth: American Sunrises (3pc) set to make it 4 DVDs now.
            I use this product when I get up in the morning to relax and wake up as I make coffee and cook breakfast. The dogs and our bird just love it in the
            mornings.

            I love these DVD's for when I really don't want to watch TV, but have something on. The sights and sounds of nature is so soothing and relaxing.

            I do not like Disc C; Alewife Return, Tropical Palms, and Swallow Sea Cave.

                i called 3 times to customer service. i first time i told him i had bad disks so he sent me another set. i tried the new set and they didn't work any better than the first set. i called customer service again and the person said they would send a return mailer but didn't send it. i called one more time and the service person said she would send an other return card. i didn't receive that either so i've given up,but i will never buy another item from the discover store.

                Comments about this product:

                I have been a lifelong insomniac. Sunrise Earth is one of the few things I can put on an count on getting to sleep. But even during the day, I can put one on and the sounds of nature are just very relaxing. The beautiful sunrises and fabulous photography make me want to create art. They are great to read by. The sounds are so soothing, and not at all intrusive, and when you look up to rest your eyes, there is always something beautiful to see. Highly recommended. I just wish they had a way to repeat the same disc all day or all night.

                      We loved watching these when they were on regular programming, and commented that we'd like to own them. I bought them as a surprise for my husband's birthday and he's just thrilled. He's an insomniac and the quiet sounds are restful and calming and the scenery is just breathtaking. We are delighted by the quality and have already purchased a second set.
