Movie Reviews

Riveting from start to finish!
C. Jones | Tallahassee, FL USA | 11/30/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A most engrossing trip to many countries seeing things you and I would never be allowed to even go near! Other than the fact that Mr. C. touches everything no matter how old they are this was a most enlightening DVD and SO worth watching. We couldn't afford a vacation this year so we watched one episode per day during my husband's week off work and pretended Mr. C. took us with him. He includes you in the conversation and his choices and the thought behind the choices is wonderful. Your life will be enriched by these two DVD's that have episodes front and back. Well worth the money! a great gift idea!"
Simply, Superb !!

"Congratulations to Mr. D. Cruickshank and to all the BBC team who made possible this beautiful documentary. It is in itself a treasure !!
I recommend this DVD series not only for family-home entertainment but also for libraries, schools and science museums in order to promote this so fine work. The quality of image and sound is excellent.
Key words from my part to this product: culture, knowledge, travels, photography, dream come true, peace, wonders of the world, amazing planet, beauty, diversity, mankind, animals, plants, architectural structres, ancestors, modernism. I can only compare this TV series with just one other TV series, and only one: COSMOS !!."
Wonderful tour of global art.

"Amazing 5 month tour of 34 nations. Having worked or traveled in most these countries, I was much impressed by Cruickshank's ability to capture the essence of these diverse cultures as manifested in their art and architecture. His comments were intelligent. One might quibble over some of the details, but all in all it's a stunning achievement. I really appreciated his covering lesser known spots like Mali and Ethiopia. Of course, I have my own photos, but they cannot compare with the beauty captured by these professional cameramen. What a marvelous addition to my own memoirs!"
Jolly Good- well done!

"The narrator's British accent and seemingly constant enthusiasm makes this video a jolly good treat. He manages to provide new insight to some very exposed art treasures.
My only complaint is that there is no program directory- I suppose he wanted the `treasures' to be unexpected.
Not having a program, makes finding a specific treasure to view difficult. I had to take notes, so I could go directly to video segments for class use. Maybe the producers could post a program list on the BBC website?
I highly recommend this video!
