Would have liked more scenes from the old programs

"This DVD has some great wildlife scenes from Nature's 25 years. I especially liked the one in which the two elephants, Shirley and Jenny, recognize each other as friends after 25 years-- a heartwarming moment like no other in the series. But most of the scenes are from the past few years of the show. The only clip from an episode with narration by George Page was from "Kingdom of the Ice Bear". Page had created the series, hosted and narrated it for many years. There was a tribute to his work by Lynne Sherr, who hosts the special. But it was a somewhat of a disappointment that scenes from more of the old episodes were not included, which, I think were "The Best of Nature". A few of the old programs are available on DVD here at Amazon, and they are well worth getting if you are a fan of the show. But most of them, which were once available on VHS, have not been transferred to DVD."

"The content is five stars, but the presentation is a 1. The original broadcast was in letterbox HD format, with a 16x9 aspect ratio. Granted this is not an HD DVD, but for some reason, the picture has been squished into a 4x3 (1.33:1) format. No amount of DVD player tweaking changes this, this despite the claim on the box that the video is "letterbox"'ed. Now, the cover on my box is different from that shown here, so I'm wondering if I got a defective early batch. PBS is sending me a replacement, so stay tuned!"
A DEFINITE MUST SEE!

"Whether you are a nature lover or not, this is such a great film - a compilation of some of the best nature stories from the last 25 years. The compilation will make you laugh hysterically, cry and cringe in horror from story to story. After seeing it the first time, with some guy friends (who ended up crying), I fell in love with it and wanted to share it with everyone! That I did, and even those friends of mine who can't sit through any part of any nature show really enjoyed it. This is a definite must see!"
