Looking forward to further releases...

"Hurray! I've been a huge fan of this series for a number of years (it also airs under alternate names like Air Crash Investigations in various countries). This is the first "season" of the series, which currently has 6 seasons of episodes, with something like 60 or so episodes. This is one of my all-time favorite documentary series featuring nice analytical and engaging storytelling and excellent production quality (typically far better than the average documentary). While later episodes would feature somewhat more advanced production quality, this first batch is still excellently produced.

Later episodes of the series aired in HD, but I don't ever recall seeing these earlier episodes in HD. An extra bonus for this set is that it's in anamorphic widescreen. Having only seen these early ones in their 4x3 aspect ratio, it was nice to see them in their full 16x9 aspect ration.

To the folks at Koch and National Geographic, PLEASE continue releasing this series. I'll absolutely purchase them all. And heck, it'd be extra cool to get the ones produced for it released in high def.

UPDATE: These episodes on the DVD's are definitely extended from the aired versions I've got previous recordings of. The couple episodes I compared had some 6+ more minutes on this DVD version (interview clips with family & survivors less important to the narrative seem to be a favorite for cuts). Each episode clocks in at 52 minutes, give or take a few seconds."

"I have watched the National Geographic series about Air Disasters for sometime now and it is done in a superb manner. This DVD set depicts well documented and very accurate information about these disasters as well as reports of post-air disaster information and how there were settlements by Airline Companies relative to what had occured. The series is done so well that you actually feel a part of the flights because of so much detail and how it is presented. I really don't find these accidents interesting except for the NTSB facts and the accuracy of how they were presented. It was as much of a learning experience for me as well as an unbelieveable way to stay completely glued to to watching a documentary. It is fascinating to watch."
