"Although it is a decent production, any appeal is lost here with no chapter breaks to frame the events in this huge historical review. "Remarkable 20th Century..." becomes a tedious beast to manuver through, unless you intend to watch each decade/chapter all the way through, and who does that with a reference production like this? You'll navigate to a topic,fast-forwarding/rewinding much as you would have with a VHS format...so the technological advantages of the DVD format are lost. As a reference, considering that lack of any index... not only as a menu item, but no clues on the packaging either, these discs become even more mysterious, ponderous, and disappointing. For a user-friendly reference to 20th Century milestones, buy the Madacy product, and steer clear of this one unless you collect these sorts of things!"
