OUTSTANDING SHOW! OUTSTANDING BLU-RAY ADDITION!

"I've been a fan of Sunrise Earth since I discovered it a few years ago on Discovery HD. Back then I used to try to save as many episodes as I could on the HD cable DVR. That proved to be stressful because HD shows eat a lot of space, even with the external hard drive. It was hard to decide which ones to save and let go.
Now it has arrived on Blu-ray in all its 1080 HD glory. On my Sony 46" LCD, the shots look slightly cleaner on disc than they do on the channel (no compression or pixelation). It is 5.1 surround-sound camera mic recording too. Great photos on each disc in the collection too.
When there's a movie or a show you really love, nothing's better than owning a physical copy of it in the best resolution possible!
They is another collection called "Sunrise Earth:American Sunrises"! It was released in late 2007. I will be looking forward to getting that one on Blu-ray too. For some reason it's DVD format-only at most places except the Discovery website.
This is nature as it was intended - no talking, no music other than natures own. Great way to unwind, mellow out, take your shoes off and CHILL. You will feel like you are at each location for the whole duration of the sunrise."

"I'm a big fan of the Sunrise series. I'm waiting for the release of Asia and Europe. I own the America Sunrises as well as the Ancient world. This one fits in the middle. Ancient World is boring, America's is awesome. The Seaside I expected more beach sunrises in cleaner locations."

"Sunrise Earth is an unusual program... films are without background music or narration, only sounds are those which naturally occur on location at the time of filming.
As another reviewer pointed out it is NOT a documentary.
It is an incredibly immersive and relaxing experience to watch these films, especially in blu-ray. It is something like video meditation, best enjoyed alone in a quite place. The first time I saw this on TV I thought, Who would want to watch this for and HOUR?!!!
But if you want to watch something to unwind with after a tough day this is the best programing available.
There are other collections available on blu-ray also that highlight other locations."

"I love the idea behing Sunrise Earth. No music, no talking, just natural sounds. Sunrise Earth was shot with HD in mind which makes these DVDs spectacular. I only have stereo speakers, but they do have a setting for surround sound which I can only guess would make the experience more enjoyable.
There are 4 discs, and disc A is both my least and most favorite. The first selection "Island First Light" is truly about the sunrise and there really is nothing else that happens. (Not that that is a bad thing, I just enjoy the movement of nature such as birds stirring and other creatures beginning their day.) The second selection "The Great Barrier Reef" is my favorite showing both above and below water shots.
The other 3 discs, have a good variety of activities happening at sunrise and are a joy to watch as well.
If I have any disappointment with the DVDs, it is that there is no "scene selection" so if I want to pick-up the video at any particular moment the only option is to fast-forward to where I left off.
I certainly hope that there will be another Sunrise Earth series coming soon."
