Audio not as advertised on case, still enjoyable to underwat

"The main feature is advertised as Dolby 5.1 on the back of the case but it is actually Dolby 2.0. This was very disappointing. It could have been so much better if 5.1. The music is very soothing, is present in the background when there is narration and is clear and crisp. Narration isn't distracting and is educational. At times there isn't any narration with just the music. The picture quality stands out even though 1080i. At times appearing almost 3-dimensional especially in scenes where fish are set against the blue. The only special feature is 59 min. of additional footage most of which is new but some included in the main feature. The video quality isn't of the same caliber as the main feature but still good. It is also Dolby 2.0. There isn't any narration in the special feature, just pleasant music. Overall I am happy with the quality but it really would have made more of an impact with Dolby 5.1. The packaging really needs to be corrected. The credits don't list any of the places where the video was shot. Jellyfish Lake in Palau was obvious, most of the other underwater sequences look like they were filmed possibly off the Great Barrier Reef and either Cozumel or Belize. I really wish they would have included the sites in
Really bad BD

"This program recorded in SD and sound just 2 channels.
Most TV programs better quality than this.
I have many documentary blu-ray discs and this the worst of all."
