Movie Reviews

An Oldie
John H. Wahlert | Rutherford, NJ USA | 07/01/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Since there is no information about this boxed set on the Amazon web site, I clicked on Internet Movie Database and searched the title. I came up with a 2006 David Attenborough production. This isn't it. I have watched only the section on climate and noticed how old it looked. Toward the end came a comment, "in the 90's scientists hope to find out..." As far as I can tell, this series was made in the 1980's. Despite its age, I will certainly use the climate part in my college biology course. It is a fair treatment that emphasizes science."
This is the 1980's PBS documentary...

"Upon further inspection of this title, the other reviewer has it right. This program was a 7-part series which first aired on PBS in the United States during the spring of 1986. I watched it at the time and it is very good, although now the scientific facts might be a bit outdated. It's an interesting show nonetheless. Glad to see that they released it on DVD format..."

"Beware: Planet Earth-The Complete Series . . . is NOT . . Planet Earth-The Complete BBC Series. In my enthusiasm for a $30 Planet Earth 'Complete Series' set I overlooked this not-so-obvious difference and feel burned. My 1986 series looks and feels very dated tho I'm sure it was very fine for its time. In it the pacing is rushed, they have funny haircuts, primitive computers and talk about Skylab."
Best Treatment of Geologic Forces
Elizabeth Twain | Southern California, USA | 04/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although not the most recent film on the forces shaping our planet, the Earth, I have found nothing to compare with this explanation of the forces that have shaped geological Earth. I use it with both English Language Arts and History in middle and high school to set a common understanding of the way the Earth has become the planet we call home. From this foundation, I can take students around the globe as we read and study how and why people settled where they are, and how the places they live have affected development, and even the flourishing of culture, and the humanities."
