I had always wondered if ABC's 'World of Discovery' would ever be available on DVD, and was quite excited when I found this one available, which I had never seen. This one follows renowned underwater photographer Alan Giddings (perhaps best known for his work with Great White Sharks) as he attempts to follow the all-but-extinct Blue Whale - the largest animal on Earth - to its breeding grounds off California's coast. While a lot focuses on Giddings himself and the experts with him, there are at least some good shots of these rare and amazing animals. It is worth picking up for anyone interested in these kinds of documentaries.
There were constant lags in the video. Thought this was going to be a lttle like Planet Earth and film the animals. Lots on preservation initiatives and threats of extinction, not much actual footage.
However it is not for young kids as it is less of a nature show about tigers in nature, and more of an eco-sploitation film detailing the killing and butchering of tigers. It is meant to be graphic and disturbing to slam home the message that they are almost extinct, which can be a problem if you aren't expecting it. If you want something for the family to watch about tigers living in the wild, try the PBS Nature series.
