This DVD of 3 hour-long episodes is a fascinating, informative and entertaining journey explaining how the tilt of the earth and its strange orbit around the sun affect our seasons and weather patterns. The two female presenters travel all over the world to explain everything in a straightforward style, avoiding too much melodrama & hyperbole (not too many proclamations of "amazing", "fantastic", "incredible" etc.). Maybe some subjects are slightly over-simplified (nice regular bands of climate zones around the earth etc.) and not fully explained (how exactly the earth's tilt affects our seasons and ice ages) but it gives anyone watching a much clearer picture of how the earth's behavior affects our climate - AND it doesn't rattle on about Global Warming!
My only gripe with this DVD is that whoever put the CHAPTER BREAKS in couldn't be bothered to put them at the most appropriate points, i.e. at the beginning of the changes in subject. If I want to find out how tornadoes are formed the nearest chapter break is halfway through explaining ice melting at the start of spring - so, fast forward a few minutes to get to tornadoes, then - NOT GOOD! Might seem like too much of a fuss but I would say that for this type of DVD, that would be used in schools etc., being able to jump to relevant subjects is pretty important. Naughty BBC.
Despite this issue I would definitely recommend this DVD to anyone interested in this subject.
