2.0 out of 5 stars Excellent visuals but insubstantial content
This DVD covers life from its very conception in the primordial soup right up to the arrival of Homo sapiens in Africa in the form of Lucy, the skeleton of a female discovered in Ethiopia.

This gives one an idea of the breadth of the topic which, according to the DVD cover, exceeds 70 minutes. Being generous maybe this is correct if one adds in all the extras...

This review is from: Eyewitness - Prehistoric [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
This DVD covers life from its very conception in the primordial soup right up to the arrival of Homo sapiens in Africa in the form of Lucy, the skeleton of a female discovered in Ethiopia.

This gives one an idea of the breadth of the topic which, according to the DVD cover, exceeds 70 minutes. Being generous maybe this is correct if one adds in all the extras but the length of the actual documentary cannot be more than 50 minutes at best.

The DVD skates the surface of the evolution of animal kind & the development of the continents from their inception as Gondwanaland to the present distinctive continents. Given the enormity of the topic & the limited time to convey it, the commentary & details presented tend to be facile & insubstantial.

Based upon the "flamboyant" & unique visual presentation, I would infer that the target market for this DVD is the teenage market. If this assumption is correct, then this DVD would appeal to its intended audience otherwise it would not.

This review is from: Eyewitness - Prehistoric [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
Like many Eyewitness programs, it has a universal appeal without being too threateningly scientific. The kids will love this one.
