5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent
You don't have to be nuts about cycling to enjoy this, it's not about the bike. Its about the wonderful variety of scenery, landscape and buildings that you can see from your armchair. It's longer than I thought it would be too, much better than most travel documentaries. Highly recommended by this cycling and aerial photography afficionado.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great images - dreadful soundtrack!
Fantastic overhead camera work completely ruined by an over obtrusive music track that overpowers the commentary Phil Leggett reads from a script, Paul Sherwin would have been better!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pictures great - commentary dire!, 30 Aug 2014

The aerial photography is as good as can be expected, but the "itinerary" used to link the shots together is contrived and unconvincing. The worst thing, however, is the commentary - I am a great fan of Phil Ligett as a cycling commentator, but here he is dire - he reads the commentary as if it was a bus timetable, and he mis-pronounces about 90% of the place names. In addition, there are bits where he reads out a different location from the caption on the screen. Definitely one to watch with the sound off!

I've always enjoyed the helicopter images of the French countryside when watching Le Tour - and often been irritated by Phil;Liggett's inane commentary. With this you get both: an exquisite perspective on the French landscape with Phil; at his rambling worst. So turn the video sound offput on your favourite instrumental CD and enjoy the images.
