This review is from: Earth Story [DVD] (DVD)
A solidly produced series on geology that provides fascinating insights WITHOUT the two most common nuisances of science documentaries (even some BBC ones): excessive CGI and irritating background music. In Earth Story, CGI is employed only to help illustrate a point rather than for show, and music is used sparingly. With these two plagues thankfully eliminated, you can concentrate on the actual content. The only thing that occasionally bothered me was that the exchanges between the presenter and the geologists sometimes lacked spontaneity and sounded like they were reading from a script. But that is nit picking, for this is truly an excellent series -- the kind you can watch more than once and be fascinated each time.
