Format: DVD
Having enjoyed the region 1 original version of "30 Years Of National Geographic",I thought that I would buy the region 2 version because it was in PAL which has a better picture.
I was disappointed and appalled to find that the original 93 minute "30 years of National Geographic" program which has been shown on TV in it's entirety around the World was cut down to barely 52 minutes in the region 2 version.
Now these are programs which have been described as "national treasures" and yet they have cut it nearly in half.
How could they do this and with no warning to buyers?
Don't they think that international viewers are entitled to the entire original classic program?
Not only has the main program has been gutted,but the bonus 26 minute program "best of cameramen who dared" has gone,the NG previews are gone and even the 12 shot photo gallery has been reduced to only 6 shots.
So we are left with a paltry 52 minute program which will leave viewers of the original and eccellent TV show wondering where did the rest go?
It is extremely disappointing that they would do this to such a good show.

Excellent compilation of some of the most interesting clips from National Geographic's top documentaries. They're only brief glimpses, but these are some of the greatest wildlife and discovery films ever made. Some of them were shot 15 or even 20 years ago, but they sure are still amazing!

The DVD available in the UK (in PAL format, not the American NTSC version) also contains a 25-minute bonus film about 'Cameramen who dared'. This is a look at how these cameramen managed to get these amazing shots. One photographer swims in a pool with alligators, with only his camera between him and their jaws! The bonus film is an unexpected but very welcome addition to a great film.

Altogether, an excellent introduction to National Geographic films!

This is a brilliant overview of National Geographic's very best documentaries. Contains all the superb filming we have come to expect from the NG Channel. They have been selected from Nat Geo's huge repertoire so that they flow natutally from one subject into the next. This will keep you captivated for the full 55 minutes and you'll want to view it again and again. I found this a very worthwhile 'best buy' and am now looking to buy some of the individual 'Specials' on DVD.

Could not view it as mistakenly overlooked that it was Region 1.
