Disney fans and collectors need to be aware that the 'US’ BLU RAY of “Roving Mars” is REGION-A LOCKED - so it WILL NOT PLAY on most UK Blu Ray players unless they're chipped to play 'all' regions (which the vast majority aren't). Don’t confuse BLU RAY players that have multi-region capability on the 'DVD' front – that won’t help.

As of March 2014 - there's no sign of this magnificent 2006 documentary film on BLU RAY on this side of the pond just yet …

This seems to be the American Blu-ray disc with code A, not playable on European code B players.
Sadly the American Blu-ray disc is definitely not playable in Europe.

Well designed documentary on two Mars rovers (Spirit and Opportunity.) We get just enough information and visuals to feel that we are there and part of the project. We are informed of the purpose. The crew looks tad polyandry.

Unlike movies that should concentrate on the story line with visuals coming in as a secondary attribute this documentary benefits form the Blu-ray treatment. One plus is the narration by Paul Newman.

Do not forget to look at the extras on the DVD.

From Walt Disney Studios comes “Roving Mars”, a George Butler film and presentation by LockheedMartin and NASA in the form of a captivating 40 minute film showing the detailed martian rover work at the Jet Propulsion Lab, the Kennedy Space Center, and other locales. Following that are computer animations of the successful launch from Earth across 300 million miles of space, and the sequential landings on Mars of, not 1, but 2 rovers six months later: “Spirit" and “Opportunity". NASAs Jet Propulsion Labs formed a group of scientists to run the project whose objective was to reveal if water existed or stills exists on Mars’ as a main goal. Most of the film shows the process of building the rovers and a part deals with the crucial parachute and landing systems. The end of the film shows actual and animated footage of the 2 Mars rovers and their journeys over the Red Planet’s desolate landscape in search of scientific discoveries, far exceeding their life expectancies. Highly Recommended. Five SCIENTIFIC Stars! (40 minute Color film by George Butler, narrated in part by Paul Newman, with actual footage, computer animated launch, space travel, and landings.)

Saw this film at the BFI IMAX many years ago and it stuck with me, was very pleased to find it available on-line.
A fascinating and insightful film that puts all of our daily worries to shame!
I heartily recommend this.

Pleasant surprise. Informative and it gives one a real sense of what it must be like to visit this 'close neighbour' of ours. Very clear video from my Prime Instant Video account too. I felt that while it focused on the team and their struggles, it didn't tell me much from a technical perspective and it was hard to tell which images were genuine and which were CGI. I guess that is the downside of Moore's Law. As a result of entering into a radio show competition, I won an acre of Mars. Well yeah, like that means anything, but what shocked me even more, was that people had actually paid for similar spots! The Moon was even sold out! Anyway, great documentary - assuming t isn't a subversive Illuminati plot. ** SARCASM ALERT **

American scientific ingenuity at it's brilliant best. When you see what they achieved, it will make you proud to be a human being.

This documentary invites attention to the very real achievements of brilliant scientists and engineers from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory...the sort of people who are best placed to try and ensure our survival as a species.

Science and engineering comprise our best defence against the twin lunacies of religion and politics. We need the help of brilliant scientists and engineers like this more than ever because, for the moment, there is no planet B
