8392909806 How the Earth Changed History BBC 2 300 2010 MEMBER REVIEW: This 2010 series is a 2-disk 5-part set from the BBC. Being the BBC, the video is spectacular. Sometimes the music overwhelms the narration, but it is always spectacular to look at. And the series goes all over the planet. Professor Iain Stewart, a geologist, is the series producer and narrator, and if you like a thick Scots accent, he is the guy for you. This is a must-see for geology and history enthusiasts. "Water" explores the water cycle and how water shaped civilizations through history. There is history that has not been explored a lot, and different ways of looking at various civilizations and how they managed water. And it explores the politics of water, and how mismanagement ended empires. "Deep Earth" explores caves, volcanoes, plate tectonics & other deep-Earth phenomena. They get into mining, how the minerals were emplaced, & then exploited by man. They correlate fault lines, water, and cities. Fault lines are where the profit is, disaster notwithstanding. "Wind" explores how people have exploited the winds in sailing, but also the patterns of the winds around the planet. From the discovery of the trade winds & the age of exploration & the slave trade, to the dust bowl, wind & weather have shaped civilizations. It is as much meteorology as plain wind. "Fire" explores how man has harnessed fire for our use and civilization building as the human signature. Fuel drives civilization, and various energy crises are explored. From wood to coal to oil, man has used various carbon sources to fuel civilization. And now we have to break out of dependency on oil. "Human Planet" explores how people have changed the planet, purposely & by accident. The point is made that humans are as much a geological force on the planet as any natural force, so we need to be mindful about it. The extras go more in depth about a few aspects of the episodes in an informal manner. "Crystal Caves" goes into the gypsum caves in Mexico. They talk about the physical environment and how it impacted filming. "Walking through Fire" goes into the logistics of safety and using the suit. "Paragliding" shows the vagaries of flying that way.

1871358086 How the Universe Works NEW17 Discovery 2 344 2011 MEMBER REVIEW: This 2011 Discovery program has 8 programs on 2 disks. They start with the big bang, move to black holes, then alien galaxies and extreme stars. Each part is well explained with great Hubble graphics and builds to the next and so on. Some of the analogies are cheezy, but mostly they are understandable and help your mind grasp the massive forces that shape everything. And they use the subject to expand on concepts and ideas, well beyond what the episode title would indicate. Extreme planets, supernovas, alien solar systems, and alien moons are on the second disk. The animations and Hubble graphics are married and very well done. This is an excellent introduction to physics and astronomy. DESCRIPTION: Engineering the Universe shows you how the cosmos is designed, built, and actually works. From the beginning of time, Stars, Galaxies, Planets, Solar Systems, and more have been working individually and together to produce all that is and all that we see. See as never before the inner workings of our world, and explore black holes, supernovae, neutron stars, dark energy, and all the titanic forces that make us who we are. With a dynamic cast of experts and a new generation of CGI, Engineering the Universe looks under the celestial hood to reveal the inner workings of outer space: the story of how it is made and how it runs. This is your ultimate Cosmos Operators Manual.
1871361703 How the Universe Works Season 2 NEW17 Discovery 2 352 2014 MEMBER REVIEW: This 2012 Discovery program has 8 parts on 2 disks. Again this is an excellent introduction to cosmology, physics and astronomy. Volcanoes, megastorms, planets from hell and megaflares are not about anything on Earth, but rather in the solar system and beyond. Extreme orbits, comets, asteroids and birth of the Earth are also more cosmologically oriented. Again excellent animations and Hubble graphics make this another must-see series. DESCRIPTION: Explaining how the universe works is a task of galactic proportions, but this 2-disc set takes it on. Delivering almost six hours of scientific exploration, the collection covers planets, weather, energy, magnetism, orbits, comets, and other elements that make up this space that we call home. Still, providing answers only sparks more questions: Will chaotic weather lead us to alien life? Is Earth really the only inhabitable planet out there? Is our world a target in the magnetic minefield of the universe? These 8 episodes will help you to understand the intricacies of the wonders of our world, as well as what each can teach us about our own lives.

8779750799 Ice Twisters First Look Studios 1 91 2009 Includes bonus movie "Storm Cell" 92 minutes. MEMBER REVIEW: A cheesy B-movie combo of TWISTER and THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, which sees Oregon plagued by an outbreak of government-created tornadoes which additionally have the power to freeze anything in their path (apart from the protagonists, of course). The resulting film is as silly as they come, made on a low budget so there is plenty of talk and not so much disaster. When the weather outbreaks do hit, we are treated to flying CGI cars and hilarious shots of people/buildings turning to ice as the tornado passes over them. I do not mind a bit of cheese like this, but the rest of the film is so poor as to make actually watching it just not worthwhile. The acting is extremely wooden, and the characters anything but true to life. Nobody seems to show any emotion and you wonder whether those involved are all Stepford creations. The thrills are nonsensical and short-lived, and the supposed technological explanations ridiculous. Sadly, this is exactly what I was expecting from a "Syfy Channel" television movie, and I got it.
