Of Hearts and Hypertension: Blazing Genetic Trails Howard Hughes Medical Institute 1 2006 MEMBER REVIEW: There are four parts, the first part gives a very good (and useful to me) overview of how the heart works. The next 3 parts deals with genetic based heart disease. I found the first part well worth watching.
Oil On Ice Dale Djerassi/Bo Boudart 1 90 About Arctic Wildlife Refuge
Origins: Battle for the Planet Discovery 1 50 2003 MEMBER REVIEWS: 1) A nice introduction to the Cambrian explosion and early evolution. Starts with the Cambrian explosion, and the various creatures that had evolved. It is Vertebrates vs. Arthropods vs. Mollusks. Showing the fossils of the Burgess Shale in the Canadian Rockies, they explore how unlikely survival of piciea was to evolve into us. The arthropods-giant bugs-ruled. Then they go to the Soom Shale in South Africa, and the conodonts, descendants of piciea when the mollusks ruled. After that came snowball Earth. The arthropods came back, but reached their limits, leaving the way clear for the vertebrates to take over on land. There is lots of good evolution, and many fossils to be seen, and also lots of good animation showing all the weird creatures living in the Cambrian. It is worth watching more than once. 2) This focuses on the Cambrian Explosion over 500 million years ago, when the land was barren and everything lived in the oceans. You get to see all the weird animals and plants around at that time, and which ones evolved into humans. The CGI is well done, and looks pretty natural, for depicting things we only know directly as fossils. It is 2003, so they miss some of the most up-to-date information (all life was only slime before the Cambrian, not!), but it is still pretty good, and you find yourself wondering which will win, insects, mollusks or vertebrates. (Hint: we are vertebrates.) You go to the Burgess Shale, and other interesting places. It is worth watching, and if you want to know more, read "Wonderful Life: the Burgess Shale and the Nature of History" by Steven Jay Gould (1989). It is somewhat outdated, but still a good read.
9893683931 Our Living Earth, Volume 1 Encyclopedia Britannica 1 39 2008 MEMBER REVIEW: Remember those science films you watched in grade and high school? They were usually one subject and earnestly, if ponderously narrated. This DVD will bring you back to those days. It contains 2 of these films-one dated 1977 is about Hawaiian active volcano (hint, it is not Kilauea), and the other dated 1978 is about fossils around the US in general, and the exciting revelation that oil and coal come from ancient organisms and can be called "fossil fuels". Needless to say, there is little that is new or exciting here. They are proud of a diorama of a fossil marine reef. That is how cutting edge it is. If you are looking for something exciting, pass this DVD by. If you want nostalgia, and to see just how far geology has come in the past 40 years, this one is for you.

Outdoor Idaho: Idaho Geology: A Convergence of Wonders NEW16 Outdoor Idaho 1 60 2012 Description: The evidence is everywhere. Astonishing things have happened to a place we call Idaho. We search for answers in the folds and fractures, floods and bewildering formations. Ours is definitely not a landscape for the timid. Yet this land also beckons us to explore and to enjoy. In this exploration of a geology that has inspired and frustrated every generation, we examine the forces that unite us and divide us, and bind us together as a state.
