The filming and information on all the creatures is incredible and fascinating. It is very well made. Our 7 yr. old son absolutely loves them, and has watched them 3-4 times at least each. The only thing we do not like about it is the topic of evolution is profusely encouraged in this set of DVD's. Our children are aware that it is not what we believe, so it is okay. But, be aware that it is incredibly presented as a fact in these DVD's; if you are okay with that, then this is a set for you. I would still recommend it.
I like the vedio but not the narration part. Her voice not matching with these type of documentaries. These DVD's are better someone else with good deep voice narrated it. for this reason I dont like these DVD set.
The BBC Life 4-disc DVD set is very useful in my elementary grade class. I was able to use this for supplementary lessons. This is excellent for inner city student who may not have the opportunity to visit places where they can actually see what is shown on these discs. I've actually given tests after view and found students scored high because of the audio and visual content of this set.
