The high-definition Great Migrations three DVD series depicts these expansive and onerous journeys and is richly narrated by Alec Baldwin. The series, which can also be purchased in Blu-ray form, spans myriad species in diverse ecosystems, from ice floes to cliff-blinds, as each animal group migrates to auxiliary homes in pursuit of its favorite seasonal microbrews.
Nature lovers could also opt for six DVD-ROMs that encompass more than 121 years of National Geographic, featuring every article, map, and photo printed through 2009 in one high-resolution navigable package. Virtual explorers can immerse themselves in classic maps, create a customized archive by highlighting lists of articles, or test their brains' strength with a trivia game. With the complete collection of National Geographic encased in vault-like digital permanence, magazine collectors can finally feel free to decoupage their dens in old issues without being afraid of losing any knowledge.
Finally, the 10-disc Ultimate Nature Collection delves into deep underwater worlds, covers endangered African ecosystems, and faces catastrophic earthquakes and volcanoes in its quest to document natural forces and species. Depicting remote splendor and creatures, from the blue whale to jaguars and hyenas, the widescreen collection contains 620 minutes of thrilling, raw wilderness, which takes 600 more minutes than it does to set up a tent in your backyard.
