I specifically purchased 'American Sunrises' as a gift for my mother, she is very patriotic and feels that while there are amazing natural wonders all over the world she wishes she knew more about those in our own country.
Some of the areas specifically featured are places we vacationed in my childhood and some we actually lived in. I can vouch for those places being accurately portrayed--you really could go to northern Maine and see moose swimming without having to airbrush-out office buildings or traffic noise.
Mother really enjoys the small and discreetly placed (bottom of the screen and in a small-ish font) bits of information about the animals and geological or meteorological phenomenon being shown. Not every single creature or puff of wind has a factoid and they are not terribly insightful or obscure and the 'pause' feature on my mother's dvd player is used when one comes up because they can be tough to read before thy fade away, but for my mother having those little bits of info on 'how much a moose eats in an average day' really enhances the experience.
These are wonderful dvds for a variety of uses: my mother plays them while studying coursework for college, the audio aspect is very well recorded and can function on its own as a 'sounds of nature' cd (in dvd format of course); when she takes a break from studying she can watch the clouds and fog drift and the sand-pipers hop about; she has watched some sections and paused them to work on sketching the animals.
What a great alternative to watching the stress inducing morning news!! I am much more happy and am not beat down before I even wake up!! Cheers to the Discovery Channel for making this series.
Great resolution. I play mine on a 1080p upconvert dvd player and I can't tell the difference between it and the blu-ray.
