This is one of the major advantages of living in a country like China. I got this set of DVDs (4 DVDs and 1 CD) for a mere RMB 61 (equivalent to US$9) and delivered right to my door by DangDang.com, the equivalent of Amazon.com in China. The DVDs can be played in English, French and Chinese. I'm very pleased with this purchase, so much so I'm planning on getting more for my friends in Hong Kong and Singapore. I'd also love to get it for my cousins in Canada but I'm not so sure if the DVD code is in the right region. Never mind that, I'm still going to get a set for my cousin so that he can at least watch it on his computer if it can't be played on the TV!
After watching the above Youtube video, I now realized why it's sold at such a low price! Apparently Yann Arthus Bertrand distributes his works for free, ie. no copyright. One can even download it from the internet! Where from? I've no idea. You'd have to try googling for it if you're interested!
In my box, there are 4 DVDs focussing on Earth & Its Resources, Sea & Oceans, Fresh Water and Biodiversity + a CD of the original soundtracks. This set of DVDs was released in 2008 and it takes documentary form with images shot by the famous French Photographer Yann Arthus Bertrand. Lots of information and discussion about our depleting the world resources and also about green energy. It's extremely well done and it takes us all over the world. Even if you're not a "green" person, you'd still enjoy the film if you're someone who loves photography or loves to travel. It's a great sensory delight!
An excellent collection (4 DVDs + 1 CD) of documentaries by Uann Aurthur-Bertrand with topic ranging from Sea and Oceans to Biodiversity. Images are crisp and high definition. His concern with the world as a green planet is obvious. Excellent footage of places where we might never venture! A worthy collection for photography enthusiasts!
