Holiday Greetings:

We thought your department or media library might want to receive 30-day
free preview tapes or acquire the most honored and highest rated science
video series of the year.

What makes JOURNEY TO PLANET EARTH relevant is its interdisciplinary
approach to understanding both global and regional environmental issues.

Strongly recommended by both The School Library Journal and Booklist,
here is what they said about the JOURNEY TO PLANET EARTH series:

“Superbly narrated by Kelly McGillis, this 3-part series illustrates the
desperate need for a balance between the needs of people and the
environment to ensure a healthy, productive society.”

“Employing live-action, computer animation, satellite images, archival
footage and an excellent script, JOURNEY TO PLANET EARTH enjoys
excellent video and audio qualities and far surpasses its teaching
objectives. An extraordinary production -- a must buy for media
libraries.” -- School Library Journal, August 1999.

“This ambitious three-volume set explores the fragile relationship
between people and the world they inhabit. Actor Kelly McGillis’
sincere narration guides viewers through the programs. Lavishly shot,
this series introduces world-wide environmental concerns to students and
other interested viewers.” -- Booklist, December, 1999
