'The Best of World's Greatest' from PBS is a wondrous, invigorating, and beautifully shot and documented new series that photographically flies around the planet, revealing the world's greatest cities, natural wonders, and more over 2 discs and 300 minutes.
With the featured episodes such as Ancient Cities, Extreme Animals, Volcanoes, Lost Cities, Treks and Coral islands, there is something glorious for everyone here to be viewed, of that have no doubt.
A few that stood out to me within the Ancient Cities episode were the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus and, of course, Babylon; for it was the heart of the ancient Mesopotamian civilization as long as 20,000 years ago.
Volcanoes of the world brings us such wonders as the Cumbre Vieja Volcano – La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain, the Krakatoa Volcano – Krakatoa, Indonesia, and Mount Pelée – Martinique, Lesser Antilles, Caribbean.
Whereas the Extreme Animals of the world focuses on the Box Jellyfish, Cookiecutter sharks, and the Rhinoceros Beetle, amongst others, of course.
Each episode is chock full of bright and colorful knowledge, both spoken and visually detailed and so it's easy to give this bright new PBS series a massive two thumbs up! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
