Comments about PBS Utah's National Parks DVD:

I bought this for our academic library. It claims to be a photo-documentary of Utah's five National Parks with classical accompaniment.

Instead, what I got seems like a Chamber of Commerce production, with all-aerial, non-HD shots. There's a tiny bit of information about the parks and Utah's nature and geology, but it's drowned in shots of towns and even lengthy looks at a parking lot and several huge churches or temples. There are a couple of shots of animals which appear to be running in terror from the filming helicopter, the shadow of which can clearly be seen in many of the shots. Also, I certainly didn't hear any of the Rossini or Vivaldi accompaniment mentioned on the case -- it was all New Agey guitar. The poor-quality images (made in 2004 so why not HD?) were particularly disappointing, and some of the narrative toward the end really did sound like a Chamber of Commerce ad, talking about the economy, the "relatively low-crime" cities, etc.

What I saw was so different from what was described that I wondered if the wrong DVD had somehow been included, but the DVD does have the appropriate label, so I can't tell for sure.

I would recommend Desert Dreams or some of the other photo-documentaries instead.
