Where's the rest of it?

Comments about PBS War Ship - Innovations That Changed the World DVD:

Just finished watching it, but there appears to be two parts missing. The disc I purchased covers the the concept of seapower; the technological revolutions from Nelson to WW2, and the Big Gun fleets of dreadnaughts and battleships. However, the disc claims to include a section on submarines and aircraft carriers. These 2 parts were not on the disc.

Nevertheless, the DVR is exceptionally educational, and capably links elements of 19th and early 20th century technology to modern day warships.

Comments about PBS War Ship - Innovations That Changed the World DVD:

I can not offer a review of this particular product at this time, however, my overall opinion of PBS documentaries is that they are of almost unmatched quality. My opinion is based on having watched many other PBS documentaries that I have been very pleased with because of their historical accuracy, the human element, and the quality of presentation that tends to holds one's attention usually leaving me with the desire to see more. Unlike many programs offered by others today that have little substance, PBS materials almost always have great content. I can watch many of the PBS programs at a later date and enjoy them again. Always money well spent.
