|1||Closed CaptioningVideoSecrets of the Titanic||God himself could not sink this ship.''-Titanic crewman The unsinkable ship sank at 2:20 a.m. on April 14, 1912. Approximately 1,500 people perished with her, a loss that stunned the world. For seven decades the fabled liner lay hidden 13,000 feet below the North Atlantic surface. Various expeditions tried to find her, but they were defeated by wild weather, the extreme depth, and conflicting accounts of the ship's last moments. Finally, in 1985, explorer Bob Ballard and a French-American team located the Titanic. Years of painstaking research paid off as they became the first humans to see the great ship since that awful night to remember in 1912. You can join Ballard on the search-and see what his team saw-through this acclaimed film.||51:06||$1.99||View In iTunes|

Over-excited but good clips.
This is for the Most Amazing moments ep. There was way too overwhelming a use of graphics, instant replay (waaay over used), sound effects, and lame background music all of which were cheesy time fillers (wasters), the un-needed countdown was pointless (and also a time filler), the previews for the upcoming segments were also pointless stupid time fillers. And the narrator was much too over enthusiastic. He sounded like he should've been narrating for the Most Extreme Challenges or America's Funniest Animals show or something. He was really lame and I couldn't take the show seriously with his voice combined with all the rest of the bright flashy distractions and annoying background music. The actual amazing moments themselves were pretty amazing and really deserve a more respectful format. Not everybody has the attention span of a three year old and I wish tv would stop catering exclusively to those that do.
National Geographic Really Put Their Name On This Trash?
I should have read the reviews before buying this... The first segment (amazing killer animals) almost made us sick. Besides the trendy, sensationalizing narration, the segments are edited to repeat the most grisly snippets. Who wants to see a baby egret get chewed alive by a pack of piranhas, anyway? And then, after having seen it once, you have to see it again! It's the same formula for each "story." The low quality of the editing and cinematography really sullies the good name of National Geographic. I'm not sure who their target audience is, but it's certainly not the folks who've read their high-quality magazine for years.
A fair program
The comentary is a but much. There is little "scientific" information and narrator sounds like he is trying to sell the next sumer blockbuster movie, not provide meaningful subtext. However, that aside, the photography is simply outstanding.
