Brazil Giant of the South - Travel Video.
Brazil Giant of the South - Travel Video.DVD. Client Denn Digital Camera. 70 Minutes. Brazil, the world's fifth largest in size with the sixth largest population, is considerably larger than all of Europe combined. If ever a country showed contradictions, it must be said it is truest of Brazil, from the elegant magnificence of Rio de Janeiro to the dark, forested backwaters of the Amazon. On the southern border with Argentina is Iguassu Falls. It is the world's fourth largest waterfall by volume and perhaps the most spectacular. Brazil's coastline staggers the imagination;4,600 miles of varying, rugged coast, harbors, islands and amazing white sand beaches. But if ever an area defied superlatives, it is the Amazon River Basin, draining an area larger that the contiguous United States. The promise is here to see;from Iguassu Falls, in the south to the Amazon in the north. Between are the people, the land, and a way of life. Brazil comes alive in Clint Denn's Brazil - Giant of the South.

Amazon: Land Of The Flooded Forest - Travel Video.
Amazon: Land Of The Flooded Forest - Travel Video.VHS. National Geographic. This beautiful documentary explores one of the most unusual geographic regions on earth, where water and land life intermingle six months of the year. When rains raise the Amazon river basin into the treetops, fish feed off fruit trees and families hurry to hoist their floorboards above water level. Guided by an expert Amazon biologist, National Geographic's cameras capture in lush color some of the forest's most intimate events: a delicate Watson bird protects its chick from an approaching boa, a male "water monkey" releases a cloud of babies from the nest in his mouth, tiny sea turtles dip into the water for the first time. The film also explores the heartbreaking depletion of the area's natural resources, by both natives struggling to survive and outsiders eager to clear land for mass crop production. The endangered Amazon offers a poignant reminder of the fragile interdependency of all creatures. 60 minutes

Sailing Down to Rio on the Queen Mary 2 for Carnaval! - Travel Video.DVD. A Doug Jones Travelog. 90 Minutes. In 1934, The Cunard Line launched the Queen Mary. It was the largest ship of its time and it a new standard for ocean liners of the era. In 2004, the fourth Queen to sail under the Cunard flag was launched, The Queen Mary 2. At 150,000 tons she is the longest, tallest, widest, biggest ocean liner of the world. And to commemorate the launch, Cunard sent the Queen Mary 2 on a voyage to Rio de Janeiro for the largest party on earth, Carnaval. The voyage duplicates a legendary journey of the S.S. Normandie in 1939. The Normandie was packed with the rich and famous of the day. The historic journey remains among the most remembered voyages of the 20th century. The new Cunarder, Queen Mary 2, repeats the experience. The film shows the wonders of this great new ship. Meet the Commodore and visit the bridge where the ship is maneuvered using only a joystick. Meet the Chief Engineer and visit the engine control room of the newest hi-tech ship on earth. And meet the French Executive Chef who will take us through the largest floating galleys of the sea.

Relax on the decks and enjoy activities as varied as art auctions and planetarium lectures and meet some of the 1400 people who make up the international staff. Sailing from Fort Lauderdale, QM2 stops in St. Thomas, the Virgin Islands then sails to the Southern Hemisphere arriving in the Portuguese colonial capital of Salvador de Bahai. Along the way travel overnight to the Amazon River and Iguazu Falls. QM2 arrives in Rio just as Carnaval begins. From the beautiful white sand beaches at Copacabana and Ipanena to the cable car ride to Sugar Loaf and the cog train to the Christ Statute atop Corcovado, Rio de Janiero is like no other city on earth. And you will see the magic of Carnaval, throngs of people dancing in the streets, and the spectacular, world famous, samba parades. Relive that experience as Doug Jones, one of the foremost producers of travel films in America, takes you along with his new film " Sailing Down to Rio - on the Queen Mary 2."
