This is a fascinating show about non-dormant
volcanoes around the world, how people live with them, and
how they're being studied. Frankly, it's very exciting.
There is a lot of colorful footage of the volcanoes.
As someone who used to live in Hawaii, I found it
particularly interesting to watch.
Anyone who loves
nature or cool stuff should enjoy this. There are no
features or extras on this DVD.

Our planet is bursting at the seams.
Around the world, up to 30 volcanoes erupt every day – and
hundreds more could explode at any moment. Meet the people
and wildlife that live alongside these volcanoes, from
Kilauea to Mount Etna. Discover how volcanoes cause
destruction but also create and nurture life. At the
“burning heart” of this documentary is a daring expedition
of scientists and adventurers to one of the world’s most
dangerous volcanoes, located in the Pacific island nation of
Vanuatu. Viewers will take a terrifying descent into the
Marum Crater with biologist Jeffrey Marlow, who risks a
boiling lava lake to collect and analyze rock samples for
signs of life. His discoveries could lead to a better
understanding of the origins of life and a picture of what
life might look like outside of Earth.
