20 years old content

I'm disappointed. I purchased this DVD thinking that it would be relatively current information, since it's described as released in 2007. Well, the content of the DVD was created some time in the late 80's; there are references to "when the Hubble telescope is launched into space" and "we're almost 20 years after we put a man on the moon"... The man on the moon was July 1969 and the Hubble was launched in April 1990. So the information contained on this DVD was created around 1988 or early 1989. A bit outdated I would say.

It would be great for someone who knows very little about these topics. Nice introduction to some of the concepts explained in Hawking's book "A Brief History of Time", published in 1988.

I would have not purchased this DVD if I had known the content was 20 years old.

Good item for a collector or anyone interested in the universe.Only negative comment - It was a little expensive for a short program.

HASH(0xa5c6ed68) out of 5 stars Three Geniuses in a room. The tough questions. Nov. 16 2007
By Jesse Chandler Harlin - Published on Amazon.com
To say the least the first review on this video is by someone who must have sniffed too many markers or is clearly more interested in NASCAR than knowing the answers to the deepest questions that humans ask themselves.

The video features Carl Sagan, world renown astronomer from Cornell, Stephen hawking, best selling author and mathematics professor and Arthur C. Clark, possibly one of the greatest minds in science fiction. This is a landmark video, and should be on everyones shelf. This is a great way to learn about three very great viewpoints in the universe.

I have read A brief History of time, and Stephen hawking pulls heavily from his book. Carl Sagan also mentions many themes present in Demon Haunted World, and there are echoes of Pale Blue Dot there also.

To say the least i loved the video. and it was NOT boring. It got my brain working and i was up all night thinking. Id give it thirteen stars if i could.

HASH(0xa645f2d8) out of 5 stars Dry, yes... Also a gathering of 3 of the greatest minds in history. Sept. 10 2007
By Mark A. Barneburg - Published on Amazon.com

This is a video that gathers 3 of the greatest mind of the 20th Century. Arthur C Clarke invisioned the communications satellite before we had the technology to make one. The late Carl Sagan was an amazing voice of reason and logic. Steven Hawking has brought that information to the average person, so that we may all understand our futures and our pasts better. More time should be taken to understand the message that these great men are attempting to convey....

HASH(0xa62d2f00) out of 5 stars Three great minds interviewed by one British Idiot Nov. 11 2008
By P. J. Heffernan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Three of the greatest minds of our lifetime and very little new or useful information. Magnus Magnusson asks some of the more redundant and useless questions. Hawking shows he is not only a mathematics genius he is a surprisingly witty comedian. Arthur C reminds me of my grandmother ,and Sagan is ,as always, three steps ahead. It's not a bad dvd but having devoured most of their other work this one leaves me feeling like I wasted a little time and money. Oh well, go science!

i loved this little film! its rather short but deep and beautiful.All the scientists are funny and kindly grandfather types who make the incomprehensible somehow simple . the information remains mind blowing and relevant even though i think this film was made in the 70's . watching it uplifted my spirits and made me think more about god concepts and the power of the unconscious.
