This is not a normal auction, please all the info before placing a bid.


Since I have a few of these to sell, this will be similar to Ebay's "Buy it now" auction. The price is set and as soon as a bid is placed this auction will be closed until the end of the auction.





Remember if you place a bid, you will be obligated to buy this item.

This auction will close with a bid of $26. I only have a limited number so you better get your copy while you can.

Winner pays $5 shipping within the US. International will be more.

"Lost World's DVD". Jim Miller and Stewart McPherson, 2006.

Descr.: 2 DVD discs, 120 minutes in total length.





The two-DVD "Lost Worlds" documentary was over two years in the
making. Over 10,000 images were shot during a series of expeditions
to the legendary "Lost Worlds" of Venezuela. These are gigantic table
mountains -- or Tepuis -- that tower over the surrounding rain
forest. The most famous of these is Mount Roraima, the setting for
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic novel, "The Lost World" which was
first published in 1912. Although no dinosaurs were ever discovered
on Mount Roraima or any of the other massive tepuis, the photographs
taken during the expeditions are, in many cases, the first of their
kind. From the summits of the table mountains there are breathtaking
vistas all around, while each tepui revealed new and exciting
habitats -- ecosystems that evolved independently from each other
over millions of years. Thus each tepui has its own specialized flora
and fauna, which includes a number of carnivorous plants. In
particular, the expedition captured images of beautiful Heliamphora
species (also known as Sun Pitchers) many of which have never been
seen before!

DVD One is narrated by Stewart McPherson and tells the story of
Roraima and the Guiana Highlands, which have rightfully been called
the most inaccessible places on the planet. Culled from the thousands
of images shot during the course of the explorations, every
photograph on this disc is amazing and the final product took nearly
nine months to complete. Documentary specialist Jim Miller, who is
well known among long-time CP lovers for his lifelong studies of
native U.S. insectivorous plants, has crafted a spectacular program
that is beautifully complemented by an original soundtrack composed
specifically for this project by composer and pianist Eric Genuis and
performed by the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra. As a bonus,
there's an additional eight-minute video with a score by Hearts of
Space recording artist Constance Demby.

As if that were not enough, Disk Two, which is titled "The Image
Bank" is a mind-blowing collection of photographs that document the
unique habitats and awe-inspiring vistas of the Guiana Highlands, as
well as individual chapters on each genus of carnivorous plant that
are native to this region. It concludes with an eight-minute
composition by Eric Genuis for string orchestra and mixed choir
that's guaranteed to leave you spellbound.
