|1998 USA The Greatest Places|
Witness the greatest collection of diversity ever produced. The Greatest Places is a large-format film that takes you on a journey to seven of the most geographically dynamic locations on Earth.
AMAZON - This mightiest of rivers forms a network of water channels that permeates nearly half of South America.
GREENLAND - Harsh, foreboding and almost completely buried beneath a cap of permanent ice and snow. Greenland is the world's largest island. It is estimated that some 10,000 to 15,000 icebergs are calved by Greenland's glaciers each year.
IGUAZU FALLS - Strung out along the rim of a crescent-shaped cliff about 2.5 miles long, some 275 individual cascades and waterfalls plummet up to 269 feet into the gorge below. The thunderous roaring can be heard from miles away.
NAMIB DESERT - Stretching 1,200 miles in length, but averaging a width of only 70 miles, the Namib Desert is home to the highest sand dunes in the world.
OKAVANGO DELTA - A 6,000 square-mile maze of lagoons, channels and islands helps Okavango earn the description "the river that never finds the sea." Think hippos are nice and slow? Think again! Ever try making your own paper? The first paper was made out of papyrus, still found in Okavango.
MADAGASCAR - The world's fourth largest island is currently home to a rich diversity of wildlife, including lemurs, chameleons, spiny globefish, and up to 10,000 species of flora, 80 percent of which are found nowhere else on Earth!
TIBET - The Chang Tang plateau, at an average height of 15,000 feet, gives birth to many of Asias's mightiest rivers.
