I guess I keep hoping this producer will produce another fine product like "Silverton Train". Otherwise I don't know why I buy his product. Including reviews this (Trans Karoo) was a two hour program with less than ten minutes (liberal estimate) of narration. It would be nice to know what one is looking at, where one was, etc. Constant noise masquerading as music. Awful. One can turn it off but then one also loses whatever narration there is. Why can't producers when offering these turn on/off services divorce the music from the narration? Photography was superb, but in Blue Ray that's what one would expect. This was more travelogue than a train movie. Lots of flora and fauna but, by and large, without any identification of what was being shown. I'll save it for my son, who has been to and likes South Africa, to watch and then it goes to the local public library.

Additional remarks by Rail Buff:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Definitely not!.
