Wasn’t sure what I was expecting when I ordered this. The presenter was excellent and gave a very detailed account of the history of the coastline of the Isle of Man.

Had a great holiday in the isle of Man but wish I had seen this before I went as I missed one or two places that the dvd showed. Well worth the money

Lovely comprehensive DVD of the Isle of Man.I loved it.
Travel DVDs can sometimes disappoint, but this really is excellent. No cheesy holiday photos here! The photography throughout is original, outstanding; the commentary (from Charles Guard, a local historian and film-maker) is also superb, very well-researched and interesting. Despite the title, this DVD contains much more than stunning aerial film footage of the Isle of Man; it is also an excellent introduction to the history, nature and culture of the island. Production values are high throughout (excellent background music too) – and the producers have not skimped on DVD extras either – the featured extras include ‘Follow The Sulby River’ (the island’s longest river), which is wonderfully done, as is ‘Fly The Coast’.
Watching this DVD is almost like you have your own private tour, accompanied by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide to the island. The DVD will also appeal to all who love beautiful cinematography. Easily the best general introduction to the island on DVD; outstanding in every way. Five stars are well deserved.
Footnote (20th May, 2011): Looking for a more specialist focus on the history of the island? If so, check out Charles Guard’s latest DVD: ‘The Castles And Forts Of The Isle Of Man’, and my Amazon review of this. This latest DVD title from Charles Guard is also very good, but, unlike the ‘Isle Of Man From The Air’ DVD, is probably rather too specialist in focus to serve as a holiday souvenir for a first-time visitor, or as a comprehensive and general introduction for someone new to the island.
