not a "show"
imdb-98138 June 2007
This ad-uninterrupted show consists of long fixed camera shots of a certain general location (such as a particular national park). With no narration (only ambient sound of the area being filmed) or moving cameras, it has the effect of effectively simulating a sunrise in the location (especially on a very large TV). It's not "entertaining" in the traditional sense, but it is very relaxing to watch, which I do every morning when I wake up. There are a couple episodes I don't particularly care for however, particularly there is one with a bunch of people doing Tai Chi, but they're just wearing street clothes, and they're not really synchronized either. If you have a DVR, you can keep a couple episodes on there, in case the one that is showing isn't to your liking.

Natural Expression.
justletyoube27 February 2007
Stanley Kubrick offers a glimpse of what our world was like before man and his evil ways started to interfere.

Likewise, in each episode, Sunrise Earth's producers position their high-def cameras at the brink of dawn in a lush natural setting, usually in a national park or along side a body of water. Then, as the sun rises over a one to two hours period, the show chronicles how Earth and nature (birds, animals, weather conditions) co-exist at this marvelous time of day.

Like Kubrick's "Dawn of Man," Sunrise Earth lets the high-def pictures do the talking. There is no narrator getting in the way, only an occasional graphic reveals the location and the time of day. It's a powerful technique. By eliminating the human altogether, Sunrise Earth makes you feel like what you're seeing could be what you would have seen hundreds of years ago. It's nature unplugged.
