Beyond Planet Earth


Beyond Planet Earth (Discovery Multimedia) is a solid, easy-to-use CD-ROM, designed in the same format as other Discovery titles. It is essentially a repurposing of a television documentary, done well. The text is well written and informative, the videos and stills top quality, and the “Ask the Experts” section is, as always, the best feature. This is not a deep reference title; rather, it is one with broad appeal that the whole family can use. Documantaries on CD-ROM are not an ambitous use of multimedia technology, but when the product is solidly good — like this one –we’re inclined to cut it a little slack.

– April 1995
