Holiday gift guide 2010: DVDs for the family

Now that we're fully into the holiday shopping season, Monitor staff writers have compiled a list of items you might consider as Christmas or Hanukkah gifts. We begin with some family-friendly DVDs. Each item has a link to amazon.com, where you can purchase the item and help support the Christian Science Monitor at the same time.

1. Life ($59.98)

The Oprah Winfrey-narrated extravaganza, an 11-part documentary series capturing some of the most exotic, sensationally filmed moments of our planet's natural history, comes in a four-disc set from the Discovery Channel. See things never before seen: tiny Hawaiian gobies climbing 400-foot waterfalls to lay eggs in safe pools, dolphins filmed from the air as they go "mudringing" (trapping fish in circles of mud), Komodo dragons hunting water buffalo 10 times their size, and a basilisk lizard walking on water.
