Visions of France
Two of the most popular travel destinations in France unfold from a bird's eye view.
See the breathtaking beauty of southeastern France from a spectacular vantage point. Shot in high-definition from a helicopter-mounted camera, these two programs afford dazzling views of historic Provence, and the world-famous Mediterranean wonderland The Riviera.
Travel from the mountains of Luberon to the Grand Canyon of Verdon - to Arles, Avignon, and Aix - to great Romanesque cities, hilltop towns, and bustling fishing ports. The distinctive palette that inspired van Gogh, Cézanne, Saint-Exupéry, and countless others is on full display as you take flight over olive groves, lavender fields, vineyards, and winding rivers.
The RivieraSee the sun-splashed Côte d'Azur, playground of the rich and famous, from the sparkling cobalt waters of fashionable beach resorts to rugged Alpine retreats. Follow along senic roads that curve sharply along the coast for unparalleled views of Cannes, Nice, St. Tropez, Monaco, and more.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
