 Newest Title in Celebrated DVD Series Brings
The Pearl of the Antilles Home to You September 9, 2014

Cincinnati, OH (August 7, 2014) – The Republic of Cuba is comprised of many islands in the Caribbean spanning hundreds of miles, but in less than 30 minutes you can take it all in thanks to Worlds Together Cuba, the newest title in the DVD series from Master Communications, landing on DVD September 9, 2014, just in time for National Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15-Oct. 15, 2014).

 

Worlds Together Cuba takes you on a whirlwind tour of the intriguing nation known as the Pearl of the Antilles. The country includes the main island of Cuba, the Isla de le Juventud, several archipelagos and over 4000 smaller islands and islets. Its economy is comprised mostly of agriculture, with an abundance of sugar plantations, tobacco farms, maize fields, mangoes, pineapples, coffee and rice.  Cuba has many wonderful theatres, museums and churches throughout its beautiful cities, including the capital city of Havana, one of the oldest in the Americas. The country provides free education for its citizens from kindergarten through University and free day care for children seven and under.  You’ll learn all this and so much more … and you won’t even need your passport!

 

Also available Sept. 9 in the Worlds Together series are Ecuador, which provides an overview of one of South America’s most diverse countries, and Colombia, which takes you throughout the beautiful and fascinating country, from the colonial jewel of Cartegena to the backstreets of Bogota and through the sprawling Amazonas region. Viewers can choose either a Spanish or an English track for these three new releases..

 

The Worlds Together series originated out of the travels of photographer/songwriter Elmer Hawkes.  The series visits some of the most remote places on Earth, examining topics ranging from history and culture to sports and cuisine and giving viewers an up close and personal introduction to cultures quite different from their own.  Each title introduces facts about the various climates, languages, religions, wildlife, architecture, agriculture, ethnicities and more. Other titles in this series include West Africa, East Africa, Ethiopia and Tibet.

Initial Titles in the Launch Feature Africa:

“Ethiopia”

 “East Africa”

“West Africa”

 

Cincinnati, OH (August 1, 2012) – Bringing remote areas of the world right into your living room is the new DVD series Worlds Together from Master Communications.  Initial titles in the launch transport young viewers and their families to the world’s second-largest and second-most-populous continent through three charming titles – East Africa, West Africa and Ethiopia, available on DVD September 4, 2012 for a suggested retail price of $29.95 each.

 

The Worlds Together series, originating out of the travels of photographer/songwriter Elmer Hawkes, visits some of the most remote places on Earth, examining topics ranging from history and culture to sports and cuisine and giving viewers an up close and personal introduction to cultures quite different from their own.  Learn about the various climates, languages, religions, wildlife, architecture, agriculture, ethnicities and more.

 

East Africa features Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi (“the place of cold water”); Mombasa; Tanzania’s Dar es Salaam, an Islamic city with a busy seaport known as “Haven of Peace;” Zanzibar, a city where boats and global trade play an important role; and Uganda’s Kampala, a very modern city and home to one of Africa’s largest universities. Also visited is Uganda’s Lake Victoria, Africa’s largest lake and the second largest freshwater lake in the world.

 

Next, in West Africa, visit Mali, a land of fishing and farming, and its cities of Timbuktu and Bamako; Nigeria, a federal constitutional republic that boasts over 250 different ethnic groups alone; and Senegal, considered a gateway to the African continent and one of West Africa’s most popular destinations.  See the Cape Verde Islands, which served as a base for the Portuguese as they rounded Africa over five hundred years ago, and be introduced to life along the Niger River, the 10th largest river in the world, as it flows 2,600 miles to the sea.  Take in this amazing region of lively music, culture, business and rapidly changing lifestyles!

 

Then, in Ethiopia, travel to this country – twice the size of Texas – that is believed to have the longest archaeological record on Earth and to have been present at the dawn of creation.  It’s also been linked to the mysterious Queen of Sheba.  With many areas lush and green, the region has also suffered many droughts, but the economy is still dominated by agriculture.  Featured cities include Harar, Addis Ababa, Gonder and Lalibela, the last featuring 800-year-old Christian churches, some carved into volcanic rock.

 

Future countries to be explored in Worlds Together series include Cuba, Tibet, Ecuador and Colombia. Approximately 25 minutes each, all the titles in World Together DVD series will include a teacher’s guide (also available via download).  To order call 1-800-765-5885 or visit www.master-comm.com.
