Inside-Outside

Inside-Outside

INSIDE-OUTSIDE, the first program in the 'Home Place' series, explores the problem of recognizing and understanding ecosystems from within their boundaries. Images of Earth from space have provided us with a view from outside, making possible a new, more complete perspective. This program discards the human-centered concept of environment, replacing it with a more universal idea of ecosystems. The ecosphere concept is introduced as an alternate world view, in which Earth itself is conceived as a living organism, as an ecological being.

'The video does an excellent job of illustrating all of this with the help of some wonderful photography and a clear narrative...I recommend this video for middle school students through senior adults.' Science Books and Films

'Presented effectively and...well-made...Recommended.' Video Librarian

'Presented in a style particularly well-suited for younger audiences, this film introduces the concept of an ecosphere, the Earth.' Jeffery A. Thomas, Northland Community College

'This excellent series forces the viewer to take a hard look at our exploitive, damaging role as humans in the Earth's ecosystems...The narrative is easy to understand, yet it addresses these important issues in a sophisticated and thorough manner...highly recommended...an appropriate addition to public, school, and academic libraries.' Rue Herbert, University of South Florida, MC Journal

'As much philosophy as science went into these thought-provoking programs. The end result is an impelling video series of value in any library collection.' Teacher Librarian
