Reviews:

MultiMedia Merchandising, May 1995

"Complementing The Discovery Channel's week-long Ocean Planet TV series and the Smithsonian Institution/Times Mirror exhibit of the same name, this disc takes users to an underwater exploratorium on the ocean floor. Ocean Planet Smithsonian presents the breadth of undersea activity and issues that challenge aquatic life's delicate balance with fully researched texts, cross-referencing, underwater video and photos, and Discovery's trusty 'Ask the Experts' section."
