Virgin's "One World Atlas" is the newest geographical atlas available on the market and it is surely among one of the best. With a coverage of 235 countries, "One World" provides very accurate political maps in a forever changing world. Each country comes with maps and facts about statistics, meteorology, politics and topography. More than 600 color maps are featured in the atlas with over 1,100 photographs that nearly show every area of the globe.

If you are looking for geographical & cultural data, "One World" is bundled with over 50,000 facts about cities, rivers, mountains and more, and also 10,000 cultural facts.

The overall presentation is a bit unusual compared to others but once you get used to it, it is something you will miss when trying the competitors. For example, twenty-five minutes of cultural music from all over the world will accompany you during your exploration. You will have the possibility to zoom in satellite generated geosphere maps and also to enlarge portions of every photograph you view.

"One World" brings many new features compared to the other similar titles available on the market, and still remains an excellent atlas.

The first interactive encyclopedia of people and cultures, "One Tribe", is now available from Virgin Sound and Vision.

Pip Dann from MTV will be your host assisted by Brad Lavelle during the interactive documentary programs of over one hour. Each continent is reviewed with pictures, music and a total of over 30 minutes of BBC video footage about cultures and people is packed with "One Tribe". There are over 3,000 photographs of around the globe taken by top photographers that can be enlarged as in "One World".

Music is always present in "One Tribe" with a rich selection of music from 15 areas in the world coming from Peter Gabriel's "Real World Music Label". The encyclopedia also features interactive quizzes, 25 theme slide shows with regions, temples, conflicts, etc..., 600 color maps which cover 235 countries and thousands of cultural and geographical facts.


The presentation, like "One World", is nothing we can compare with, because it is so different from what we expect of a multimedia encyclopedia. Its best quality is probably more attractive for the younger audience who might consider the other multimedia encyclopedia too serious. "One Tribe" brings authentic and accurate information while providing the audience with a smell of entertainment.
