Description
Using breathtaking imagery and specialist imaging, this nearly four-hour series on two discs describes an amazing planet whose story is full of cataclysmic disasters, 11th-hour coincidences that have saved it from extinction, and an astonishing power to continually regenerate itself. In the tradition of David Attenborough's celebrated natural histories, the engaging Scottish geologist Iain Stewart climbs into the crater of an active volcano in Ethiopia, jets into the stratosphere, climbs the frozen crests of the Alps, races the tide at the Amazon basin, and dives into underwater caverns in Mexico to examine the great forces—volcanoes, the ocean, the atmosphere, and ice—that have shaped planet Earth.
