Storyline

In each episode, geologist Dr. Iain Stewart explains the effects and importance of a specific force of nature, such as wind or volcanism. He also examines the various ways in which it shapes planet earth itself and influences life on it, often in conjunction with other natural forces, and sometimes with lifeforms, as in the 'apocalyptically' grave case of global warming.

EVERY single human being on the planet should watch this!
28 July 2008 | by (Silicon Valley, California) – See all my reviews

This series of 5 shows was OUTSTANDING! Everyone from a 3rd grader up to an octogenarian will enjoy this and gain new knowledge about the planet on which we reside.

How do waves form? What does the inside of a glacier look like? How did carbon dioxide SAVE our planet? How did the dinosaurs become extinct? Why do the continents shift? Why we are actually living under water (similar to a lobster) and don't even realize it. How did life form? How did our planet form? How did Earth's sister planet Theia create the moon? Why the moon is slowly but surely leaving planet Earth. How Jupiter protects the Earth. Etc, etc, etc.... all of these questions and many, many more are tackled in this program.

The explanation of these events is extremely well presented using actual footage and computer generated images. This is a must see by all.

Happy viewing!
