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.

Simply Stunning
5 June 2012 | by stuartplunkettSee all my reviews

In my view Dr Iain Stewart is greatly under estimated. He has a wonderful persona and in this particular series comes across as good as Attenborough.

Earth: Power of the planet is quite possibly one of the greatest TV series I have ever seen. It takes us on a journey through the complex development of our planet, all the way from its explosive birth to the present time. It is exciting, yet sobering at times and explains everything on a level anyone can understand. Each of the 5 episodes gripped me from start to finish and I never get bored of watching them over and over.

Its the kind of series that proves how lucky mankind are to even be in existence and that as complex the procedures it took to get us here, nature has the power to quickly take it away in a blink of an eye.

10/10 for me!
