Visit the ghostly villages surrounding Chernobyl (abandoned by humans after the 1986 nuclear disaster), travel to remote islands off the coast of Maine to search for abandoned towns that have vanished from view in only a few decades, then head beneath the streets of New York to see how subway tunnels may become watery canals. A visual journey, LIFE AFTER PEOPLE is a thought provoking adventure that combines movie-quality visual effects with insights from experts in the fields of engineering, botany, ecology, biology, geology, climatology, and archeology to demonstrate how the very landscape of our planet will change in our absence.

Narrator: What would happen if every human being on Earth disappeared? At some point in the future, this could be the fate of our planet. This isn't the story of how we might vanish, it is the story of what happens to the world we leave behind.

Haunting upcoming future!!!
13 March 2019 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

After Cable TV allowed many kinds of channels driven to all ages and so wide range of entertainments, History, Discovery and Natgeo has been searching for most craziest matters ever had imagined, then appears a offbeat subject to fill the program schedule, this first episode around 90 minutes was base from an upcoming series, this interesting subject deserves to think about it, how would be the world if all mankind disappeared somehow, it's doesn't matter at all, but about the Cities, the buildings, the bridges, the subways, anyway all over the world, straight up l suppose apart how bizarre it could be, this is true and exciting possibility to discuss even if it faces as rarely possible to happen in near future, indeed a valuable Doc!!


First watch: 2016 / How many: 2 / Source: DVD / Rating: 8.5
