Of all continents on Earth, none preserve the story of the formation of our planet and the evolution of life quite like Australia. Nowhere else can you simply jump in a car and travel back through the entire history of the world. Australia: The Time Traveller's Guide is the untold story of the land Down Under, the one island continent that has got it all. It's the ultimate outback road trip: an exploration of the history of the planet as seen through the mind-altering window of the Australian continent. In this first episode, Dr Richard Smith guides us through the early years of the Earth's formation, from the Hadean period onwards.
