Tibet: The Ice Mother

Synopsis
Looks at the attempts of scientists to figure out why the earth, a warm place for 200 million years, started to cool, until ice sheets covered Europe and North America to a depth of a mile. They have found that the answer is part of a much larger story, one that may connect the movement of whole continents with the evolution of humans.
