How the Earth was Made - Series 1 & 2

Synopsis
This pack contains all 26 programmes from the two series of History Channel programmes. Spectacular on-location footage, evidence from geologists in the field and clear, dramatic graphics combine to reveal how the immensely powerful - and at times violent - forces of geology have formed our planet. From the Great Lakes to Iceland, the San Andreas Fault to Krakatoa, the first series travels the globe to reveal the physical processes that have shaped some of the best known locations and geological phenomena in the world. In Season Two we go back 4.5 billion years, peeling back layers of rock, filling up river canyons, parting the oceans and levelling mountains and volcanoes to reveal the origins of some of the most well-known locations and geographical phenomena in the world. With rocks as their clues and volcanoes, ice sheets and colliding continents as their suspects, scientists launch a forensic investigation that will help viewers visualise how the earth has evolved and formed over billions of years.
