Synopsis

How the Earth Was Made
How could the planet that was once a simmering sea of radioactive, molten rock evolve to become the universe's greatest refuge for human life? This is the question asked by filmmaker Peter Chin as he descends deep into the volcanoes that formed the planet's crust and dives to the bottom of the ocean to explore the first evidence of life on Earth. Beginning in the distant past and stretching into the far-off future, this documentary utilizes cutting edge special effects and breathtaking footage from remote locations in order to find out not only where life came from, but where it could be heading as well. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Life After People
For anyone who ever wondered what would happen to our planet should mankind simply vanish, the filmmakers at The History Channel offer a fictional examination of a world where all human activity has ceased, and Mother Nature returns to reclaim what is rightfully hers. A telling visit to the abandoned villages surrounding Chernobyl offers a haunting look at formerly-populated areas completely overrun by flora and fauna just twenty-two years after a nuclear disaster sent citizens fleeing in fear, while a trip to a the islands just off the coast of Maine guides viewers through a series of ghosts towns that have been virtually swallowed up by the encroaching nature. While the pyramids of Egypt could stand forever, would the structures of the modern era have the same, seemingly infinite, structural integrity? Scientists, scholars, and experts in biology, ecology, botany, engineering, archeology, and climatology offer informed opinions on how long the traces of mankind would remain, and vivid computer graphics allow us to witness the unthinkable with our own eyes. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

A Global Warning?
Airing originally on The History Channel, A Global Warming? analyzes the various catastrophic occurrences that will transpire assuming climate change is allowed to progress unchecked by human behavior. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
