JOURNEY THROUGH THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE OF EARTH AS HISTORY® EXPLORES THE BEGINNINGS OF OUR PLANET, THE POTENTIALLY CATASTROPHIC RESULTS OF OUR BEHAVIOR ON IT, AND THE POSSIBILITY OF A WORLD WIPED CLEAN OF HUMANITY
This March, Join HISTORY® for a whirlwind trip from the ancient past to the potentially post-human future with the fascinating three-DVD set, Our Planet: The Past, Present and Future of Earth. A stunning collection of the Network's most Earth-centric and informative series, it includes the following programs, along with additional scenes and a bonus documentary "Inside the Volcano":
How The Earth Was Made -- History goes back in time, from 4.5 billion years ago to today, to reveal the mystery of geology across the world. Spectacular on-location shooting, evidence from geologists in the field and clear, and dramatic graphics combine to show how the immensely powerful, and at times violent, forces of geology have literally shaped the world we live in.
A Global Warning? -- Arctic ice is melting, sea levels are rising, glaciers are shrinking at alarming rates, and the Earth is getting unmistakably warmer. Is this vast, potentially catastrophic, climate change the result of human behavior? HISTORY offers an in-depth study of the science behind this controversial, hot-button issue.
Life After People -- What would happen if every human being on Earth disappeared? This isn't the story of how we might vanish – it is the story of what happens to the world we leave behind. Each episode examines how the very landscape of planet Earth would change in our absence, using cinematic CGI to reveal – in scientific detail – the fate of every aspect of the man-made world.
