Nature Documentary hosted by Corey Johnson, published by History Channel in 2010 - English narrationInformation
From the Big Bang to today, explore Earth\'s 4.5-billion-year history of unimaginable timescales, incredible life forms, radical climates, and mass extinctions. Spectacular on-location shooting, evidence from geologists in the field, and clear, dramatic graphics combine in Season Two of this stunning series from HISTORY to show how immensely powerful, and at times violent, forces of geology have formed our planet.
This season, HOW THE EARTH WAS MADE goes back in history-- from 4.5 billion years ago to today-- peeling back layers of rock, filling up river canyons, parting the oceans, and levelling mountains and volcanoes to investigate the origins of some of the most well-known locations and geological 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 visualize how the Earth has evolved and formed over millions of years.
From a once seething, hellish mass of molten rock to the world that inhabits life today, take a rollercoaster ride through the entire history of Planet Earth. Its 4.5 billion year epic, a story of unimaginable timescales, earth-shattering forces, incredible life forms, radical climates and mass extinctions. Discover how the continents were formed, canyons were carved, and why the world\'s animals live where they do.
The series examines some of the most well-known locations and geological phenomena in the world, including the Grand Canyon, Vesuvius, Sahara, the birth of the Earth, Yosemite, Death Valley, Everest, and the Pacific Ring of Fire. Using interviews with experts, geological evidence, and computer generated graphics, the series explains in an easy-to-understand way how those locations and geological phenomena have been shaped by the immensely powerful, and at times violent, forces of geology.
Experience all 13 episodes of this landmark series for the first time on Blu-ray.
Produced by Pioneer TV For HISTORY / A & E Television Networks1) The Grand Canyon
The relatively tiny Colorado River had substantial help in carving out a chasm as wide and deep as the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon is nearly 300 miles long and over a mile deep. You could stack four Empire State buildings one on top of the other and they still wouldn\'t reach the lip of the Canyon. As vast tectonic plates clash and grind against one another a giant plateau has been pushed up over a mile in the air. The Colorado river, flowing from high in the Rockies and carrying a thick load of sediment, has carved an amazing canyon in the rising plateau. The story is so complex and the evidence so scarce that it took geologist decades to unravel the mysteries.Screenshots
