Earth: The Inside Story

Episode 1 of 1

Trace the geologic story of our home planet, beginning with its formation four-and-a-half-billion years ago and continuing with its evolution to the present. Shot in top geologic hot spots on all seven continents, interspersed with footage of earthquakes and volcanoes from Nepal to Antarctica, this film features a diverse group of leading geologists who reveal the latest thinking about how the Earth works, from the core to the crust and up into the atmosphere. Earth: The Inside Story contrasts Earth's geology with that of other planets in our solar system, dramatically underscoring how unique our planet is, and delves into the unpredictable sequence of geologic and cosmic events that happened before we humans made our appearance on Earth just a few million years ago. Working up to modern times, the film lends scientific perspective to a question people are asking in light of recent news coverage of major earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and extreme weather: Are the Earth's natural systems undergoing a period of intense upheaval?
