The Story of Our World.
|This landmark series uses specialist imaging and compelling narrative to tell the life story of our planet, how it works, and what makes it so special. Examining the great forces that shape the Earth - volcanoes, the ocean, the atmosphere and ice - the program explores their central roles in our planet's story. How do these forces affect the Earth's landscape, its climate, and its history? CGI gives the audience a ringside seat at these great events, while the final episode brings together all the themes of the series and argues that Earth is an exceptionally rare kind of planet - giving us a special responsibility to look after our unique world. This is a series that shows the Earth in new and surprising ways. Extensive use of satellite imagery reveals new views of our planet, while timelapse filmed over many months brings the planet to life. Offering a balance between dramatic visuals and illuminating facts, this ground-breaking series makes global science truly compelling.|
Editor's NoteIf Earth could tell its own story, what would it say? And what advice would it give us about the future? This BBC documentary explores the history of the blue planet, exploring the central forces that continue to shape its destiny: the atmosphere, oceans, volcanoes, ice, and the universe around it. Exquisite computer graphics help bring to life this fascinating science program that illuminates the planet's past, present, and uncertain future in the cosmos.
