The traditional interpretation of history has focused largely on human factors. Yet the natural environment has also shaped history since the dawn of time. This series reveals for the first time on television how geology, geography and climate have had a far more powerful influence on mankind than has previously been acknowledged. With passionate storytelling and extraordinary HD camerawork, this series combines bold ideas with a new science, geo-determinism, to form an original version of human history. Discover why societies have succeeded or failed, and how the environment has influenced every aspect of our history from art to industry, religion to war, world domination or collapse. This series overturns preconceptions about our nations and our cultures to offer a new perspective on who we are today.
Editor's Note
As produced by and originally aired on the BBC, the epic-length documentary miniseries HOW THE EARTH CHANGED HISTORY rests on an unusual thesis. It argues that various natural forces - including climate, geology and geography - have dramatically guided human history, to a greater degree than many have traditionally thought possible. The program then goes on to discuss the impact of the said forces on societal elements including the success or failure of various civilizations, the nature and presence of art, war and religion, and much more. In building its argument, the program interpolates such elements as on-location footage shot around the world, incisive commentary and epically-scaled storytelling. As a special feature, the package includes "Filming in Extremes," an interview with program creator Iain Stewart.
