DVD Description
In this landmark BBC series, Dr Iain Stewart tells the story of how our planet works and how, over the course of 4.6 billion years, it came to be the remarkable planet it is today.
Examining the great forces that shape the earth - volcanoes, the ocean, the atmosphere and ice - the programme 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 time-lapse filmed over many months brings the planet to life.

Offering a balance between dramatic visuals and illuminating facts, specialized imaging and gripping narrative, this ground-breaking series makes global science truly compelling.


Synopsis
Innovative programme that utilises specialist imaging and a compulsive narrative to illustrate the workings of our planet and goes some way into highlighting the reasons why Earth is so special.

So says you, if you look into quantum physics etc you'll maybe not make statements like that since we don't yet totally understand the physics of our universe.

Anyhoo less on that religion argument and more on the discs - wonderful series and a great price!

Does anyone know if there are subtitles? I watched this when it was on TV and thought it was excellent, but found the guy's thick accent a constant distraction.

Says on the amazon link:

Subtitles: English
