The Six Continents Revealed
screenable online: 6 episodes
When the supercontinent Pangea broke up over 200 million years ago, the continents journeyed to the positions they inhabit today, and a story began that shapes the history of humankind to this day.
This six-part series is a geological and cultural-historical biography of the world, revealing how nature shaped and influenced cultures. Find out how abundant natural resources affected the development of societies in Australia and the USA, how the mild climate and fertile soil made Europe a favorable continent, and how the sometimes inhospitable climate in Asia and Africa determined how people lived and thrived.
Realistic 3-D animations take viewers on a journey through time to experience drifting continental plates, sinking land masses, explosive volcanoes, and raging storms. From the air, we view spectacular landscapes, soaring mountains, and arid deserts.
