Planet of Volcanoes

  • UHD

We meet the people and wildlife that live alongside the planet’s volcanoes to reveal how these explosive geographical formations affect life on Earth. At the heart of this story is a ground-breaking expedition to one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Biologist Jens Kallmeyer wants to find out how extremophiles – organisms that thrive in extreme environments and are the toughest life forms on earth – survive next to a boiling lake of lava in Vanuatu.

Despite their destructive nature, we discover that volcanoes are actually the life-givers of our planet.
