The story is one of unimaginable timescales, earth-shattering forces, incredible life-forms, radical climates and mass extinctions. Through the use of CGI, and the stories of the ground-breaking scientists whose discoveries have revolutionized our understanding of earth’s geologic history and the changing ratios of land to water on the globe, the program plots the twisting course of Earth’s amazing journey.
