Deep Earth

The first episode explores the relationship between the deep Earth and the development of human civilisation, visiting an extraordinary crystal cave in Mexico, dropping down a hole in the Iranian desert and crawling through seven thousand year old tunnels in Israel. The exploration reveals that throughout history our ancestors were strangely drawn to fault lines; areas which connect the surface with the deep interior of the planet. These fault lines gave access to important resources, but also brought with them great danger.
