How the Earth Was Made

This insightful documentary series by the BBC focuses on the various stages of our humble little blue planet and best of all, itís created with the laymen in mind. It also goes into the various philosophies and explanations of how the Earth came to be that ultimately has shaped not only our interpretations of the planet but how mankind has shaped it into what it is today.

From the Ice Age to global warning and from humans to miniscule life forms that are now fossils, How the Earth was Made is a well made documentary series that grabs your attention and holds it for the entire 853 minutes worth. At times, How the Earth Was Made is like a police series as they use a variety of scientific techniques to extract the evidence to cement their theories. For me, the two most interesting episodes included Loch Ness, the Driest Place on Earth and Asteroids, all three with different mysteries and dangers.

On DVD, the video quality is widescreen with sharp images, vibrant colours and a decent audio track. It also uses some great computer generated images to help portray the various stages of Earth and ultimately gives us a great snapshot of its chronological history. Although most of the theories in How the Earth was Made are mainstream, there are a few new ideas thrown into the mix as well and if youíre interested in documentary series than there are far worse releases than this.

Donít get me wrong, this series is not just for kids but for anyone interested in our little planet. A very well made series form the History Channel!
