With a team of scientists, National Geographic investigates the dynamic process of Colliding Continents, by examining the forces deep below the Earth's surface that are constantly reshaping our world. These powerful forces rip vast land masses apart and send them smashing into one another - causing natural disasters, such as tsunamis and earthquakes, and creating awe-inspiring landscapes, like mountains and canyons.||43:52||$1.99||View In iTunes|

where are the new episodes?
I'm a Spanish teacher and I've been telling my kids for years that the mighty Aztecs were conquered so quickly because the Spanish brought diseases that were more devastating than any of their weapons or skills. Naked Science did a fantastic episode on "What killed the Aztecs?" but it's not on here! It was one of those episodes that uses science to to back up a hypothesis that challenges conventional wisdom on a topic. I mean, everybody "knows" that the Spanish brought "the plague".... and in this episode they challenge that idea with "evidence" of a native hemorrhagic native virus.. similar to the hantavirus. They presented such a good counter to the conventional knowledge that it was the plague... that I'd like to buy it and watch it again!!! Come on iTunes!
Naked Science...decent content but terrible quality
Compared with numerous other programs like this available on iTunes, the quality is terrible. Save your money!
Naked Science is cool?????
This is a good series if you like to learn new and interesting facts about the planet and universe in which we ALL inhabit, instead of dumbing yourself down with all the reality tv shows out there. I especially like episodes 2-7,9,11,12. others are good as well, but not as interesting to me as they might be to you. I'm not sure if this season is done yet, but I would like to see a few new episodes on here that are not, specifically the show about Hubble and about the fate of Earth. As for the screen quality, I guess it could be better, but what are you expecting, it's not a movie, it doesn't have to be 1080i or p for it to be worth buying, some people are dumb. *****IF YOU LIKE IT, GET IT, IT'S WORTH THE PRICE!!!!******
