HISTORY peels back layers of rock, fills up river canyons, parts the oceans, and levels mountains and volcanoes as How the Earth Was Made goes back in time, from 4.5 billion years ago to today, to reveal the mystery of geology across the world. Spectacular on-location shooting, evidence from geologists in the field, and clear, dramatic graphics combine in this stunning series to show how the immensely powerful, and at times violent, forces of geology have literally shaped the world we live in. From the Siberian Traps to Mt. St. Helens, Death Valley to the Sahara Desert, How the Earth Was Made investigates the fascinating and iconic geological formations that continue to captivate us. Visual effects provide viewers with X-ray vision into how these formations, including Mount Everest and the Grand Canyon, came into being, what they look like inside, and how their layers were added to end up with what we know today.
