How the Earth Was Made (History Channel)
This 90-minute overview of over 4.5 billion years of our planet’s development is another highly informative History Channel film, featuring state-of-the-art computer-generated effects showing the earth during several eons of recorded history. Narrated with appropriate stentorian tones by Edward Herrmann, How the Earth Was Made even projects billions of years into the future to when the earth is no more. It’s amazing to watch, maybe even for those uninterested in science (whose numbers seem to be growing lately).
EXTRAS: Equally interesting 90-minute feature, Inside a Volcano.
