Overview

Amazing Planet

The National Geographic Channel's documentary series Amazing Planet grew out of a unique and valuable insight: although the Earth radiates beauty and majesty, many of its most incredible developments occur over eons. Taking this into account, the program compresses millions of years of natural evolution into a tight time frame. We witness such spectacles as continental drift, the rise of the Himalayas from the ground, the Ice Age relocation of the poles, and much more - each process recreated onscreen and sped up before our eyes to a point of detectability. The program runs three hours and includes three installments: "Born of Fire," "Ocean Realm" and "Destructive Forces."
