It would appear that the earth breathes.

That the earth breathes is confirmed each time a volcano becomes active somewhere in the world. And it is at this precise moment when Guy de Saint Cyr, an amazing geologist and inveterate volcano hugger for the past 40 years, decides to organise an expedition with a small band of neophyte travellers. Each trip provides a chance to share a different human adventure, exchange scientific knowledge and discover fascinating new landscapes.

On the volcanoes around the Pacific Rim: Hawaii and Vanuatu. And in Africa along the Great Rift Valley where the land reveals all sorts of geological exuberance. With Guy as guide, we are going to show, listen to, see and enjoy the earth as you've never before seen it.
