Who is the most vulnerable: Earth or Mankind?

In this spectacular new five part series, geologist Dr Iain Stewart explores the great forces that have come together to shape our world. It's taken four and a half billions years to turn the Earth from a barren rock to the world we know today – a planet full of extraordinary landscapes and a home to life. It's been an incredible journey of catastrophe and renewal.

Using majestic photography, stunning graphics, jaw dropping locations and Iain’s enthusiastic presenting style, this is a thrilling exploration of nature’s most compelling phenomena. At the heart of the series are big ideas; the way that everything on the planet comes together to make our planet a home for life; the extraordinary flukes that have been so critical in shaping our world, and the role of disasters in driving the course of evolution.
