Picture the most powerful and destructive megastorm ever to hit the planet: a super hurricane that reached 20 miles high with winds approaching 700 mph. Was it responsible for wiping out 75 percent of the Earth's population some 65 million years ago? Or consider a volcano unleashing a cloud of gas, ash and debris so impenetrable that the sun's warming rays were unable to reach the planet; many believe such a volcanic winter triggered an ice age. Was Great Britain once connected to Europe, then cut off by a violent storm and flood that created the English Channel?
These and other possible supersized disasters from our ancient past, including a gigantic tsunami and terrifying comet storm, are all re-created by HISTORY in this 2-DVD set. With the help of cutting-edge computer-generated imagery, viewers will see what these storms would have looked like and how they may have totally changed the face and population of Planet Earth.
