Editorial Reviews

Journey through the past, present and future of Earth as HISTORY explores the very real beginnings of our planet, the potentially catastrophic results of our own behavior on it, and the possibility of a world wiped clean of humanity in this stunning collection of HISTORY s most Earth-centric and informative series. Contents include:

HOW THE EARTH WAS MADE:
HISTORY goes back in time, from 4.5 billion years ago to today, to reveal the mystery of geology across the world. Spectacular on-location shooting, evidence from geologists in the field and clear, and dramatic graphics combine to show how the immensely powerful, and at times violent, forces of geology have literally shaped the world we live in.

A GLOBAL WARNING?:
Arctic ice is melting, sea levels are rising, glaciers are shrinking at alarming rates, and the Earth is getting unmistakably warmer. Is this vast, potentially catastrophic, climate change the result of human behavior? HISTORY offers an in-depth study of the science behind this controversial, hot-button issue.

LIFE AFTER PEOPLE:
What would happen if every human being on Earth disappeared? This isn t the story of how we might vanish it is the story of what happens to the world we leave behind. Each episode examines how the very landscape of planet Earth would change in our absence, using cinematic CGI to reveal in scientific detail the fate of every aspect of the man-made world.

BONUS FEATURES: Additional Scenes. Bonus Documentary: Inside the Volcano

5.0 out of 5 stars This package is worth having. October 19, 2011
Each of these three documentaries was well made and the three shows together illustrate the full scope of our planet's history and our place in that history as a species. The above descriptions can tell you the rest. I'm glad to see this material put together in an economic package. I already own each of them separately already. These shows are also excellent classroom materials.

3.0 out of 5 stars Our Planet - Reviewed by Haunted Flower March 30, 2011
The Past, Present, and Future of Earth, a History Channel collection
3 DVD Discs, being released on March 29, 2011

"Our Planet" is a three disc set consisting of three different collections of the History channel's most Earth-centric specials: "How the Earth was Made", "A Global Warning?" and "Life After People" (my personal favorite) to journey through the past, present, and future of Earth.

"How the Earth Was Made" is a 90 minute special that explores how our understanding of the Earth's age went from being based on scripture to reading rocks. These rocks told a tumultuous story of creation beginning in a land of fire with collisions of meteors to its transformation into a water world, the volcanos that formed land, the movement of the tectonic plates, the ice age, and now this warm period that has allowed civilization to bloom in the last ten thousand years. Scientists predict whether or not global warming has a hand in it, our planet will go into another ice age in fifteen thousand years, the tectonic plates will move all the continents together once more and then stop all movement making planet Earth much like Mars.

"A Global Warning?" takes us through the events of the last Ice Age and what potentially would happen in the next Ice Age and if and how we would potentially survive. This documentary investigates extinction events of the past and use them to give clues to the future in times of ice and volcanoes preserving evidence for scientists to research in terms of water levels and carbon dioxide releases.

"Life After People" appears to be THE original special on the subject. I've watched two seasons of the series "Life After People" from the History Channel.

1.0 out of 5 stars Garbage Data and a complete waste of money and time. September 6, 2014
Verified Purchase
Liberal bull__p hawking global warming and climate change when the world hasn't had any change in temperature i in the last 15 years. No wonder they are 3 DVD's for 4 bucks. I threw them away after watching half of disc 2. Garbage, brainwashing courtesy of the history channel.
