Since the Earth's creation 4.5 billion years ago, the planet has been struck by a series of catastrophes, each one pushing life to the edge of extinction. The Earth DVDs show that from disaster comes new life - and while the dominant species on the planet were wiped out, hardier creatures survived and thrived, moving into the vacuum left by the extinction. These creatures in turn took over the planet until they themselves fell victim to yet another mass extinction. The Prehistoric Disasters science DVDs show that Earth's history is rife with prehistoric disasters that have molded the planet and changed the course of evolution. But with each disaster came another leap forward on the evolutionary trail from single celled bacteria to humankind itself. During the Prehistoric Disasters Discovery DVDs you learn that without this series of events, neither mankind nor any of the life we see around us would be here today. 1 Birth of the Planet: 30 million years after Earth's birth a cataclysmic collision almost destroyed the planet completely. Instead this chance collision formed the moon, triggering an extraordinary sequence of events that formed this unique planet teaming with life. 2. Snowball Earth: In the Australian outback a smooth gray stone stands out in the parched red earth. It is over 630 million years old and proves that Australia used to be buried under ice. Could this controversial theory be the key to the evolution of mankind on Earth? 3. Planet of Fire: 250 Million years ago Earth's only continent, Pangea, was a lush oasis swarming with life. Then, a massive extinction wiped out 95% of life on earth. Now, scientists believe they have uncovered the event responsible for the largest extinction in history. 4. Asteroid Strike: Dinosaurs arose as rulers of the Earth 250 million years ago, but their reign soon ended in catastrophe, paving the way for mammals and eventually humans to flourish. Evidence shows that a cosmic impact was responsible, but where did it hit Earth?
