The Fate Of The Earth
17 January 2011 | by souther02See all my reviews

There is a different series that was released by the same name in 2006. It was written by David Attenborough and hosted by Sigourney Weaver. The other documentary was very well-received by the public and used a lot of computer graphics. Was probably enjoyed much by the very young as well as the older crowd who like Attenborough or anything relevant to nature and science.

The series under review here was released in 1986 and was first aired on PBS. It received its funding from several sources including a TV station in Cincinatti. A lot of research went into this documentary series and I enjoyed it. There is tons of knowledge and information in the show, yet I did not view it as a classroom lecture. The seven programs were all in- depth but fascinating and intriguing. Anyone who has seen the programs have their favorites I'm sure. The first program talks about plate techtonics and shows footage of Japan after a strong earthquake, and all the program topics relate to the oceans, geology, solar science, and the precious metals of the earth. Not only science itself the focus of the series, but the series goes up close to the researches and scientists in the laboratories. All narrated by Richard Kiley. A very good way to learn about earth, and the knowledge is actually still fresh and new.
