Faces of Earth (2007) Review
(More customer reviews)This is another of my favorites. I have studied Geology and I love these videos about our wonderful planet.
This is close to "How the Earth is Made" series but I think more in depth. I would not hesitate to recommend this video to libraries,
schools and your home.
This video is about Earth showing us her true faces: plate techtonics, ice ages, earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes, the deep ocean and more. This is an absolutely fascinating video. Then there is animal and ocean life and US!
I highly recommend this video--you won't regret it!

Explosive volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, floods and even human beings contribute to the constant changes on the Earth's surface. Uncover the deep mysteries of our planet with top geologists in Faces Of Earth. Using state-of-the-art computer animation and stunning photography, these four in-depth, compelling programs explore how these forces shape the Earth and how, in turn, the Earth has shaped human evolution.Includes: Building the Planet Witness the explosion that formed planet Earth, and travel back in time to explore the evolution of the Earth we know today. New technologies allow today's geoscientists to strip back the layers of Earth to see what previously could only be imagined. Shaping the Planet Earthquakes rumble, volcanoes explode, land is stretched and pulled like taffy - pushing up mountains and creating new oceans. Special effects and advanced animation techniques take viewers inside tectonic events to find out why the ground constantly shifts under our feet. Assembling America The land we see today was shaped over hundreds of millions of years. Guided by leading geoscientists, we unravel the mysteries of continent-building and the almost unimaginable span of geologic time. Human World Beginning with the dawn of agriculture, mankind has moved from simply reacting to Earth's processes to shaping the planet. But are we pushing too hard and upsetting this delicate balance?
