EPISODE GUIDE

  • Amazing Planet: Born Of Fire
    Why is the Earth so restless? What causes the ground to shake violently, volcanoes to explode, and great mountain ranges to rise to incredible heights? National Geographic takes viewers on the visual ride of their lives, introducing them to our Amazing Planet in high-def! Hold on tight to our time-machine as we propel you backwards and forwards through the geological history of a little rock we call home - Earth. Episode one brings you up close and personal -above and below the surface -speeding you through our lava driven world. We start at the beginning, in an obscure corner of the universe, where a relatively unremarkable galaxy is showing signs of planetary progress. These initial, violent growing pains are just a precursor to Earth's internal struggle to define itself. Watch how forces at work push and pull to constantly reshape the world around us. Join us for a mesmerizing and eyebrow-singeing adventure- past, present and future - on a place called Eartha truly Amazing Planet.
  • Amazing Planet: Ocean Realm
    Beautiful, bewildering, and mysterious- our oceans dominate our planet. But how did they form and why haven't they evaporated? Starting with the primordial weather burped out of the molten earth and rained back to earth as liquid, National Geographic investigates the awesome power of our water world. Hold on tight as our time-machine propels you backwards and forwards through the geological history of our truly Amazing Planet. We'll journey from the mind-bending beauty of coral reef shallows to the deepest depths of the Mariana Trench while glimpsing everything in between. We'll take a wild ride as the great oceans generate our wildest weather, and we'll even get to take a peak into our ocean's possible future.
  • Amazing Planet: Destructive Forces
    Why do mountains have a triangular shape? How much rain must fall to start a river? How does one grain of sand become an entire dune? Join National Geographic as we show you how our Amazing Planet is sculpted. But hold on tight, because this is no ordinary view. Our time machine will sling shot you back to the formation of Earth's first continent, and then propel you through billions of years of geologic evolution to see the Earth as we know it today. We will release you in raging rapids, twirl you in whirling winds and drop you from the tops of gigantic glaciers. Watch in dazzling high definition how water, wind, and ice erode the earth to sculpt our Amazing Planet.
