  • CLASH OF THE CONTINENTS

DESCRIPTION

Enter the New Year by going “Back to the Future” in Clash of the Continents, a two-part documentary that casts its lens into the formation of the next great Supercontinent, 250 million years ahead through the eyes of a prodigal explorer who has returned to Earth and is searching for fossilised evidence of Man.

 

The Killers may have sung about a Spaceman not so long ago…Imagine one returning to Earth 250 million years into the future.  Everything he remembers will be gone: wiped away by the tectonic, climatic and geological forces that shape our world.  In its place, a Supercontinent - created as all the Earth’s landmasses drift back together over time.  To find out what happens to man, our spaceman searches for a city like New Orleans, buried in the flood.  There, he may find the fossilised remains of a New Orleans bar, frozen in time when the levees finally failed. Bourbon Street may never be the same again!

 

EPISODE GUIDE

  • Clash Of The Continents: Clash of The Continents, End of Eden
    Most likely, 250 Million years from now the Earth will once again be a Supercontinent, created as all the earth's land masses drift back together over time. Imagine a spaceman looking for evidence of mankind. What would he find? All monuments of man would be torn away and pulverized by tectonic and geological forces. The Pyramids - engulfed in the mountains rising out of the former Mediterranean; Naples - long buried... But maybe … New Orleans, buried beneath the mud of the Mississippi Delta, would rise up in the mountains of the Supercontinent, providing evidence that mankind indeed existed 250 million years ago.

Everything has been wiped away by the geological forces that shape our world. All the landmasses drifted together over time so that now Earth consists of one big Supercontinent. What chance has our prodigal spaceman of finding evidence of Man? He must search for a fossilised city that has survived the ravages of time and natures powerful forces a city like New Orleans, buried beneath the Mississippi Delta. When he finally finds the fossilised evidence he is looking for, he discovers that mankind was responsible for one of the greatest extinction events in the history of the planet...and that he is caught in the middle of another extinction event, one that threatens all life on earth and confronts our Spaceman with his own final destiny
