The incredible story of the natural forces that have shaped our history
Presented by Professor Iain Stewart
The untold story of history Our planet has amazing power, and yet that's rarely mentioned in our history books. This series tells the story of how the Earth has influenced human history, from the dawn of civilisation to the modern industrial age. It reveals for the first time on television how geology, geography and climate have been a far more powerful influence on the human story than has previously been acknowledged. A combination of epic story telling, visually stunning camerawork, extraordinary locations and passionate presenting combine to form a highly original version of human history.
Discover why societies have succeeded or failed, and how the environment has influenced every aspect of our history from art to industry, religion to war, world domination or collapse. Visiting some of the most iconic places on Earth, How Earth Made Us overturns preconceptions about our civilisations and our cultures to offer a new perspective on who we are today.

I don't want to tell too much about these 2 DVDs, you won't regret watching them yourself.
Like in "Earth", numerous locations around the planet are explored. Makes you understand how history and geology are intertwined, and that history is NOT a list of stupid dates but an interconnection of events where nature plays a significant role.
Iain Stewart is a great presenter, always on the go, touching, tasting, feeling the elements of the Earth. It's a lesson in Geography but certainly not boring.
I don't know why but love the scene with the bubbling oil - it is like boiling treacle and really strange. In fact there are quite a few strange and wonderful things in the series. Like the Arctic Underground Svalbard Seed Vault where they are gathering samples of all the earth's known seeds and grains, like human squirrels. And the Great Pacific Garbage Patch where a 100 million tons of plastic bottles and waste drift across the ocean and cover an area twice the size of the USA. And the Naica Cave which is 50 degrees C , 100% humidity and filled with gigantic, weird but amazing rod-shaped crystals. And Iain Stewart isn't scared to get stuck in - when he visits places like the Naica Cave that are too hostile for humans, he just gets kitted up in protective clothing and breathing gear and wades on in!
All in all the Series is great. Not only is it really interesting and exciting but also it is a beautifully filmed and edited documentary. Great stuff!
