Summary
"Miracle planet is a five-part series that recounts the profound and gripping story of Earth's mysterious evolution. Narrated by Christopher Plummer, it reveals the surprising role that sheer chance has played in the development of life. Over its more than 4-billion-year history, Earth has been home to repeated violent climactic changes, which have caused mass extinctions. And yet, life has survived. In fact, these same catastrophes that devastated life on earth also helped bring about its evolution from the simplest microbes to the complexity and diversity that is found on the planet today. Miracle Planet features location footage, interviews with some of the world's foremost scientists and cutting-edge computer technology."--Container
