Investigate with HISTORY™ the origins of some of the most well-known locations and geological phenomena in the world. From the Great Lakes to Iceland, the San Andreas Fault to Krakatoa, How the Earth Was Made travels the globe to reveal the geological processes that have shaped our planet. Spectacular on-location shooting, evidence from geologists in the field, and clear, dramatic graphics combine in this stunning 13-part series to roll back the millennia and show how the immensely powerful, and at times violent, forces of geology have literally shaped the world we live in. With rocks as their clues and volcanoes, ice sheets and colliding continents as their suspects, scientists launch a forensic investigation that will help viewers visualize how the earth has evolved and formed over millions of years. Locations covered in How the Earth Was Made include Hawaii – a remote island chain brought to being by the movement of super heated magma deep within the earth, to the Marianas Trench, a spot in the sea deeper than Mount Everest is high, where the ocean floor disappears into the centre of the earth.
New York is one of the most man-made spaces on the planet, but everything from the height of the skyscrapers to the way the subway was constructed to the position of the harbor is governed by the extraordinary forces that ultimately shaped this city. You can tell the geology of Manhattan at a glance by looking at the skyline. The skyscrapers of Midtown and Downtown are built on hard granite; the low-rise buildings in between are built on a soft, gravelly soil left over from the Ice Age. In this episode of How the Earth Was Made, viewers learn how New Jersey and North Africa were neighbors 250 million years ago, how the rocks New York are built on are the remains of mountains that 450 million years ago were as tall as the Himalayas, and how Long Island is covered in rubble that dumped as ice sheets retreated 10,000 years ago
