Eurasia Season 1, Episode 4 Apr 10, 2013 $2.99

Europe and Asia; geologically they are part of the same vast landmass, Eurasia. Shaped by a series of collisions, mountain ranges have been pushed up, valleys created and a once great ocean has come and gone. These events created conditions in which great civilizations could flourish and evidence of these events can be found across Eurasia, if you know where to look.

America Season 1, Episode 3 Apr 3, 2013 $2.99

From the bedrock the Empire State Building is built on, to the Spanish empires in South America, the two land masses of North and South America are linked by geology and history. Today North and South America has some of the most spectacular landscapes on earth. They're the product of a violent geological past that shaped an equally turbulent human history.

Australia Season 1, Episode 2 Mar 27, 2013 $2.99

Australia was once part of a super-continent and its deserts were covered in forests. Once joined to Antarctica, it split off and moved northwards into warmer climes, whilst Antarctica became an icy wasteland. Australia's move forced the life forms it supported to adapt and the evidence of this can still be found in its unique wildlife, some of which exist nowhere else on earth.

Africa Season 1, Episode 1 Mar 20, 2013 $2.99

Africa is the cradle of humanity, it is land born from violent, cataclysmic events. Even today, it is still possible to find evidence, sometimes in the most unlikely places, of these events which shaped the Africa we know today and which will, in the future, change it once more.
