Of all continents on Earth, none preserve the story of the formation of
our planet and the evolution of life quite like Australia. Nowhere else
can you simply jump in a car and travel back through the entire history
of the world. Australia: This series takes you on a rollicking adventure
from the birth of the Earth to the emergence of the world we know today.
Buckle up for a rocky ride down the Road of Time with series host Dr
Richard Smith. Over four one-hour episodes, we meet titanic dinosaurs
and giant kangaroos, sea monsters and prehistoric crustaceans,
disappearing mountains and exploding asteroids. Epic in scope, intimate
in nature, this is the untold story of the land Down Under, the one
island continent that has got it all.
Runtime: 60 minutes
