Spectacular on-location footage, evidence from geologists in the field, and clear, dramatic graphics combine in this stunning 13-part series from History™ to show how immensely powerful, and at times violent, forces of geology have formed our planet.

From the Great Lakes to Iceland, the San Andreas Fault to Krakatoa, How the Earth Was Made travels the globe to reveal the physical processes that have shaped some of the most well-known locations and geological phenomena in the world. 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 billions of years.

Experience all 13 episodes of this landmark series for the first time on DVD: San Andreas Fault, The Deepest Place on Earth, Krakatoa, Loch Ness, New York, Driest Place on Earth, Great Lakes, Yellowstone, Tsunami, Asteroids, Iceland, Hawaii, and The Alps.

  • San Andreas Fault
    The San Andreas Fault runs 800 miles through some of the most valuable real estate in the world. Though the southern section hasn't had a significant quake in over 300 years, recent warnings have Los Angeles primed for a destructive quake that could wreak havoc on the city.
  • The Deepest Place on Earth
    Lying seven miles below the surface of the sea, the Marianas Trench is the deepest place on Earth. Investigate the mystery of this strange underwater abyss, where a world of fiery mountains, bizarre marine mud volcanoes, and devastating tsunamis reveal how the deepest scar on Earth's crust was created.
  • Krakatoa
    The 1883 eruption of the Krakatoa volcano unleashed an explosion that was heard more than 2,000 miles away, and triggered a giant 100-foot tsunami that wiped out more than 36,000 people. What made this corner of our planet so dangerous, and could another catastrophic eruption be on the way?
  • Loch Ness
    Loch Ness, home to the legend of the Lock Ness monster, holds more water than any other lake in Britain. It's only 10,000 years old, but billions of years in the making. Trace the lake's extraordinary history and find out if the famed monster could really have survived in its murky waters.
  • New York
    Built on the remains of mountains that 450 million years ago were as tall as the Himalayas, New York is one of the most man-made spaces on the planet. Learn how everything about it - from the height of its skyscrapers to the position of its harbor - is governed by the amazing forces that shaped it.
  • Driest Place on Earth
    Since human records of the area began, some places like the Atacama Desert have never received rain; yet strange bacteria have been discovered living there. Look into the riddle of this South American desert to discover how this extraordinarily dry landscape was created.
  • Great Lakes
    The Great Lakes of North America are the largest expanses of fresh water on the planet. As the lakes settle to their current levels, geologists delve deep in search for clues of their formation, discovering that the Great Lakes' evolutions are far from over.
  • Yellowstone
    Yellowstone National Park houses one of the dangerous geological features on Earth, a hidden super-volcano overdue for a massive eruption. In the past 16.5 million years, the volcano has mysteriously moved hundreds of miles to its present - and active - location. Is this sleeping giant beginning to stir?
  • Tsunami
    Tsunamis are one of the most terrifying forces of nature, destroying all in their path. The December 26th tsunami in 2004 is estimated to have released energy equal to that of 23,000 Hiroshima-type atomic bombs. What are the enormous forces that generate these catastrophic waves deep on the ocean floor?
  • Asteroids
    Until recently geologists could find no evidence that asteroids actually struck the earth. See both the immense riches now known to be the result of these giant boulders from space, and the decimation their violent impacts had on the first people to live in America.
  • Iceland
    The largest and most fearsome volcanic island on the planet, Iceland is being ripped apart by powerful forces lighting its fiery volcanoes. Could these volcanoes cause climatic chaos and devastation across the planet?
  • Hawaii
    Emerging from the center of the Pacific Ocean, the origins of the Hawaiian islands have remained a puzzle for generations. See what clues their history of raging volcanoes, vast landslides, and mega-tsunamis might hold about the inner workings of our planet.
  • The Alps
    Spanning seven countries, the Alps are Europe's most important natural landmark. But how did marine fossils get there, seven thousand feet above sea level? A team of investigators attempts to understand how the Alps evolved, and how long they will be around.

3-20-21 Icelandic volcano erupts near Reykjavik
A volcano has erupted south-west of Iceland's capital Reykjavik, the country's meteorological office says. It says the fissure is about 500-700 metres long (1,640-2,300ft) at Fagradalsfjall on Reykjanes peninsula. The last eruption there was some 800 years ago. Iceland has recorded more than 40,000 earthquakes in the past three weeks. In 2010, the eruption of another volcano, Eyjafjallajokull, brought air traffic to a halt across Europe. However, the eruption of Fagradalsfjall is not expected to spew out much ash, so aviation should not suffer disruption. The Icelandic Meteorological Office says the eruption of Fagradalsfjall began at about 20:45 GMT on Friday, and was later confirmed via webcams and satellite images. A coastguard helicopter was sent to survey the area, about 30km (19 miles) from Reykjavik. It then sent first images of the lava snaking its way down after the eruption. "I can see the glowing red sky from my window," said Rannveig Gudmundsdottir, who lives in Grindavik, 8 km (5 miles) from the eruption. "Everyone here is getting into their cars to drive up there," she said, according to Reuters news agency. A magnitude 3.1 earthquake was recorded 1.2 km from Fagradalsfjall just several hours earlier. Iceland frequently experiences tremors as it straddles two tectonic plates, which are drifting in opposite directions.
