We’ve all heard about the Ice Age, a period of time in the Earth’s history where the world was nothing but a frozen ball populated by those creatures adept enough to adapt and evolve to meet the demands of such a drastic temperature shift.
But how did it happen? What types of creatures thrived while others became extinct? And what mysteries still remain about this era that still baffle scientists to this day? This insightful collection of specials, Frozen World: The Story of the Ice Age, is here to help answer those burning (frosty?) questions.
What are the specials? Thanks for asking.
Clash of the Cavemen
Two human species. One continent. Only one can survive. It’s Cro-Magnon Man versus Neanderthal Man in a battle for survival of the fittest. Whoever wins takes control and becomes the dominant human race. This really interesting special explores the multi-faceted history of how our species evolved from the Ice Age to today.
Blame it on Toba! How did one super volcano cause a worldwide apocalyptic weather-changing event that changed the planet forever? Could it happen again? This special explores the history and possibility of a future volcanic winter on Earth.
Journey to 10,000 B.C.
What was life really like in 10,000 B.C.? Well, we’ll never really know, but this special explores what it more than likely was like during that time period. And what exactly is a Fullerine?
Mega Disasters: Mega Freeze
Are we on the verge of an abrupt climate change that could threaten our very survival? Scientists believe it’s very possible, and that a shift in the Earth may be closer than we may think. You’ll want to get that storm shelter equipped with plenty of firewood after seeing this special.
This is a very interesting and educational set of documentaries that I highly recommend!
