 How the Earth Changed History

  Review by Suzanne 7/15/10

I'll admit up front that I don't like non-fiction shows on TV, and I particularly don't like nature shows. I find them very boring. In school I used to fall asleep whenever the teacher would show a film, whether it was about history, nature, or whatever, so I never liked the History Channel or those others.

However, many people love these types of things, and those channels.  And they make many useful films for educational purposes.  They have definitely improved in the way they make educational films. They are way more interesting than they used to be. They have bigger budgets, they make things seem more interesting, they have good music, and they pick an interesting narrator.

This is a fascinating film about how the elements of the earth, such as water and wind, have created "history" in the earth.  They use many visual effects, as well as show nature scenes, to show rather than just tell.  Okay, so you might nod off anyway, but if you like this kind of thing or have to learn it, this is the best way to do it.

The narrator for this movie is Iain Stewart.  He says everything in his thick Scottish brogue as if it's the most fascinating thing he's ever heard.  It's both amusing and interesting.  He is a geologist, so he knows what he's talking about when he discusses the earth.

People of any age should enjoy this, and of course it's very family friendly.  It also has an interview with Mr. Stewart.
