The television series entitled How the Earth Was Made is a documentary series which focuses on discovering the Earths geological history from the time of its creation and the different stages and ages of progression. The series covered two seasons with thirteen episodes per season with each episode running for forty five minutes. Each episode brings out a new discovery about the history of the biology and geology of the Earth. Discoveries span from the formation of the Earths crust and the atmosphere, the origins and events that led to the formation of land, water, animals such as the dinosaurs and the different periods that characterize each. Season one begins with a focus on the San Andreas Fault located in California. Reason being that at the time, signals from the fault indicate the possibility of a major earthquake. The series proceeds with explorations at the Challenger Deep. The Krakato volcano located in Indonesia and a study of the previous eruptions and possible predictions for future eruptions. It proceeds to discoveries about the history of the geology of Scotland especially the mysteries behind the formation of Loch Ness; New York and the effects of Ice Age glaciers on shaping the land mass. The Atacama Desert which is the driest place on earth, followed by a study of the Great Lakes in America with a focus on analyses of coral reefs, salt mines to trace the origin of the lakes. Season one continues with different discoveries on the events that led to the formation of features such as; the Yellowstone National park, the creation of tsunamis, asteroids and the Earths formation, the history of the geology of Iceland, the Hawaiian chain of mountains as well as the Alps chain of mountains in Europe. Season two also follows the same pattern as season one with discoveries on the history as well as events that led to the formation of certain geological features on the earths surface. It proceeds with discoveries on the origin of the Grand Canyon located in Arizona, Mt Vesuvius and related eruptions, history of the earths formation, the Sahara desert, Yosemite Valley, the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Ring of fire, Mount Everest, Death Valley and ice age era in America.
