This show presents a dramatic and different  way of looking at climate and climate change.  A visually spectacular story unfolds on a global scale, revealing how the climate first evolved and how it has been endlessly transformed by weather patterns, Ice Ages and the appearance of new life forms.

Recent, man-made climate change will be seen in the context of changes in climate that have occurred throughout the Earth’s history and by looking closely at our planet’s place in the Solar System.

Floods or droughts, rain or shine, hot or cold; it all occurs within the remarkably thin veneer spanning the Earth – the Atmosphere.

Climate: the phenomenon that makes Life on Earth possible.
