Detailed Information:
A highly acclaimed PBS earth science/environmental series, Journey to Planet Earth helps students understand the most critical and timely issues facing the natural sciences in the 21st century. Through an interdisciplinary approach, these programs reach beyond the physical sciences and draw connections to politics, economics, sociology, and history. Each episode features four to five thematically related stories on topics such as the loss of farmland to urbanization, human health, river pollution, and inadequate housing and water in the world's four largest cities. Though photographed on different continents and focusing on different sets of problems, audiences come to see why all of these stories are connected, providing a dramatic mosaic of how the Earth works as an interrelated system.
