Earth Science
Understanding our World


These programs were produced for the American educational market between 10-15 years ago.

Their format is to give students an overall appreciation of the subject under discussion, rather than focus on a single case study. Thus a program on volcanoes will show all the major types of volcanoes, as well as information on how and why they erupt.

Although aspects of these programs are a little dated, they nevertheless provide a solid revision of their subject. All titles are presented with background notes and focus student questions that reinforce many of the terms and concepts raised during the program.

All programs in this section are primarily suitable for ages 11-16.
