The earth's continents are instantly recognisable. These iconic landmasses seem permanent and unchanging, yet they are merely the wreckage of a much larger long-lost supercontinent - Pangaea. In this stunning four part series Professor Iain Stewart uncovers the evidence for this ancient past. He reveals how the world around us is full of clues - in the rocks, the landscapes and even the animals that tell how the land we live on was created. He shows how the defining moments of their formation have fundamentally shaped each of our continents' characters - transforming evolution, forging their incredible economic riches and changing the course of human history.
