Catastrophe

Series 1 - 1. Birth of the Planet

About this programme

1/5. Tony Robinson investigates the cataclysmic events that are believed to have profoundly changed planet Earth and allowed life to appear in such abundance and variety. Using the expertise of astronomers, biologists and scientists, he explores the hypothesis that the collision of a Mars-sized planet with Earth four-and-a-half-billion years ago was the most defining event in history because it created the moon.
