[edit] Information

Imagine a world where North America and Africa are one super-continent, where a mountain range the size of the Himalayas covers the Great Lakes region, and the tropical saltwater sea covers the ground. This is Canada, our land - in another time. What do we really know about the history of the earth below our feet? Geologic Journey blends modern science, spectacular footage and animation, and personal stories from people driven by the geologic wonder to document the incredible and sometimes surprising history of Canada's landscape.

With spectacular aerial photography, Geologic Journey breathes relevance into ancient geology. Featuring renowned scientists, advanced scientific research and specially designed animation, the series traces the extraordinary history of our continent to show that the new world is in fact very, very old.
