The Atlantic Coast

DVD - 2007
Rate this:
The Atlantic Coast sweeps us eastward -- and backward: east to the Atlantic coast, and hundreds of millions of years back in time, to tell the story in three dramatic chapters of how tectonic upheaval pummelled and pounded eastern North America, until the shape we recognize today finally emerged. Along the way, viewers are invited to travel over a long-vanished ocean, forefather of the Atlantic. We linger over thousands of fossils whose discovery once solved a problem that baffled Darwin, and witness graphic proof of how North America and Africa were once bound together. Our journey takes us to Newfoundland where we explore the Tablelands mountain range before moving on to Nova Scotia and then to Morocco seeking the link between mass extinction and the violent break-up of a super-continent. Tectonic movement lies at the heart of this dramatic story of volcanic outpourings, massive rifting of continents and ultimately, the bursting forth of a new, young ocean, the Atlantic. -- Container.
