Origins: Battle for the Planet

2004 NR

Paleontologist Des Collins leads this exploration into the beginnings of advanced life on the planet, which can fortunately be studied by visiting primitive shores where creatures that lived hundreds of millions of years ago still flourish today. Collins's destination: Burgess Shale in Canada's Rocky Mountains. Advanced computer technology enhances the discovery as viewers get close to some of the most fascinating small beasts ever.
