EARTH REVEALED: EARTH’S INTERIOR: THE SEA FLOOR – (1992 – 60 MINS, VHS)
Oil wells do more than just produce oil — they serve as windows to Earth’s interior. This program introduces the topic of geophysics, exploring methods of studying what lies beneath Earth’s surface. Geophysicists use seismic wave studies, variations in temperature, magnetic fields, gravity, and computer simulations to create models of deep structures.
The mysteries of the ocean floor lie hidden under enormous pressure and total darkness. This program looks at the research submersibles and indirect methods used to study the bottom of the sea, providing a glimpse of volcanic activity, formations such as the continental shelf and mid-ocean ridges, and life forms that thrive at extreme depths.
EARTH REVEALED: THE BIRTH OF A THEORY; PLATE DYNAMICS – (1992 – 60 MINS, VHS)
In the 1960s, earth scientists developed the theory of plate tectonics. This program traces the development of plate tectonics, beginning with the contributions and methods of geologist Alfred Wegener. Sea-floor spreading, continental drift, paleomagnetism, and the primordial supercontinent Pangaea are some of the topics covered.
This program examines the movement and interaction of tectonic plates, which account for a vast array of geologic formations and phenomena — from California’s San Andreas Fault to the Rift Valley of eastern Africa. The program covers convergent boundaries, subduction, hotspots, and the debate over what drives plate motion.
EARTH REVEALED: MOUNTAIN BUILDING; EARTH’S STRUCTURES – (1992 – 60 MINS, VHS)
This program erodes the myth of the mountain as a solid, permanent structure. Animations are used to illustrate the process of orogeny (mountain building) through accretion and erosion, as well as the role of plate tectonics, the rock cycle, and how different types of rock are formed in the course of mountain building.
A visit to the Grand Canyon lays the foundation for this exploration of rock layers and deformation. The program covers sedimentation, major structures, the methods used to examine them, and how petroleum may be trapped inside them. It also looks at tectonic force and the different types of stress involved in the formation of geologic structures.
EARTH REVEALED: VOLCANISM; INTRUSIVE IGNEOUS ROCKS – (1992 – 60 MINS, VHS)
Volcanoes provide clues about what is going on inside Earth. Animations illustrate volcanic processes and how plate boundaries are related to volcanism. The program also surveys the various types of eruptions, craters, cones and vents, lava domes, magma, and volcanic rock. The 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens serves as one example.
Most magma does not extrude onto Earth’s surface but cools slowly deep inside Earth. This magma seeps into crevices in existing rock to form intrusive igneous rocks. Experts provide a graphic illustration of this process and explain the types and textures of rocks such as granite, obsidian, and quartz. Once again, plate tectonics is shown to be involved in the process.
EARTH REVEALED: WEATHERING AND SOILS; MASS WASTING – (1992 – 60 MINS, VHS)
The Cleopatra’s Needle obelisk in New York City’s Central Park is severely weathered after only 75 years, whereas the dry climate of Egypt has preserved similar structures in that country for millennia. This program shows how weather, climate, chemicals, temperature, and type of substrate factor into rock and soil erosion. Environmental connections are also considered.
Anyone undertaking a building project must understand mass wasting — the downslope movement of earth under the influence of gravity. Various factors in mass wasting, including the rock’s effective strength and pore spaces, are discussed, as are different types of mass wasting such as creep, slump, and landslides. Images of an actual landslide illustrate the phenomenon.
EARTH REVEALED: SEDIMENTARY ROCKS – THE KEY TO PAST ENVIRONMENTS; METAMORPHIC ROCKS – (1992 – 60 MINS, VHS)
This program returns to the Grand Canyon: its exposed layers of sedimentary rock allow scientists to peer into the geologic past. The movement of sediment and its deposition are covered, and the processes of lithification, compaction, and cementation that produce sedimentary rocks are explained. Organic components of rock are also discussed.
The weight of a mountain creates enough pressure to recrystallize rock, thus creating metamorphic rocks. This program outlines the recrystallization process and the types of rock it can create — from claystone and slate to schist and garnet-bearing gneiss. The relationship of metamorphic rock to plate tectonics is also covered.
EARTH REVEALED: RUNNING WATER – RIVERS/EROSION/DEPOSITION; LANDSCAPE EVOLUTION – (1992 – 60 MINS, VHS)
Rivers are the most common land feature on Earth and play a vital role in the sculpting of land. This program shows landscapes formed by rivers, the various types of rivers, the basic parts of a river, and how characteristics of rivers — their slope, channel, and discharge — erode and build the surrounding terrain. Aspects of flooding are also discussed.
The Colorado River is a powerful geologic agent — powerful enough to have carved the Grand Canyon. This program focuses on how such carving takes place over time, looking at erosion and deposition processes as they relate to river characteristics and type of rock. The evolution of rivers is covered, along with efforts to prevent harmful consequences to humans.
EARTH REVEALED: GROUND WATER; WIND, DUST AND DESERTS – (1992 – 60 MINS, VHS)
Approximately three-quarters of Earth’s surface is covered by water. But most fresh water comes from underground. Topics of this program include aquifers, rock porosity and permeability, artesian wells, the water table, cave formation, sinkholes, and how groundwater may become contaminated.
Land in arid climates is shaped in particular ways. This program shows how deserts are defined by infrequent precipitation and how desertification relates to proximity to the equator, proximity to mountains, and ultimately plate tectonics. Images of landscapes illustrate how wind creates features such as dunes, playas, blow-outs, and even oases.
EARTH REVEALED: GLACIERS; WAVES, BEACHES AND COASTS – (1992 – 60 MINS, VHS)
Many of the world’s most beautiful landscapes were made by glaciers. This program shows how, explaining glacial formation, structure, movement, and methods of gouging and accumulating earth. The program provides images of glaciers and glacial landforms such as moraines, and discusses how study of glaciers may help us understand ice ages and the greenhouse effect.
This program shows the dynamic interaction of two geologic agents: rocky landmasses and the energy of the ocean. Aspects of waves — their types, parts, movement, and impact on the shore — are illustrated. The program also covers shoreline characteristics, currents, sea barriers, tides, and how the greenhouse effect could impact sea level and coastal lands.
EARTHQUAKE: A NOVA SPECIAL – (2007 – 56 MINS, VHS)

SECOND NATURE: BUILDING FORESTS IN WEST AFRICA’S SAVANNAHS – (1996 – 42 MINS, DVD)
West Africa’s transition zone is one of the world’s most ecologically fragile areas and is widely assumed to be experiencing a deforestation crisis. For a century experts have held villagers responsible. But recent research in Guinea shows the exact opposite. Instead of disappearing, forest cover has in fact been increasing – due to farmers’ skill in transforming savanna into forest. This video explains how the research team’s anthropological research combined with oral histories, archives, and aerial and satellite images to produce these findings. It gives voice to villagers and shows how easily experts can reach wrong conclusions if they ignore local knowledge and history.

It traces their growing realization that despite “supply side” business claims, increased profits don’t necessarily “trickle down” to working Americans.
GLOBAL ASSEMBLY LINE – (1986 – 58 MINS, VHS)
In an informative and shocking documentary that bangs America’s dormant collective conscience on its head, director Lorraine Gray films underpaid foreign workers around the world to highlight the exploitative nature of American companies willing to pay next to nothing in wages in order to raise their profits. Workers in countries like South Korea, Taiwan, Mexico, and the Philippines are paid as low as 5% of the hourly wage in the U.S. Meanwhile, corporate executives justify their practices with ignorant platitudes, while American laborers — such as those in the Tennessee town abandoned by the Philips Corporation — are joining the growing ranks of the unemployed. Filipino workers are unhappy with their working conditions (not exactly union standards) and of course would like to have decent wages. Missing are some statistics on how many jobs have been lost in the U.S. and how many jobs created in Third-World countries, as the balance continues to tip away from U.S. workers.
