Journey to the Earth's Core

Journey to the Earth's Core is a History Channel documentary taking us a journey to the Earth’s core and finding out how our existence depends on the mysterious underground forces that shape the Earth. Along the way, scientists, engineers, explorers and adventurers encounter an underground world where: strange life forms inhabit deadly environments over a mile down; trees force their way through 400 feet of rock to find water; 1500-foot tall skyscrapers are built on sand; mines are the size of cities; and prospectors give the Earth electric shocks to help find oil. It also a place where people run marathons, make parachute jumps and scuba divers edge their way to the base of the world’s deepest caves.
