Synopsis by Betsy Boyd
Part of the educational Miracle Planet series, which teaches kids and grown-ups, too, about earth science from a historical perspective, Miracle Planet: Riddles of Sand and Ice traces the changes in climatic patterns over time. Viewers learn about glacier formation and the high-impact effects of glacial shifting and polar ice. Graphics make the images and causal relationships more easy to grasp. The program is hosted by journalist Bill Kurtis.
