Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
This series, from Australia's public television network, chronicles the story of the physical geography and natural history of the Island Continent. Experts think that the gigantic landmass then broke apart, and the ensuing continental drift formed the Earth's other large landmasses. Computer graphics and nature photography are used to illustrate the story. Interviews with scholars provide the commentary. This third and final episode follows the song lines of the aboriginal dream people of Australia, surveying the animals and plants that are native to its shores. Experts offer their opinions on the effects of pollution and environmental policies on this unique place.
