Of all the continents on Earth, none preserves a more spectacular story of its origins than Australia. NOVA’s miniseries takes viewers on a rollicking adventure from the birth of the Earth to the emergence of the world we know today. Epic in scope, intimate in nature, this is the untold story of the Land Down Under, the island continent that has it all.

Nova “Australia’s First 4 Billion Years”

Wednesdays at 8pm on PBS North
April 10 - May 1

With high-energy host and geologist Richard Smith, meet titanic dinosaurs and giant kangaroos, sea monsters and prehistoric crustaceans, disappearing mountains and deadly asteroids. Smith and NOVA hunt for scattered clues across the vast landscape to unlock the pieces of that puzzle in four distinct parts airing on consecutive Wednesday nights: Awakening, Life Explodes, Monsters, and Strange Creatures.
