Savage Planet


SAVAGE PLANET airs Tuesdays, June 6 - June 27, 2000 at 8 pm (ET) on PBS (check local listings).

While planet Earth sustains life, it also harbors forces that can instantly destroy us. SAVAGE PLANET, a new, four-part series from Thirteen/WNET New York, examines the stunning beauty and deadly power of the Earth. Eyewitness accounts, scientific investigations, and unprecedented footage from around the world put viewers in the eye of the storm and on the trail of avalanches, meteors, lightning, and much more.

Savage Planet online features essays and interactive animations that highlight topics presented in the series; video clips; and links to relevant resources on the Web.

The site is best viewed in Netscape 4.0, Internet Explorer 4.0, and AOL 4.0 or higher. To view the QuickTime video clips, you must have the free QuickTime 3 or higher plug-in (for PC or Mac) . To view the animations, version 4 of the free Flash plug-in is required.
