Summary
For anyone who ever wondered what would happen to our planet should mankind simply vanish, the filmmakers at The History Channel offer a fictional examination of a world where all human activity has ceased, and Mother Nature returns to reclaim what is rightfully hers. A telling visit to the abandoned villages surrounding Chernobyl offers a haunting look at formerly-populated areas completely overrun by flora and fauna just twenty-two years after a nuclear disaster sent citizens fleeing in fear, while a trip to a the islands just off the coast of Maine guides viewers through a series of ghosts towns that have been virtually swallowed up by the encroaching nature. While the pyramids of Egypt could stand forever, would the structures of the modern era have the same, seemingly infinite, structural integrity? Scientists, scholars, and experts in biology, ecology, botany, engineering, archeology, and climatology offer informed opinions on how long the traces of mankind would remain, and vivid computer graphics allow us to witness the unthinkable with our own eyes. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
