This is the story of a remarkable planet, unlike any other yet found across deep space. Born from dying stars, it was sculpted by violent collisions in space. Yet, in an epic journey, this hostile ball of molten rock transformed itself into a nurturing environment. From it emerged forms of life, none of which have been found anywhere else in the universe. That planet is not millions of light years away. You are standing on it right now. It is Earth.

THE STORY OF EARTH is an Australian documentary for Giant Screen and IMAX directed by Russell Scott and written by Scott and Wain Fimeri. The documentary, narrated by Rachel Ward, centres on how contemporary geology has potentially led to a new understanding of how life on Earth came to be.
