Program 4: The Ever Changing Planet
Our planet is ever-changing. Earth's landforms are constantly being created and destroyed on timescales ranging from days to tens of millions of years. In this program Alec Murphy walks you through the forces shaping and destroying the planet's many landforms.

Program 5: Layering the Planet
Geography has found that Earth is organized into a sequence of spheres: the inner core, the crust or lithosphere, a soil layer, known as the pedosphere, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere and biosphere. Alec Murphy shows how they are all interconnected in one dynamic system.

Program 6: Geographical Regions
Regions are one of the most important tools used in geographical thinking. In this program Alec Murphy shows how the planet is divided into physiographic regions, each with internal dynamic processes. Then he defines the three types of regions: formal, functional, and colloquial.

Program 7: Physical Geographic
Influences on the Development of Human Societies One of the great debates in geography has been:How much does place or physical geography determine human development - cultural and economic? Using historical examples and present-day case histories, Alec Murphy guides you through both sides of the argument known as environmental determinism. Featured are leading geographical thinkers.

Program 8: Human Impacts on the Natural Environment
Human beings have become a geographical force. In the 21st century human beings each year bring more change to the surface of the planet than all the natural forces combined. In this final program Alec Murphy presents an intriguing history of how this came to be and what the future holds for the planet and the 7 billion people living on its surface.
