NZ Premiere: ATLAS 4D, DISCOVERY CHANNEL - Sundays from 8 August, 7.30pm

Atlas 4D reinvents the Atlas concept, tying together fascinating stories about certain regions into one grand narrative, describing the epic saga of a place passing through time.

Iconic regions are explored, such as the Great Rift Valley, the Himalayas, the Ganges and Patagonia. Each of these areas are revealed through a set of enthralling stories about their people, geology, flora and fauna.

These individual chapters are joined together by a striking CGI-enhanced 'god's eye view' called 4D, linking them in both space and time. Some of the interlinked stories delve into sizable questions such as why the Great Rift Valley led to the evolution of the human race, or how the Himalayas feed a fifth of the world's population, and some into smaller details, such as why flamingos are pink or how Sherpas survive at high altitudes.
