watch part 1 here:

65 million years ago the dinosaurs were wiped out by a gigantic asteroid. we could soon be next. we don't know when it will happen or where the asteroid will strike. we only know that it will happen - sometime - perhaps in 1000 years' time or perhaps tomorrow. will it be the end of mankind?

through the eyes of a young astronomer we experience this catastrophic event. on discovering the asteroid on collision course with earth, he tries to give a warning, but in vain. he survives, but this is just the beginning. the impact results in an eclipse of the sun leading to a global winter and the extinction of many life-forms.

this documentary will depict the scientific background to the catastrophe, with all its consequences for mankind and the natural world. this is the end of an era, but also the beginning of a new one - the age of the conquerors.
