This collection presents three of HISTORY's finest programs on the fate of humans and our planet, offering an intelligent and provocative look at some of the grim realities we face. Combining visual effects and insights from experts, LIFE AFTER PEOPLE imagines what would happen to manmade structures, plants, animals and insects if the entire human population went extinct. This thought- provoking adventure visits the ghostly villages surrounding Chernobyl, abandoned after the 1986 nuclear meltdown; abandoned towns on remote islands off Maine's coast; deep into New York City's subway tunnels; and even into the Montana wilderness to find clues about the world we may leave behind. AFTER ARMAGEDDON takes a look at what past acts of destruction like Hiroshima and Hurricane Katrina have taught US about what could befall humankind in the wake of an apocalypse. In MEGA DROUGHT, we'll explore one of the key consequences of global warming intense and prolonged droughts that could ravage the western United States and lead to catastrophic water shortages. And MEGA FREEZE shows US how abrupt climate change could create devastating winters in some northern regions, with freezing temperatures and incessant storms potentially bringing starvation, disease and death to many. Watch as HISTORY opens your eyes to a world that, perhaps luckily, we won't be around to see.
