Listen: An Earth Made for Life

Series 1: Earth Made For Life

from BBC Radio 4

This series of programmes looks at the oldest surviving remnants of the Earth – a strip of ancient seafloor now exposed near the Greenland icecap, the oldest piece of continent, now to be found in Western Australia, even a single grain of rock that appears to have survived from 4.4 billion years ago, holding evidence that oceans existed even then. The series includes the oldest evidence of life on Earth, the oldest fossils, even the traces of ancient raindrops that have survived over the eons.”

Listen to all three programs of the series 1 here.
