This is a 50-minute documentry about mass extinction produced for PBS television program in 2014.
The film explores the "K/T Extinction" that wiped out the dinosaurs as well as "The Great Dying", which obliterated nearly 90% of all Earth's species.
Surprisingly, scientists say that we're facing the sixth mass extinction in the near future.
Do you believe this?
It is a profoundly thought-provoking documentary.
