Description:Australia, New Zealand, and New Guinea represent a very significant portion of the world's land mass. This film traces their evolution from their earliest known beginnings 2000 million years ago to the present. Spectacular aerial photography illustrates the main landform regions -- the Western Shield, the dry Central Basins region, the Eastern Highlands bordered by a fertile coastal plain, and the more recently formed Island Arc, where volcanic activity and glaciation are still present.
