Using animated models, 'Genesis' simulates the earth's history of constant change. These extensive models dramatize the theory of plate tectonics and demonstrate the forces which created new continents and reshaped oceans. Then this kaleidoscopic film travels around the world to capture the earth in action. Actual footage of a volcanic eruption in Hawaii and the ocean floor spreading beneath Iceland make the earth's evolution a vivid reality.
