Amazing Underground Secrets
This eye-catching 3-part series explores the wonders that lie hidden below the planet's surface. It's a world of surprising, dramatic, awe-inspiring and sometimes magical things, from underground telescopes to crystal caves, from meandering tunnels to massive caverns to whole cities. Getting there is only part of the challenge; returning safely is a feat in itself.

Much of the underground world is carved by nature; many of its greatest treasures are the result of elemental processes as old as the planet itself. We haven't been slow to make use of these extraordinary and dramatic spaces - they provide us with a record of our earliest history, if we know where to look. But it's a dangerous, often threatening realm, with its dark caverns, narrow environments and rushing water. Far from the light of day we join intrepid underground explorers as they push back the boundaries, make amazing discoveries and share sights of remarkable beauty.
