Sixty-five million years ago, on the west coast of present-day India, the earth's crust cracked open. A series of volcanic eruptions, thousands of times bigger than anything mankind has ever witnessed, created the spectacular landscape seen there today. The effects were felt around the globe and may have driven the dinosaurs to extinction.
Why does the earth suffer outbursts of volcanic activity? Horizon relates the 20-year search which has led to a new theory explaining how the earth's crust was built.
