Australia: Land Beyond time is a documentary from 2002 showing the formation and history of the land. Australia is the world's largest island, and smallest continent. It is one of the most diverse and rugged land masses on the globe. The film shows the beginning of the continent, and how the harsh conditions have molded the geography and habitats. Much of the amazing scenery is filmed from the air, miles of red sand deserts, rain forests, and the famous Outback are included. Well-known and lesser known animals are captured on film, like the fourth largest lizard in the world, the Parentie lizard. The rains and flooding on Lake Eyre, which occur twice in a century are documented, along with the resulting ecological changes that the rains bring. Australia was previously part of Antarctica, continental drift caused it to break off on its own, to become what some describe as more like a different planet, than a different country.
