Carbon: The Unauthorised Biography

1 x 89 / 1 x 55 HD 4K
Broadcaster:  ABC,  CBC,  ZDF/ARTE

Narrated by Golden Globe winner Sarah Snook, this is the ultimate biography of Carbon, the most talked about but least understood element on earth. Carbon in nature, industry, culture, war and love.


Carbon’s life story is an epic journey from the death of a star to the birth of the modern world, towards an understanding of today’s most vital issues: energy, climate and survival.


As if unearthed from an ancient archive, Carbon finally has a voice. This story of life’s core element promises to transform how we think of Carbon, from maligned destroyer towards a powerful enabler. Carbon is not the enemy. Carbon is life.
