It is strongly suspected that the area between the Northern English Channel and the North Sea from east coast of England and the west coasts of the Netherlands and Denmark were once an immense and fertile river valley that was heavily populated by animals, Neanderthals humans, and modern humans. When the glaciers melted at the end of the last Ice Age, the area was covered by the sea in a matter of a few thousand years. According to the show, people could see the water covering land in a matter of feet every day.

When modern fishermen in the area cast their nets, they bring up animal bones, some human artifacts and other evidence that this was a great place to live for a diverse population of species.

There are prehistoric sites being excavated along the shores.

I really can feel for the people on the Pacific Islands, which were mentioned at the end of this show as being dreadfully at risk because of climate change.
