Wonders of the Solar System

Series 1 Episode 4: Dead or Alive

The worlds that surround our planet are all made of rock, but there the similarity ends. Some have a beating geological heart, others are frozen in time. Brian visits the volcano Mauna Kea on Hawaii, to show how something as basic as a planet's size can make the difference between life and death.
