Under Arizona

More from this show

Two billion years in the making, Arizona ‘s landscape is recognized worldwide. The Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Kartchner Caverns — the diversity of natural forces that created these wonders are unique to our state. Forged by fire, submerged in water and buried by earth, the stories are not found on the surface. These stories are under Arizona.

In this Arizona Collection special, Eight takes viewers on a visually stunning trip. Our cameras capture never-before seen Native American ancestral sites, a dazzling treasure of gemstones and minerals, networks of aquifers, caves and lava tubes, newly discovered remains of dinosaur tracks, and historic mining towns. And at each step of the exploration, Arizona ‘s past, and future, unfolds. Spectacular high definition photography and computer animation combine for a compelling discovery of the natural riches found only in the Grand Canyon state.

Under Arizona also unveils out-of-the-ordinary phenomenon: from the strange substance at the bottom of Montezuma Well to the mystery of the World War II B-29 bomber hidden for decades at the bottom of Lake Mead.

Three young people face away from the camera. The middle figure has an arm around each of their friends; the other two each have an arm raised in triumph. The trio are looking out across the landscape.
