Geography of the World: Europe's Land and Resouces



This program opens with a Journey down the Rhine River, picturesquely displaying all the European countries it passes through. Europe is often called a continent, but it is actually a large peninsula that extends westward from the great landmass of Asia. The Countries of Europe are usually grouped into major sub regions such as the British Isles, Western Europe, Scandinavia, Central Europe, Southern Europe and Eastern Europe. Viewers will learn about the topography and location of each area and the countries that are included in each area. Also described are Europe’s many navigable rivers including the Rhine, the Danube, the Seine and the Thames. There are mountain ranges, such as the Alps and the Sierra Nevadas and plains suitable for agriculture. The Climatic conditions during each season are also covered.
