People have been predicting the end of the world for thousands of years but celebrated astronomer Patrick Moore assures us that the Earth is not in immediate danger. Examining the history of doomsaying from the predictions of astrologers and priests to the more modern fear of asteroids or comets, he presents the scientific evidence for the most likely cause of the planet's ultimate demise.
