Smithsonian Channel, a joint venture between the Smithsonian Institute and Showtime, will premiere a new doc on the natural history legacies of volcanoes this Sunday (Sept. 15).

Islands of Fire investigates the life-spawning aftermath of volcanic eruptions, exploring the vast chain of volcanoes that make up the longest mountain range in the world – the mid-Atlantic Ridge.

The 60-minute film takes viewers to Iceland, Ascension Island, and the remote islands of Tristan de Cunha, Elephant Island and the Falklands, where once-sterile landscapes now teem with wildlife.

Islands of Fire is produced by Carl Hall of Warehouse 51 Productions. Joy Galane and David Royle serve as executive producers for Smithsonian Channel.

The doc premieres Sept. 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel.
