"Discusses the significance of such concepts as the food chain, pyramid of numbers, and the predator-prey relationship in the organization of animal communities. Illustrates these concepts as applied to relationships among the brown lemming, pomarine jaeger, least weasel, and snowy owl in arctic regions and between the Adélie penguin and the south polar skua in antarctic regions."

"Examines efforts to understand the origin of the universe including radiotelescope monitoring of radiation from the "big bang", the use of computer modeling and particle accelerators to explain the mechanics of origin, and the insights provided by "inflation" theory, super string theory and mathematical approaches. Examines the search for precursors to the chemistry of life by looking at scientific research into bacteria that live on sulfur in submarine, volcanic environments, laboratory experiments with amino acids, and the search for pre-organic molecules in meteorites collected in Antarctica and Australia."
This includes physics, astronomy, chemistry and earth science.

"According to recent seismological observation, a great amount of seismic energy has been stored on the south of Tokyo. Today, an earthquake of magnitude 7 may well happen because of the accumulated energy, and seismologists are concentrating their energy on earthquake prediction. This film shows many useful experiments by elaborate models, for example, by a Japanese vegetable jelly."
