How and when was Halifax Harbour formed? What secrets lie beneath its waters? Researcher George Jordan brings together a host of scientists, technologists and historians who examine the bedrock geology, glacial history and changing sea levels that have shaped what may be the world's largest ice-free harbour.

New seabed mapping techniques, the use of submerged forests and former lakes to date harbour formation, and the study of sediment cores help flesh out the harbour's story. Some of the more modern events are how geology affected the Halifax Explosion of 1917 and the discovery of the original bridge ruins in The Narrows. Halifax school children help pose questions to the harbour experts in their own examination of this complex body of water.
