E.A.R.T.H. Force debuted on 16th September 1990 and vanished from American screens three weeks later! That was not the end of it though – the six filmed episodes were screened in full around the world in various TV markets (where it was known as The Elite) leaving an impression on those who saw it.
In the show we followed the Earth Alert Research Tactical Headquarters (E.A.R.T.H.), that was brought together by a dying millionaire Frederick Mayer (played by Robert Coleby) to prevent environmental disasters around the world.
The team consisted of Dr. John Harding M.D. (played by Gil Gerard), mission coordinator Diana Randall (played by Joanna Pacula), nuclear physicist Dr. Carl Dana (Clayton Rohner), oceanographer Dr. Catherine Romano (played by Tiffany Lamb) and zoologist Dr. Peter Roland (played by Robert Knepper). During their adventures they battled nuclear sabotage, animals being sold illegally and industrial toxicity.
