Massive, unstoppable, deadly, combining huge mass and terrifying velocity, these giant waves are triggered by the earth’s most powerful forces. They can cross entire oceans at speeds in excess of 500 miles an hour, unleashing their destructive energy on coasts thousands of miles from their source. In exceptional situations they can reach dizzying heights of over 1700 feet. Using archive footage, computer animation, and expert interviews, we investigate five of the most destructive tsunamis in the last 60 years. Each has its own character, each is bigger than the last, and each takes us one step closer to a mega disaster.
Using archive footage, computer animation, and expert interviews, we expose the killer characteristics of natural disasters, leading to an ultimate disaster. Investigating the ‘big four’ of natural disasters: tornadoes, volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis, Mega Disaster series takes viewers beyond the news footage, beyond the aftermath, and on a tour of the anatomy of these mega events to understand their genesis and the multitude of factors that contribute to their subsequent impact. Some of the world’s leading experts on each natural phenomenon provide analysis and insight into how some of Planet Earth’s titanic upheavals can result in something so deadly and cause such widespread damage.
In the final act of each Mega Disaster episode we construct a disaster scenario, using expert information and brought to life with astounding computer graphics, an event of such scale, enormity and power, it will eclipse all other disasters – truly a mega disaster. The final act of Mega Disaster: Tsunami, using a combination of complex CGI and real locations, will illustrate in detail the causes and possible effects of a mega-tsunami – a mega disaster that scientists say could happen sometime in our future. And if it does, it will not just rewrite the history books – it will erase them.
