Countdown to a Catastrophe

Every year, volcanoes, earthquakes and hurricanes pose a serious threat to hundreds of millions of people across the globe. But whereas scientists had previously considered these forces independently of one another, they are now focusing on the interrelationships between these natural disasters. In this documentary, we follow scientists as they travel to the most extreme and dangerous places on earth to implement the latest devices that will allow us to protect ourselves from violent storms, quakes and volcanic eruptions...

Shot in HD, the production makes use of vivid, compelling CGI along with the latest camera technology, including a remote-controlled “multicopter” for breathtaking aerial photography. Our scientists come closer than ever to bubbling lava lakes and defy noxious gases and seismic tremors that hint at coming disasters...
