Tsunami - The Day The Wave Came DVD
Product Code: ZDVD48
In December 2004, devastation hit Asia and Africa in the form of a major earthquake followed by a tsunami which caused devastation in many coastal areas. Almost 200,000 people in eight countries perished in a few hours, and over 100,000 are still missing. This programme takes a truly personal approach to the tragedy, reporting on what happened to the people who were caught up in the disaster. Important questions are raised about the how well the region was prepared for such an event and whether better emergency response procedures can be put in place for the future.
