Volcano

An investigation into the anatomy of a volcanic eruption: from the science behind recent events, ramping to a mega eruption that’s yet to happen—the Mega Disaster.

Produced by NHNZ

Volcanic eruptions are dramatic reminders that our world is a living planet. Their destructive force is as old as the earth itself—a force that commands respect and fear. Unleashing the power of the Earth’s molten interior in a single cataclysmic event, volcanoes have made their mark on human civilisation since the earliest days of recorded history. We’ll circle the globe profiling some of the most significant eruptions of our time—each more devastating than the last, each with its own compelling mysteries, each leading us to a mega-eruption that will change the world as we know it.
