2015, THE DISASTER DIARIES ( 4K) - world premiere
Record-breaking cyclone activity, explosive volcanic eruptions, powerful earthquakes and endless heat waves – 2015 was punctuated by a number of exceptional natural disasters. The toll of these terrifying events: 20,000 lives lost and more than 42 billion dollars worth of damage.
2015 has been a record-breaking year in several categories: tropical storms of unprecedented strength, interminable droughts and the highest temperatures measured in the last 130 years… Is this the result of global warming or could other factors, like El Nino, be to blame?
How do scientists try to forecast these cataclysms? Is it possible for inhabitants to prepare in advance and anticipate these natural events? From the Andes mountain range to the Himalayan plateaux past the icy wastelands of Iceland and the paradise islands of Vanuatu, our show feature all the major natural disasters of the year, as well as scientists at work as they try to unravel the mysteries of the planet’s mood swings.
Entirely shot in 4K and mix in 5.1 surround sound, it offers the viewer an immersive journey in the most dramatic volcanic, tectonic, and climatic events of the year.
The airing on RMC met a way-above normal rating... which means you are likely to see another DISASTER DIARIES 2016 !
