Supervolcano
« on: Mar 14, 2005, 14:46 »
Thoroughly enjoyed the BBC dramatisation of the Yellowstone Supervolcano last night. The second episode (on tonight) will see more special effects than last night's. The acting was pretty good, and the scene where the politicians leant on the expert is probably very close to the truth of what would happen were this to have occured in 'real life'.

The scary thing is that this thing WILL blow it's top again, just no-one knows when.  :shock: The programme on BBC2 afterwards was good too.

I was looking forward to this when they announced it in the Xmas schedules. They pulled it because of the Asian Tsunami but it was worth the wait. It was as good as I expected and will look forward to the conclusion tonight.

Watched the conclusion last night and really enjoyed that too. Worth the wait.

On the same point of interest there was also supposed to be another disaster programme to be shown by the BBC but they have also put that back to a later date. The official statement is as follows:-

The BBC has pulled a drama about the end of the world from its schedule for a second time, fearing it would offend people following the Asian tsunami.
End Day explores the effects of a mega-tsunami upon New York, among five possible scenarios for apocalypse.

BBC Three was to screen it on Wednesday in the same month as BBC's Supervolcano and The Science of the Tsunami.

"We felt that there would have been too many programmes at once on such a sensitive subject," a spokeswoman said.
