Using dramatic recreations and CGI, the program brings the May 20, 1883, eruption to life. The eruption reduced the island of Krakatoa to a third of its former size and sent waves that reportedly topped 100 feet high crashing onto Asian shores, killing 36,000. Portions of the program tie the resulting tsunami destruction to the December 26, 2004, tsunami.

Comments about PBS Krakatoa DVD:

Scientific explantions couched in layman's terms provide a clear understanding of the power of Krakatoa. We have early-warning systems in place now which will help, of course. Still, one wonders, when/if another volcano will bring such catastrophe to the earth.

SUPERB Movie/Documentary!

By Chris

Comments about PBS Krakatoa DVD:

This movie/documentary of Krakatoa's 1883 eruption in Indonesia is SUPERB. The historical and scientific aspects of this horrendous event are presented clearly and effectively. The special effects of the MONSTER waves created by Krakatoa are stunning! The actors, producers, directors, writers... everyone involved in putting this thing together did a masterful job.

If you are interested in volcanoes or the awesome power of earth's natural forces, or you've heard of Krakatoa but don't know anything about it... I HIGHLY recommend this movie.
