Generated deep underground or beneath the seabed, earthquakes have the power to change the face of the landscape, sometimes forever. This program describes how earthquakes work, using expert testimony and compelling graphics to show how they go on to cause such widespread death and destruction. It shows where they are most likely to occur, as well as explaining why it is impossible to predict, or forecast, precisely when they will strike. Four particularly devastating earthquakes are covered in detail: Armenia (1988), Japan (1995), Turkey (1999), and China in May 2008 when 70,000 people were killed, 375,000 injured and five million left homeless and destitute. Quakes From Hell is essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand how earthquakes unleash such awesome power, how they are measured and how science is working to guard against them.
