Krakatoa Previous Broadcasts

KQED Life: Fri, May 20, 2011 -- 8:00 PM

This program revisits the events that led to the Indian Ocean's previously most-devastating tsunami, the eruption of the volcano Krakatoa. 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 people. Segments of the program tie the resulting tsunami destruction to the December 26, 2004, tsunami.

    • KQED Plus OTA ? Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

      (DT54.1 thru 54.5) Assuming that the weather and road conditions permit, we plan to do a bit of maintenance on our KQEH transmitter the morning of Friday 12/05… hopefully 10am-11am-ish, but could be a bit later.
