Krakatoa Previous Broadcasts
KQED Plus: Thu, Feb 28, 2013 -- 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, 188 3, 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.
