Earthquake!: The Science Behind the Shake

2007 Rated NR 2hr 52m

Three penetrating PBS documentaries explore the power and destruction of earthquakes, taking a look at what scientists understand -- and are striving to learn -- about these potent natural disasters. The programs examine the series of faults lying directly under Los Angeles and the potential calamity they could create; the powerful 8.3 earthquake that flattened most of San Francisco in 1906; and the science behind the prediction of quakes.
