Earthquake and Tsunami Special Coming to Discovery Channel
"Anatomy of a Disaster" will include unprecedented footage of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami.
On the heels of Japan’s tragic earthquake and tsunami, Discovery and its sister network the Science Channel have announced plans to air a one-hour special documenting the devastation.
Set to air in early April, Anatomy of a Disaster will include unprecedented footage of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami, as well as the ripple effects and response efforts around the world.
“On the strength of our institutional reach and relationships, Discovery Channel and Science Channel will offer a one-of-a-kind look into today’s epic natural tragedy,” said Clark Bunting, president and GM of Discovery Channel, in a statement. “’Anatomy of a Disaster’ will depict a race against time, from the first wave to hit Sendai, to acts of incredible heroism still yet to occur.”
