Tornados, Collapsing Mines, Fires, Explosions, Earthquakes, Inferior Structures, Shipping Tragedies and Floods. Human interest in disasters and their horrendous outcomes never ceases. This series goes beyond the headlines to satisfy the appetite and curiosity of the audience, stepping back in time to real incidents many know only as old tales, news headlines, or examples in a classroom lesson. Focusing on two disasters per episode, the series gives in-depth coverage of the events and the impact on the survivors, families, and communities involved in each tragedy.
The disasters are grouped by location, circumstance, type, tragedy, or social impact. Disasters of the Century consists of intense one-hour docu-dramas incorporating interviews with real footage and reenactments, designed to grasp the attention of a massive audience with a powerful hunger for fact- based historical dramas.
