Eight thousand years before the devastating 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, waves taller than the Statue of Liberty ravaged the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea, decimating ancient villages and killing untold numbers of people. In this stunning program from Mega Disasters, watch as experts piece together evidence from this incredible storm, and reveal the face of the ancient tsunami for the first time. For more than eight millennia, the trigger of the mega tsunami remained a mystery; but, in 1996, a group of Italian scientists discovered an incredible clue in the most unlikely of places: two miles up, on the summit of Mt. Etna. Now, using all of their expertise, the scientists set out to prove their theory and shed light on the severity of the tsunami's destruction. Through their work, the team also examines whether a tsunami of this magnitude could happen again and how it would affect people the world over. Featuring expert interviews, staggering footage from the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, and amazing 3-D computer-generated animation, Mega Tsunami recreates the massive waves that may have changed the course of history.
