NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL EXCLUSIVE: NAKED SCIENCE
FOOTAGE OF EYJAFJALLAJOKULL, ICELAND VOLCANO
FROM FIRST CREW ON THE GROUND
Crew filmed on-the-scene before, during and IMMEDIATELY after recent eruption
The National Geographic Channel (NGC) will be showing exclusive footages of the Eyjafjallajokull volcano before, during and after its recent eruption on April 14.
The massive eruption has grounded air traffic and caused extensive evacuations, major flooding, and a plume of ash 9,000 metres high. With the first video crews on the scene even before the eruption began, NGC is releasing this early footages exclusively of the volcano for the first time.
This special will give an in-depth report behind the volcanic and an inside look at the massive volcano eruption in Iceland felt around the world, grounding air traffic and causing extensive evacuations, major flooding, and a plume of ash 30,000 feet high. Scientists say the Eyjafjallajokull volcano is unpredictable – it’s already melted a glacier – and could lead to a disturbance at the nearby Katla volcano, which is potentially even more volatile.
This special episode of Naked Science provides exclusive eyewitness from the scene, the science behind the volcanic chaos and its global impact, including the disruption in air travel, the biggest since 9/11.
The special one-hour primetime programme entitled Naked Science: Iceland Volcano Eruption will be shown in National Geographic Channel (Astro Channel 553) on May 8 at 9 am and 7 pm, and May 9th at 5 pm.
National Geographic Channel will be showing Air Crash Investigation; Falling from the Sky on May 8 at 10 am right after. With smoke-filled cabin and malfunctioned engines, will British Airways Flight 9 get to land in Perth, Australia on the fateful day of 24 June 1982?
