The eruption of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano in 2010 turned much of the northern hemisphere into an ash-strewn no-fly zone. Katla, an Icelandic volcano 10 times bigger, has begun to swell and grumble, and Hekla and Laki, could erupt without warning. Iceland is a ticking time bomb: When it blows, the consequences will be global. What can we do to prepare for the coming disaster?

Very well done and interesting documentary movie. A pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie for all to see. No fast forwarding no falling asleep on this one. A++ DVD

Another exceptional NOVA program; this one deals with the geophysics of volcanoes in Iceland, the potential threat they post, and how they compare to other volcanoes. Highly informative and as always with NOVA, well drawn together, with plenty of expert commentary and outstanding cinematography.
