Flood - 2 Disc Extended Edition
Saturday 11th October 2008
Throughout history there are regular reports of the Thames flooding, the first occurrence on record being in 1236. These events have been getting progressively more destructive. The worst incident in recent memory was the flood of 1953. It devastated the East Coast and the Thames Estuary, taking a toll of over 300 lives. However fortunately, on this occasion, the flood did not reach the city centre. In 2007, rapidly increasing global warming, rising sea levels and growing tides have made a major flood, a shocking probability.
In recent years there has been massive increases in central urbanization and geologists have discovered that London lies on a bed of clay. This has caused many inhabitants to fear that a disaster of significant magnitude could mean that one of the greatest capital cities in the world, a city that has endured for more than 2000 years, could simply cease to exist. This time London would find itself in a watery grave...
An exhilarating new motion picture, Flood takes you there - to the staggering, catastrophe on the day that nature's ultimate force tests every resource - human and technological - of a great metropolis.
