Yellowstone is a park, but it's also the deadliest volcano on Earth. Beneath it, a sleeping 'dragon' is stirring. When an earthquake opens a crack for magma to seep through, other warning signs of an eruption start popping up, but they are ignored or dismissed as 'minor'. But when they learn an eruption will happen, panic breaks out through people of the USA and the world. This is a tale told from former Yellowstone scientists, who recall the final days before Yellowstone erupted, and everything changed forever. Written by

I have just finished watching this documentary/film and have also read another persons review on it, I thought the program was very interesting, I am a university student in my second year and having a program put a fact based disaster into a film is a very good way of showing people the effect this sort of disaster could have on the world.
It is very well explained, anyone could understand it, and even if they do use holographic projectors and things that haven't been invented yet, it does help people understand more easily. This documentary is aimed at anyone. It is based on scientific evidence so even if it hasn't happened yet, it is based on past happenings in the Yellowstone area and very sound predictions on volcanic activity based on years of research so therefore it isn't science fiction as the guy before said.
For anyone who is interested in the earth and things like volcanoes this is a very worthwhile documentary to watch.
