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
While Rick is at a shelter in Denver, there is a shot of 2 chaplains. Their shoulder patches identify them as from San Bernardino County, California. No doubt with the difficulty in travel, they would have stayed in their own area and not travel 1,000 miles into the disaster. See more »

I found that the show was very well done, the acting wasn't what I would have expected from that kind of TV docudrama. The information stated in the film was accurate and it was presented in a believable manner. I also liked the special effects thought I think some of the clips from the first eruption vent were taken from Dante's Peak. Anyway, I enjoyed it and I will watch it every time it's on. Not to mention Tom Brokaw at the end with his after the film documentary is a plus. I really hope that I can buy this film on DVD. My father saw a part of it when it was on Thursday on Discovery Science I think and he would really like to see the whole show.
