This one-hour science and technology documentary explains what causes large earthquakes and tsunamis in Southwest Europe, uncovers new historical evidence revealing their frequency, and explores world innovations that can keep us safe. We will set up the risks with science and history, with facts, and offer solutions with inventive new technologies.
