If you enjoyed our telefeature Aftershock (about a devastating earthquake in Wellington), then Eruption should be on your veiwing list. It shows what a volcanic eruption in the middle of Auckland's harbour might be like.
The scenario is based on scientific reasoning that a hot spot 100km beneath the city could cause another eruption.
Eruption features a well known cast with Mark Mitchinson playing the lead character - obsessed seismologist Clive, who believes an eruption is imminent, but struggles to convince his fellow scientists. There’s his high-stress wife, Mere (Nicola Kawana), who is planning a Maori welcome for 800 cruise ship visitors and drinking too much. There’s Clive’s unnaturally mature teenage daughter, Molly (Billie Holland). Other stories involve a Hong Kong hotshot, his downtrodden girlfriend and the Chinese woman who helps her; a mother who is in hospital when events begin, leaving her two young lads at home; and two radio DJs, who are sceptical at first, but who switch into public service mode when things get serious.
A few previews to get you started...
