Full Description

In 186 A.D. New Zealand shook violently, torn apart by perhaps the most cataclysmic volcanic eruption in recorded history. The eruption turned the centre of New Zealand's North Island into a pumice desert and blasted an enormous fresh water lake, Lake Taupo. This programme is an unusual study of the dynamics of nature in change. Set among crystal clear scenery, it looks at the rare Blue Duck, the threatened Kokako native bird and the introduced species of Rainbow Trout. (Stereo)
