Japan's Tsunami: How It Happened

This video is for our Senior Primary Class, who have been studying The Changing Earth.

Text from the YouTube page:
"On Friday 11 March 2011, an earthquake measuring 9.0 on the Richter scale triggered a tsunami that devastated parts of coastal Japan. Japan's Tsunami: How It Happened investigates the science behind the earthquake and tsunami. The programme follows Professor of Geological Sciences Roger Bilham - who arrived in Japan days after the earthquake." This 47 minute program was produced by NOVA, and explains with maps, simulations, amazing eye-witness video, and interviews how the Earth changed.
