I don't normally watch much on TV or DVD
that's not fiction. However, PBS sent me some videos to
watch, so I'm reviewing them. This was probably the least
exciting of the ones they sent to me because it deals with
recent history, which is not as interesting.
episode was all about the volcano that erupted on the big
island of Hawaii in 2018. You probably saw or read news
footage of this.
They attempt to understand how this
happened and why. There's a lot of great video. If you
didn't live through it, you might find it very exciting.
I thought it was just okay. It's only an hour but seems
much longer. There are no features or extras on this DVD.

KILAUEA: HAWAI'I ON FIRE
In May 2018 the Kilauea volcano
erupted, obliterating neighborhoods with devastating force
and uprooting thousands of local residents. It is Hawaii’s
most destructive volcanic eruption in generations. How can
one of the most beautiful places on Earth suddenly transform
into a roaring inferno, sputtering molten lava and bombs of
volcanic rock the size of refrigerators? On the ground in
the early days of the eruption, NOVA joins scientists and
residents alike on a breathtaking journey to investigate
Kilauea’s recent spike in activity. Along the way, some of
Hawaii’s biggest secrets are revealed: Why did these
geologically distinctive volcanoes form in the middle of the
Pacific? How did life establish itself on the remote
islands? What does this tell us about the future of Hawaii?
And what dangers lurk for the inhabitants of the island
