Against the Elements

Image 1 / 2

Against the Elements reveals the science behind the most heart-stopping natural disasters ever captured on camera. Our groundbreaking forensic investigations reveal what caused these catastrophes and what we've learned from past disasters to protect us in the future. We'll meet the people who survived against overwhelming odds. Their inspiring stories of heroism are enhanced by the "how did that happen?" factor. We'll talk to scientists and experts who've dedicated their lives to understanding these amazing natural phenomena. The forces of earth, water, wind and fire impact us all every day… sometimes benignly, sometimes deadly. And it's in that instant — that moment when when ordinary weather turns extraordinary — that we realize life is an ongoing battle… Against the Elements.
