Eye Of The Storm

Further footage of natural disaster, some quite incredible, to remind us that we are merely tenants here.

Richard Madeley's narration is utterly lacking in emotion. 'It can turn streets into torrents. And you have to keep an eye on the kids,' he notes as one little girl disappears beneath flood water in Hong Kong.

Shortly, we meet 'storm chaser' Clarence Fong, who admits, 'Yes, I am crazy.' Then to Mozambique and a daring helicopter rescue of boys from flooding that began as a cyclone in Australia ('but in the villages they couldn't care less where the floods had come from').

Finally, to the devastating Turkish earthquake of 1999, attended by the real-life International Rescue: 'I'm going to let them tell their own story,' says Madeley, mercifully.
