Summary
It was a geological cataclysm that revealed the courage, corruption, and evolution of a city. This program shows how the Great Quake of 1906 leveled San Francisco while giving birth to new knowledge that has impacted earthquake science and urban planning in every corner of the globe. Extraordinary digital animation and dramatic reenactments of personal stories give viewers an enriched perspective of the event, interwoven with present-day scientific research and an unsettling, overarching question. Will the modern towers of San Francisco, despite technological advances over the last century, remain standing when the next Big One occurs?
