Pt. 1, Wind & WaterDVD - 2005
Human attempts to control the power of nature are feeble at best. This distinctly Canadian program features: the tornadoes that hit Edmonton; the 'perfect storm' off the coast of Newfoundland resulting in the deaths of 84 crew aboard the Ocean Ranger drill rig; the flooding of theRed River in Manitoba; the effect of Hurricane Juan on the coast of Nova Scotia; and Hurricane Hazel wreaking havoc on Toronto. Emotional interviews and strong graphic images detail the outcomes of tornadoes and other storms. Originally a television special, the program is not broken into instructional segments. Also suitable for other science and social studies courses at the senior level.
