Tsunami Caught on Camera: The Boxing Day Tsunami was the most devastating natural disaster in recorded history - almost 230,000 people were killed. And as the catastrophe unfolded, remarkable amateur video footage emerged. It was shot by people from all around the vast impact area and depicted the terror and chaos they experienced as the massive waves struck land. Now that footage will be collated into one film: a minute-by-minute account of the devastation, told by the people who were there. We will trace the disaster's terrible seven-hour timeline and massive geographic range, from the initial undersea earthquake, to the sweeping arc of destruction around the Indian Ocean, and the immediate and tragic aftermath.

so much pain and loss that day. i never knew just how bad till i saw this. i knew of the amount of lives lost but to see it from the eyes of those there has broken my heart. im still crying as im typing. i was brought up a christian but now as an adult seeing so much pain and loss i cant see how a so-called god would let so many children and people die for doing nothin. what did those 1/3, which are children, do to deserve a so-called "gods wrath." no loving or forgiving god would do something of this magnitude! no god would kill young children, babies, or other innocent people. this was an act of nature like every other tragedy and great people caught in its path. a must watch only for those, not like me, who feel too much to often. its only for those of strong will over emotions

This was a horrific documentary, I remember this tsunami. It is sad but I'm glad the survivors got to tell their stories and the footage was amazing to watch, how mother nature works. I feel sorry for the people who lost their loved ones, I wanted to watch this before I watched The Impossible. 8/10

Heart breaking is the only word that describes it for me. It made me think about my family and how lucky I really am. I don't think I could be as strong as those people who lost their children. I pray I never have to find out. God Bless all those souls, I hope their at peace.

If you don't want to feel sad...don't watch this...the devastation was just immense! Watching the footage is like watching helplessness and despair... there's absolutely nothing these ppl can do but watch and try to understand what the hell just happened...very very sad that this natural disaster.

This was just, so terrible. My heart goes out to the people that were touched by this. This should teach all of us how precious life really is. This is a really good documentary, a must see for those out there that think they have it bad.

so incredibly heartbreaking, cried the whole way through- dont even think i could continue living after losing a child, or a lover- or even watching people die in front of me. or worse, hearing them die.. so sad. it really makes you think about doing something worthwhile with the time you've got.

This really hurt to watch. But,... it was very nice to see everyone working together to help one another. In all that chaos,... it was beautiful. People need to band together. Stop all the fighting and hating of each other. We are all human. We are all the same thing! Humans.

I cannot even imagine what it would be like to go through something like this. May all the people who lost their lives R.I.P.

This is one of those things you hear about in the news and you really don't think enough about it until you see a documentary like this, really opens your eyes and serves as a reminder of how fragile life is and how often we take things for granted. I'm glad I watched this.

Absolutely amazing! So memorable, I'll be thinking about this documentary for a very long time. Although I was a bit surprised that they didn't interview a lot of the local residents, only tourists. It's clear to me that a large number of footages used in the docu were not taken by those tourists.
