A fascinating feature length documentary from Lion TV that delves into what caused one of the most powerful volcanic eruptions in recorded history?

On January 15th 2022, the volcano Hunga Tonga – Hunga Ha’apai erupts with the power of over 60 million tons of TNT. It is the most powerful explosion ever recorded on the planet. Within minutes waves as high as six-story buildings, devastate the Pacific nation of Tonga, leaving a country in tatters, and scientists around the world struggling to understand the enormity of what had happened.

Why did this volcano produce such an immensely powerful eruption? How did it generate such a devastating tsunami, and crucially, could it happen at other volcanoes around the planet? From the makers of The Secrets of the Saqqara Tomb and Saving Venice, this series follows a team of international investigators as they try to solve the mysteries of Hunga Tonga – Hunga Ha’apai.
