[edit] Information

How do you want your day/world to end? An exploration into the various ways in which, within the circumstances of one day, civilization could be brought to an abrupt end.. Imagine waking up to the last day on Earth. What's the worst final fate that could await mankind in just 24 hours? Based on the predictions of leading scientists, this programme realistically re-creates the most apocalyptic scenarios facing the planet. The question is not if but when and how. Scientists know that the apocalypse is inevitable. What no one knows is how humanity will be destroyed or when. A disaster film based on the hypotheses of modern experts with the help of ultra-realistic computer graphics offers us to witness four possible versions of the apocalypse. In 60 minutes see just how fragile and brittle our world is. Devastation could come at any time, from almost anywhere. A tsunami strikes New York, a comet hits Berlin, a supervolcano devastates the United States, a virus hits London, and a unsafe form of matter posited by physicists destroys the Earth. This disturbing drama-documentary, made prior to the Asian Boxing Day disaster, uses CGI to create five apocalyptic scenarios based on the predictions of leading scientists. Four tragic scenarios are framed in the form of "documentary reports", which makes the picture even more dramatic. As the future of the earth hangs in the balance, could we recover from such devastation? The first story tells how a huge wave buries New York under it. The main character of the second story is a meteorite that turns Berlin into a huge crater. In the third plot, an unknown virus penetrates a passenger flight to the UK, causing a POSSIBLE pestilence of all living things. And finally, the fourth story tells what can happen if too inquisitive scientific minds want to recreate a black hole in the laboratory. Feared since the beginning of civilisation, the end of the world is no longer just possible; it is entirely probable. A mega-tsunami, a meteor set on a course of annihilation, a super volcano, a deadly virus, sub-atomic scientific research gone horribly wrong - how do you want your day to end ? What kind of end do you think our civilization deserves? Written & Directed by Gareth Edwards ; A BBC Three and ProSieben Co-Production
