[edit] Information

Tsunami: Five Years On The Boxing Day tsunami of 2004 was just the beginning, for those who survived. A massive earthquake caused a tidal wave that killed a quarter of a million people, but many millions more found their lives changed forever. This documentary tells the powerful story of how the survivors have tried to rebuild their lives. In Thailand, a mother fights property developers to protect the memory of her drowned daughter. While in Indonesia, villagers now live under strict religious law in the belief that the catastrophe was a judgement from God. In Context The tsunami killed more than 200,000 people in 13 countries. At least 128,000 people died in Indonesia alone. Many months later, bodies were still being discovered in some countries. In Thailand a British forensic team continues its work identifying up to 2,000 victims. There was a massive international response. Six months after the disaster about $12bn (£7bn) around the world had been pledged in aid. But rebuilding in many of the stricken areas is slow and thousands of people remain homeless. The UN has said it expects much of the reconstruction work to take up to five years. Governments affected by the disaster are now working to build a tsunami early warning system. The Boxing Day sea surge was triggered when an earthquake caused the sea floor to jolt vertically by about 10m (33ft), which displaced hundreds of cubic kilometres of water.
