Java in Jeopardy: Exploring the Volcano

Channel: Curiosity Channel (DStv 185)
TX Time: 21h00
Genre: Nature, Documentary

Java in Jeopardy: Exploring the Volcano

Scientists regard it as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world.

Time and again, it has proved its deadly potential – Merapi, the Fire Mountain of Java.

The risk of another serious eruption is high and could even have consequences which would be felt globally.

Now scientists are looking for a thus far unknown tectonic disturbance: what is the crack which suddenly winds its way through the centre of the volcano?

And what danger really lurks in the ground beneath the island of Java?

In the past hundred years alone, it has claimed over 1,500 victims.

The researchers are pursuing two main goals: firstly, to enhance the forecasting options to enable people in the densely populated region to be protected more efficiently in the future.

And secondly, they want to understand the mechanisms of this highly volatile type of volcano, which serves as an example of a number of particularly dangerous volcanoes on the planet.

The film focuses on an expedition to the 3,000-metre high rim of the steaming crater.

The camera accompanies the researchers into a world which is both hostile to life and fascinating.

Together with researchers from all around the globe, the film engages in an exciting search for clues on Indonesia's most active volcano.

Wild Crime 2

With hundreds of millions of visitors to America's national parks every year, bad things are bound to happen.

Wild Crime chronicles notable crimes committed in America's most majestic wilderness and the elite detectives who investigate them.

In 1983 a tourist discovered a woman's decaying hand in Yosemite National Park.

There were no missing person reports or additional remains found, which sparked questions amongst National Park Service criminal investigators Don Coelho and Kim Tucker about who this "Jane Doe" was and if she was murdered.

As they searched for answers, Coelho and Tucker are contacted about a notorious Texas serial killer who is claiming to be behind the homicide, but without the victim's identity and more evidence, the killer couldn't be prosecuted.

The case went cold until four decades later when rookie agent Cullen Tucker, the son of Kim Tucker, identified Jane Doe using new DNA science.

Over the course of four one-hour episodes, Wild Crime 2 unravels the truth about Jane Doe's identity and what detectives think happened to her and features exclusive interviews with the victim's close friends and the detectives on the case who reveal alleged details about the multiple alleged suspects behind her death and her time in a purported cult in a gateway town outside of Yosemite.

Also part of the Nine-Nine are veteran officers Det. Scully and Det. Hitchcock, whose only skill as police officers is their ability to make a passable pot of coffee.

In the Season 8 premiere, "The Good Ones": Amy returns from maternity leave as Jake and Rosa work a difficult case.

In the second episode, "The Lake House": The squad takes up Holt on an offer for a weekend getaway.
