Great San Francisco Earthquake, The 1x57

The terrible chain of events began at 5:12 am April 18, 1906 when an earthquake hit San Francisco with the force of approximately 12,000 times the power of the atom bomb that would be dropped on Hiroshima some 40 years later. Featuring film footage of the city before and after the quake and archival photographs, this documentary creates a fluid, dramatic account of a disaster-torn city that would enthusiastically reinvent itself after the three-day firestorm that leveled four and a half square miles.
