Ancient Mega Tsunami

Pencast I made of 'Ancient Mega Tsunami' broadcast on the National Geographic Channel in the UK at 9pm on Fri 16th July 2010. It features Dr Ted Bryant and his theory that a mega tsunami hit the eastern coast of Australia around AD1500. Ted has personally shown me some of the key sites in the field and the evidence is stronger than made out in the programme. There may also be accounts of a comet event in aboriginal legends. However, it is still a highly controversial theory. The programme may be repeated if you missed it - check out Sky TV.
