Hope its okay to put this here, wasn't where else for it yo go as it seems to cover a few sections of this forum.



End Day is a docu-drama produced by the BBC, that depicts various doomsday scenarios. The documentary follows the fictional scientist Dr. Howell, played by Glenn Conroy, as he travels from his London hotel room to his laboratory in New York City, and shows how each scenario affects his journey as well as those around him, with various experts providing commentary on that specific disaster as it unfolds.

Mega-Tsunami. In this scenario, a volcanic eruption on the island of La Palma triggers a massive landslide wherein a sizeable portion of the island collapses into the sea, causing a massive mega-tsunami to race across the Atlantic ocean and strike the east coast of the United States, inundating most of New York City, but leaving many buildings intact.

Killer Asteroid. This scenario begins with a mysterious ‘missile attack’ in a remote area somewhere in the Middle East. The ‘missiles’ are soon revealed to be small asteroid fragments, the advance guard of a much larger asteroid on a collision course with Earth, threatening Berlin, Germany. The asteroid is located and an attempt is made to alter its course using nuclear ICBMs. The attempt fails, resulting in the asteroid being broken into hundreds of smaller pieces with the biggest piece then impacting and obliterating Berlin.

Global Pandemic. In this scenario, a mysterious virus similar to SARS or influenza is unleashed, wreaking havoc as it spreads at a phenomenal rate throughout Europe, the UK, and North America, prompting many countries to enact martial law and close their borders in a frantic attempt to quarantine the spread of the disease, but are unsuccessful.

Super-volcano. This scenario is based on the super-volcano beneath Yellowstone National Park erupting, incinerating everything within 100 km and releasing ash into the atmosphere which cools the earth. This segment has only aired in the UK. This scenario was explored in depth in another BBC docudrama, Super-volcano.

Strange Matter. This is the only scenario in which Dr. Howell reaches his laboratory unhindered, with people protesting, and shouting,”STOP THE EXPERIMENT!” outside. Upon arrival, he and his colleagues initiate a highly controversial experiment using the world’s largest particle accelerator. The experiment quickly goes out of control, resulting in the creation of a new type of matter called a strangelet, which begins to consume and destroy all matter around it, starting with New York City. The phenomenon wreaks havoc on Earth’s weather systems and atmosphere, and eventually leads to Earth’s off-screen destruction.

Apologies about the quality in places and also the sound but this doesn't effect watching these (although these are not my video's)
Posted for nothing more than you viewing pleasure. I am not saying I agree with anything dramatised in these video's. Just thought some would like to watch them.

I watched this awhile back, it was pretty fascinating.

They totally missed the boat for the best end of the world senario though...



Seriously...if you make a apocolypse senario documentry and forget zombie outbreak...you fail.

(actually, that is a interesting documentry there...the zombie apoc senario..basically a survive anything mindset)

Nice. Wish I'd seen that when it first aired, but oh well.

Of course, other than Zombies, they missed out Grey Goo, Alien invasion, Relativistic Kill Vehicles, Nuclear War, and my personal favourite, The Milky Way gets absorbed by Andromeda, the Supermassive black holes at the center of each merge, and due to gravitational fluctuations Earth gets eaten by the new black hole....

Here it is, infact:
