Volcanoes have always both fascinated and frightened mankind. Often causing massive loss of life, they've been worshipped as gods, and feared as homes for the devil. They emit huge amounts of poison gas and ash, yet provide some of the most fertile land on Earth. In this Globe Trekker Special our travellers Megan McCormick, Ian Wright, Justine Shapiro, Alex Riley, and Sami Sabiti explore the world's most spectacular volcanoes, travelling from the heart of Europe, across the Atlantic and Caribbean, to the deadly Pacific Ring of Fire. Along the way: Visit the Italian island of Stromboli, which has been continually erupting for at least a thousand years Meet survivors of the Mount St Helens eruption in 1980 Tour the ruins of Pompeii destroyed 79AD See the Greek island of Santorini where a volcano destroyed local Minoan cities around 1500 BC Running time 120 minutes
