Eruption( Visual )

2 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in Spanish and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Clive, who believes an eruption is less than a week away, must convince his skeptical colleagues to take the threat seriously and evacuate Auckland City. Meanwhile, Clive's ambitious wife Mere is livid that his scientific discovery could interrupt a major cruise ship visit to the city. As the activity moves closer to the surface, Clive turns to the media to get Aucklanders to listen to him, enlisting the help of popular talkback radio hosts BJ and Buckle. Against a backdrop of impressive special effects, the tightly-directed drama follows residents who have much bigger personal problems than a volcano in their back garden. In scientist Clive de Roo's own family, his daughter Molly wants a meeting about her stepmother Mere's drinking problem, but neither Clive nor Mere will give her the time. Meanwhile, inner-city Chinese couple Jet and Wei Wei struggle with language barriers and their superstitious landlady. Oliver and Peni, two young brothers who should be in school, race into town to see the volcano, as their mother lies in hospital. And a marae expecting a large contingent of tourists from the cruise liner must make room for locals instead
