    Mountain Tsunami, Season 5 | Episode 2

    In 1960 construction of Europe's tallest dam is completed in in the Vajont Valley in Northern Italy - the jewel in the crown of an ambitious hydro-electric generation scheme. But as the new reservoir fills, a vast section of mountainside is dislodged and creeps toward the lake. The power company know the landslide has the potential to cause a devastating tsunami if it hits the water at speed, so they develop a plan to ease the landslide down by adjusting the level of the lake. For three years there are no problems, but in October 1963, the landslide suddenly accelerates - and slams into the reservoir as fast as a formula one car - creating a tsunami 200 meters high which overtops the dam and swamps the valley below - killing more than 2000 people. Seconds from Disaster reveals the systematic errors that led to tragedy - and sheds new light on the landslide mechanism that has intrigued scientists for 50 years.

Facing the death penalty, Tim plead guilty and was sentenced to life in Bang Kwang Central Prison. Depressed, he began to use heroin and after two years, tested HIV positive.
