The City that Waits to Die
San Francisco faces destruction from an earthquake that the experts believe is inevitable and imminent. The death toll could be 100,000, but there appears to have been scandalous neglect in attempts to cut down the risk; for instance, 5,000 children go to schools built along the fault line. This programme is the story of a small group of scientists, who are fighting apathy to try to save their city. It has excited considerable interest in the USA and its showing was one of the factors that led to the setting up of an official Earthquake Hazards subcommittee.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
