    Good BBC documentary. Like the latest style they are using in their documentary’s and news programs. This one is good and lets you find out what has happened to those we saw in videos of the destruction.

    I was in Japan when the disaster happened. In Shinjuku, the giant screens were showing images from the coasts, everybody was so shocked. Hundreds of people were staring at the screens in utter silence, and everybody knew they had lost at least one friend, or family. I am sure dozens of people around me were actually from the North East.
    I hope there will be ceremonies everywhere on March 11th this year, in memory of the many who lost their lives.
