The world's most active volcano is on Hawaii's Big Island. Its latest eruption began in 1983 and it hasn't stopped since. Filmmaker Paul Atkins finds himself getting a shot few have ever filmed: the cataclysmic meeting of 2,000-degree lava and 75-degree ocean water, a true sight to behold. Bonus program: Violent Hawaii. Documents a place of idyllic beauty that is also a land of volcanic fury, raging mountaintop blizzards, dangerous rockslides, monster waves, and tsunamis.

The first doc was interesting because they demonstrated how it is that they track a volcano's activity, using sound, heat signatures, and other methods of data analysis. The second doc was not as interesting, was a bit repetitive given we watched the first one and I had a hard time staying awake.

Outstanding pair of documentaries from PBS on the volcanic nature of the Hawaiin islands. Well worth watching.
