Mount St. Helens - Life from Zero
Mount St. Helens – Life from Zero is story of resilience of nature, set against the amazing backdrop of the largest natural laboratory in the world. This living laboratory was created when St. Helens's volcano erupted in 1980. One of the greatest natural disasters of our time, it turned a pristine forested mountain into a barren landscape as lifeless as Mars.
The slopes of St. Helens are still closed to the outside world. What has happened there remains the secret of the award winning biologist Charlie Crisafulli, the only scientist who has stayed with the site over the last 27 years, a dramatic period of hope and fear. He provides an insight into this amazing resurrection for the first time, exclusively.
It is a nature and science documentary telling a unique story of determination and perseverance – of nature struggling to live and of man sacrificing all to witness that miracle.
