Using dramatic recreations and CGI, the program brings the May 20, 1883, eruption to life.

The eruption reduced the island of Krakatoa to a third of its former size and sent waves that reportedly topped 100 feet high crashing onto Asian shores, killing 36,000. Krakatoa airs Friday, August 2 at 7 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD.
