Synopsis by Nathan Southern

Chris Morgan narrates this documentary - a co-production of WNET-Thirteen, Nature and PBS - that travels inside of the 2009 brush fires in Victoria, Australia. The two-sided film looks at the devastation, especially in terms of ecological impact (revealing how it reduced the populations of hundreds of species such as koalas, possums, echidnas and gliders); yet it also unveils the Australian biosphere's remarkable ability to heal itself, bouncing back rather quickly in the wake of these calamitous events.
