Extraordinary drone footage reveals the extent of the devastation. Among the burnt-out forests, rescuers seek out injured koalas and kangaroos left helpless by the fires. The programme also features testimony from those who only just escaped their burning homes with their lives; as well as hearing from some of those who have returned back to their destroyed homes, some of whom have lost everything – belongings, livelihoods and loved ones. With extreme record-breaking temperatures and drought said to have super charged the bushfires, the film also explores the wider concerns around climate change. Is this disaster, described by some as apocalyptic, a glimpse into a future world where temperatures have been allowed to rise to dangerous levels?
