CNN Headline News - Showbiz Tonight - National Geographic Special

A piece on National Geographic's prior reporting on New Orleans will air on Showbiz Tonight, CNN Headline News, 7 & 11 Eastern, 4 & 8 Pacific

This will be worth watching.

Some of the script:
LAST YEAR, A NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EXPLORER TV SPECIAL...

"VIOLENT EARTH"... FEATURED A DOOMSDAY SCENARIO OF WHAT A MAJOR HURRICANE COULD DO TO NEW ORLEANS.

A DOOMSDAY SCENARIO THAT TURNED OUT TO BE FRIGHTENINGLY ACCURATE.

"its achilles heel is a densley populated region that lies below sea level... locals call it the bowl"

"when a big storm does strike the big easy it could likely fill the bowl"

"a storm surge bursts over the levees and has nowhere to go. the city becomes a lake"
