    Interesting programme but would be pissed off if happened just after we win the playoff off final!

    Not if you live in Brighton.
    I've killed women and children. I've killed everything that walks or crawls at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill Archer, for what you done to The Seagulls.

    It's ok, we'd survive with just a few cars floating past the pavilion apparently

    You're pretty low on that hill though buddy...25 metre wave would leave you paddling in your living room. I recommend a bug out room in your loft...just in case!

    Used to be my local 20 years ago, when living in Islingword St. Was real spit and sawdust then.

    Due to the fact the UK is on a craton we pretty much don't need to worry. Saw an interesting Horizon pro ga few years back which suggested that a big chunk of one of the volcanoes on The Canary Islands will break off and slide in to the Atlantic and, that this will devastate the Eastern seaboard of the USA. We might get a 10 ft wave.

    Very wise. The greys might be better choice as they keep a bigger supply of crisps. You might be in for a long stay according to this programme.

    I reckon it would just go all the way up the a23 and put the burning caravans out.

    All very well laughing about this and hope it never happens but living close to sea level does make you think. This area of the East coast has just respected the 60th anniversary of the tidal surge that claimed over 300 lives in one night, and that was 'only' a couple of metres. Flood sirens are located along the coast here but in practice there isn't much you could do to avoid a tsunami.

    There was another TV documentary a year or two ago suggesting a similar tsunami scenario showing the UK at very high risk due to a major landslide in a Norwegian fijord.

    I recall being impressed by the warning systems and road signage around the coastline in New Zealand which clearly showed tsunami evacuation routes. All the locals knew to act without delay if tsunami warnings are heard.
