The Screen Guide

Nowhere is as ravaged by fires as Australia. 2013 was the hottest year on record and our land was ablaze. Each fire season the battle rages as we go Inside the Inferno in this 2-part documentary series exploring the deadly natural enemy that affects us all. Australia has the largest firefighting force in the world with a volunteer army of over 200,000 - double that of the military. More than a million Australians have built homes in fire zone areas. BUSHFIRES - INSIDE THE INFERNO is the most comprehensive examination ever attempted of the science of Australian bushfires.
