Nova's Sinkholes--Buried Alive

I was one of the consultants to the Nova Film, Sinkholes--Buried Alive that showed recently on PBS.  You can watch the whole thing here.

What did you think of it?  I was trying to keep it focused science and less on some of the sensational elements of sinkholes.

Sinkholes cause millions of dollars worth of damage every year in the United States.  They are less of a risk to life than they are to property.  While there has been some tragic loss of life, the real issue is associated with property.  How do we manage the costs of the many homes that are damaged each year?

By the way, to learn more about sinkholes, particularly Florida sinkholes, you can buy my book here.
