How to Survive a Disaster

Synopsis
When disaster strikes who lives and who dies is not purely a matter of luck - in every disaster there are things that can be done to increase the chances of getting out alive. HORIZON has gathered a team of experts to produce the ultimate guide to disaster survival. Through experiments, computer simulations and analysis of hundreds of survivor testimonies, they will reveal what happens in the mind in the moment of crisis and how the human brain can be programmed for survival.
