This program charts the birth and development of the weather system called
"El Nino", so-called because it is born at the time Christmas is celebrated.
The most severe El Nino on recored was first noticed in 1982: in Peru, the
fishing waters were 15 degrees above normal, and the catch small; Australia
had its worst drought in a century, the continent became a giant dustbowl,
mini-tornadoes sucked away the topsoil, in February of 1983 a giant dust
storm darkened Melbourne; drought hit India and heavy seas and high tides
pounded the Western U.S.; hurricanes battered Polynesia. This program shows
the ferocity of El Nino, relates it to the ocean waters, and traces the
roots of man's study of waves, ocean currents, and the interaction of sea
