Ever since humans first tried to understand their own creation, they've been obsessed with their own demise. In this provocative program, explore the numerous scenarios in which people from all walks of life have envisioned the destruction of humankind. Hear from physician and virologist C. J. Peters, who explains how Armageddon could likely come in the form of a deadly virus with very strong pathogenic potential. Next, meet California preacher Stephen Wohlberg, who, along with his wife and young children, eagerly anticipate the apocalyptic end of the world. Travel back in time with two British scientists whose theory about an asteroid impact in the near east thousands of years ago could be the source of dozens of Apocalyptic legends, including the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Finally, hear the chilling story from former Soviet nuclear defense specialist Stanislav Petrov, about the day he saved the world from World War III. From matters of faith to scientific theories to conscious choices, Apocalypse is a fascinating journey through the history and psychology behind humankind's preoccupation with the end of the world.
