This review is from: ABC News: Tsunami - Wave of Destruction (DVD)
There isn't any 8 mm footage in this show. That is entirely inaccurate and irresponsible. There is consumer grade mini dv footage, and probably even some video phone footage, because that is what you get with natural disasters. There is professional mini DV and betacam footage. There is some studio stuff, but mostly field reports from Diane Saywer and others, as well as interviews with Colin Powell, Kofi Anan, aid workers, locals, tourists, etc.
Some of the reporters visted remote areas within a couple days of the disaster. The reports are raw and timely.
