The waters around Alcatraz island are ‘drained’ in this documentary, which exposes San Francisco Bay to be a fascinating and turbulent area. Earthquake marks can be seen on the dry bay floor, giving scientists an estimate of when the next one will strike – and what may happen if it does. Not only that, but the emptying indicates why the renowned Alcatraz island jail, located to the south of the bay, was so difficult to escape.
