Synopsis: Timely yet terrifying, The Flood predicts the unthinkable. When a raging storm coincides with high seas it unleashes a colossal tidal surge, which travels mercilessly down England's East Coast and into the Thames Estuary. Overwhelming the Barrier, torrents of water pour into the city. The lives of millions of Londoners are at stake. Top marine engineers and barrier experts Rob, his ex-wife Sam and his father Leonard Morrison, have only a few hours to save the city from total devastation. A real probability in a real location. It is not a question of if, but when London floods.

Hi, Dad. Just calling

to remind you

it's your granddaughter's

christening at ten o'clock.

- I haven't forgotten.

- Please don't be late.

And, uh... Dad, just so you know...

Rob's coming.

- I see. - I didn't think he'd

be able to make it but...

(Baby cries)

Yes. It's been a long time.

Are you sure this is a good idea?

Yes. I do.

But does Rob know I'll be there?

Dad, I want you there

and your granddaughter wants you

there. It's a big day for her, you know.

So no excuses, please.

- Ten o'clock, then.

- Don't be late.

(Reporters) Deputy Prime Minister!

Good morning.

Good morning, Reverend.

How you holding up?

Well, we're used to turbulent

weather here in Scotland.

But this... this was something else.

We... we just were not prepared.

And why weren't

we given any warning?

Sir, do you have any idea of the

fatalities we've experienced today?


No. No, I haven't.

(Reporter) Do you have

any advice for us?

What's your name?

What's her name?

- Her name is Kirstie. - Kirstie?

That's a... very pretty name.

A very pretty name.

Why wasn't I informed

about Arbroath?

Set up a meeting with Hopkins

from the Met Office

and Fuller from the

Environment Agency.

They better damn well have

an explanation!

- (Woman) Hey, Kate. - Look,

you'll have all the help you need.

- Just in time.

- I've gotta go. Bye.

- Minute to spare.

- You didn't have to come back for this.

- What kind of uncle do you take me for?

- Thank you.

(Church bell)

- Waiting on someone?

- It's probably just as well.

We thank You, Almighty God,
