Help me find this TV Show/Special

Post by colemoge » Fri Aug 19, 2011 3:09 pm

I watched a pretty darn good documentary that imagined a mammoth outbreak of a flu-like virus that came from the West Coast USA and then spread across the entire North America.

It was on a channel like Discovery, National Geographic or A&E. I simply cant for the life of me remember the name of it!! Its driving me nuts.

It came on about a year ago.

It followed the virus starting on the USA west coast, then followed a family (husband, wife and thier pre teen son) as they joined others in the Mass Migration effect from the major cities in CA out into the desert and country-like areas.

I remember it so clearly! It was at elast an hour long, and had specialists and professionals from all disciplines weighing in on survival tips. The family left the city, braved the roads, came across dead areas, small fortified towns. Had to learn about eating bugs and catching snakes. Came across cars and looters.

It follows the family for several years and how they eventually wind up in a community trying to survive. THe dad was some sort of paramedic and he becomes the community doctor. THe dad eventually dies from an infection that goes septic after getting cut up and being unable to treat the infection with any type of anti biotic.

It ends with the son, now a father himself, in the same community that has become a bit more thriving, visiting his dad's grave and watching some of the video his dad had taken with his camera. The now-adult-son walks off to go assume gaurd duty or work a field at the end of the documentary.

I found it very very good and really want to watch it again. I actually learned some things from it.

Can anyone PLEASE help me out?

I've searched over and over for it. :?: :?: :?:

Discovery Channel show called After Armageddon - it can be found on youtube and a few other places. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diyBq8gY ... er&list=UL

I've shown this to a few new preppers to show what NOT to do.
