Hunt for survivors of the Japanese tsunami continues

Japan is dealing with its worst disaster since the atomic bombs of 1945. Hundreds of thousands are without food, water or power, while an estimated 500,000 are homeless. Search teams and Japanese soldiers are working round the clock to help, while aid workers from around 70 countries have been flown in to help. The town of Minaimi Sanriku is located several kilometres inland, but that distance didn't prevent it feeling the full force of the tsunami.

Programme prepared by Kate Williams, Marie Billon and Patrick Lovett
