Tsunami: Where Was God? (102 mins) [S]
7pm 27 Dec 2009 Channel 4

Taking as his subject the Indian Ocean tsunami of Christmas 2004, former Dominican Friar Mark Dowd confronts a question that has troubled religious thinkers for centuries: how can belief in a benevolent god be reconciled with natural disaster?

I did see the last few minutes of the programme, and ended something like he didn't believe God was a benevolent God chasing around after his creation, ie free will and the old monto "God acts in mysterious ways". The only other part of the show I saw was about a Buddhist Monk (ex engineer) who was building fishing boats for the surviving fishermen.
