Sunday Times of London Editorial on Supervolcano Scaremongering

Get under the sofa or we'll get avian flu when the supervolcano erupts
Notebook by Mick Hume

"Supervolcano is the BBC’s latest doomsday docudrama, about a supposed eruption in Yellowstone Park that leads to global catastrophe. Introduced as “a true story that hasn’t happened yet” (which sounds like what we used to call fiction), Supervolcano was watched by 7.3 million people. More than four million then turned over for the follow-up documentary about “the science behind the drama”, a remarkable eruption of public concern for a quiet Monday evening."
