On the occasion of the 70th commemoration of the 1953 flood disaster, NTR has produced a four-part documentary series "The water is coming. Using archive material and penetrating eyewitness accounts, the four documentaries map out how the disaster was able to happen, how insufficient anticipation of the impending danger was made beforehand, and what we have learned from the disaster. Winfried Baijens presents Het water komt.
The 1953 flood disaster does not stand alone. Water runs like a thread through Dutch history. In the free podwalk app Het water comes seven GPS-guided audio tours with stories about cities and villages where violent flood disasters took place: so too did Dordrecht.
