That is what a team of Italian documentary makers found themselves asking when an earthquake hit central Italy in April, destroying an entire city and all its public and private structures in just one day and leaving its population living in emergency tent camps.

The team moved into one of those camps in Abruzzi to witness the everyday lives of the people living there.

From Zero, the resulting Internet documentary series, follows the camp's inhabitants as they struggle to rebuild their lives.

From Zero: Ask the dust is a film about the making of From Zero in which we witness the creativity and spirit of survival that characterises human nature.

From Zero: Ask the dust can be seen on Tuesday, December 22, at the following times GMT: Tuesday: 0830, 1900; Wednesday: 0330, 1400, 2330.
