NBC NATIONAL NEWS — The 'end of the world' talk has journalists pouring into a small village in France.
Bugarach is believed to be one of the only places that will survive the supposed doomsday when the Mayan calendar ends on December 21.
So many journalists are in the small town, that their numbers could actually surpass those of the 200 people who live in the village.
Villagers have received passes letting them go in and out as a way to regulate traffic.
