    Chicago Air Crash, Season 3 | Episode 9

    On 25 May, 1979, a McDonell Douglas - DC10 aircraft, packed with holiday and business travellers takes off from Chicago's O'Hare Airport in the U.S. Only 31 seconds after take-off at 3:04 PM, the plane slams into a trailer park community. Hundreds of witnesses claim to have seen an engine separate from the wing upon take-off, but the three-engine DC10 should have been able to fly using just one engine. The experienced crew was thoroughly trained and the plane received routine maintenance just weeks before. Investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board must attempt to rebuild the plane from tiny pieces of debris and perform a second-by-second examination to find out what caused Flight 191 to crash, claiming the lives of 273 people. The terrifying conclusion propels aviation maintenance regulations into the future.

    Paddington Rail Disaster, Season 4 | Episode 4

    October 5th 1999, a passenger train leaving London Paddington during the morning rush hour collides with an incoming train at a combined speed of 209 kph. The impact, and an unprecedented 20-meter high fireball, that sweeps over the mangled carriages, kills 29 passengers and both drivers, and leaves hundreds injured and trapped in the twisted wreckage. The original lead investigators recreate their analysis of how two trains came to be travelling towards each other on the same stretch of track, and why automatic warning systems and fully functioning brakes were not enough to prevent one of the worst rail accidents in British history. Step by step reconstruction of the circumstances reveals a startling history of near misses that should have made one of the worst rail accidents in British history avoidable.

But as the new reservoir fills, a vast section of mountainside is dislodged and creeps toward the lake. The power company know the landslide has the potential to cause a devastating tsunami if it hits the water at speed, so they develop a plan to ease the landslide down by adjusting the level of the lake. For three years there are no problems, but in October 1963, the landslide suddenly accelerates - and slams into the reservoir as fast as a formula one car - creating a tsunami 200 meters high which overtops the dam and swamps the valley below - killing more than 2000 people. Seconds from Disaster reveals the systematic errors that led to tragedy - and sheds new light on the landslide mechanism that has intrigued scientists for 50 years.
