    Ever think about running away to join the circus? Well here's your chance. Join Riley as he travels to Las Vegas to help high-flying Cirque du Soleil solve a real show-stopper of a problem.

For the crack team of experts in charge of nursing it back to health, this fix is a huge leap without a net. It's never been attempted before. For the actors and acrobats who rely on the 40-ton stage every night, it could be a matter of life and death. While in Sin City, Riley will cruise the strip to join some other teams racing against the clock to keep the world's most amazing spectacles up and running. For these men and women, failure is not an option. The show must go on!

    9/11, Season 4 | Episode 1

    Tuesday, September 11, 2001, a temperate and nearly cloudless morning over the eastern United States. Millions of men and women ready themselves for work. Among them is an air traffic controller in Boston, Mass. Based on sheer intuition, he will break all protocol this morning, alerting the Air Force that a potential disaster is unfolding on his radar screen. Air Force Colonel Bob Marr, commander NEADS (North East Air Defense Sector] will scramble all he has to try and avert a catastrophe - but it will consist of only two F-15's that begin "searching for a needle in a haystack". Meanwhile, a group of 19 young men armed with simple box cutters literally fly under the radar into the World Trade Center , The Pentagon, and a Pennsylvania field. From the viewpoint of these two key theaters of action, Air Traffic Control and the U.S. Air Force, "Seconds From Disaster: 9/11" deconstructs, second-by-second, the tragic events and security lapses that led to the worst attacks on American soil since Pearl Harbor. The episode contains chilling testimony from the Air Force Colonel Bob Marr , Air Traffic Controller Dave Bottiglia, Ben Sliney, the man who makes the call to ground all the planes in the air over the U.S. and John Farmer Senior Counsel for the Presidential Commission. The question has to be asked: even on the day, could 9/11 been stopped?

    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.
