    Alpine Tsunami, Season 2 | Episode 2

    The village of Galtur, nestled in an Alpine valley and surrounded by towering peaks, is a charming picture-perfect ski resort in Austria, which draws up to 4,000 tourists during the peak ski season. Although Galtur had been declared safe from the threat of avalanches, this idyllic winter paradise was changed within minutes on February 23, 1999. Suddenly that winter afternoon, 187,000 tons of snow break loose from the slope of Grieskopf Mountain, reaching speeds of up to 418 km/h, and crashing into the village's 'safe zone'. The avalanche kills 31 people, and injures many others. An investigation later reveals the underlying weaknesses in the snow pack which caused the disaster and ultimately changed how experts predict avalanches.

    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.

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.
