Ter­ror at Sea: The Sink­ing of the Con­cor­dia

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Sun­day, 6.30pm, Ten (One) Last week, five crew mem­bers of the Costa Con­cor­dia, which ran aground off the Ital­ian is­land of Giglio last year killing 32 peo­ple, re­ceived jail sen­tences for their part in the disas­ter. The cap­tain, Francesco Schet­tino, 52, goes be­fore the court in Septem­ber on charges of mul­ti­ple man­slaugh­ter and aban­don­ing ship. So al­though this ex­cel­lent doc­u­men­tary was shown in Fe­bru­ary, it’s worth watch­ing again for a re­minder of how the farce turned into tragedy. It uses real-time footage and ex­clu­sive in­ter­views with sur­vivors, res­cuers and ex­perts to re­con­struct the events.
