The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Mon­day, 5.30pm, National Ge­o­graphic Best not to watch this riv­et­ing se­ries just be­fore you head for the check-in counter. Change chan­nels if you’re scared of fly­ing. For the rest of us, fol­low­ing foren­sic ef­forts to trace the cause of an air disas­ter makes fas­ci­nat­ing view­ing. This se­ries, launched in 2002 in Canada, uses re-en­act­ments, in­ter­views, wit­ness tes­ti­mony, com­put­er­gen­er­ated im­agery and, where pos­si­ble, cock­pit voice record­ings to re­con­struct the se­quence of events that led to the crash. Tonight’s episode ex­am­ines the Sin­ga­pore Air­lines flight 006 that crashed dur­ing take-off in Tai­wan in 2000. The im­pend­ing typhoon is blamed at first, but tyre marks on the run­way lead in­ves­ti­ga­tors to an­other con­clu­sion.
