The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Sun­day, 7pm, CI When po­lice and the pub­lic lock brains, it can spell cur­tains for crim­i­nals. This new Bri­tish se­ries, which has ac­cess to un­der­cover po­lice op­er­a­tions, re­veals how of­fend­ers get caught in the act through the use of hid­den cam­eras, stake-outs and some­times less or­tho­dox meth­ods. There’s a cou­ple who hide all night in their con­fec­tionary shop to catch a thief, and a fa­ther who waits in a wardrobe to catch a carer steal­ing from his dis­abled son. Th­ese cases are not re-en­act­ments — they’re ac­tual footage of stings pro­duced in court. sup­posed to take only two days but af­ter some hair-rais­ing in­ci­dents ends up tak­ing six. The beauty of the jun­gle, the in­ge­nu­ity of the en­gi­neer­ing and the vil­lagers’ en­thu­si­asm more than com­pen­sate. 82nd floor of the World Trade Cen­tre’s north tower when it was hit.

Two fire­fight­ers, Mike Mora­bito and Mike Lyons, had been or­dered to stop search­ing but they dis­obeyed — and found Buzzelli with just a busted an­kle. Ru­mours of his sur­vival cir­cu­lated but were dis­missed as im­pos­si­ble — un­til now. Tonight’s pro­gram pieces to­gether what hap­pened from in­ter­views with wit­nesses and home videos. As Buzzelli’s wife, Louise, says: un­be­liev­able.
