Discovery Networks International (DNI) has commissioned one-hour documentary Flight 370: The Missing Links, which promises to investigate key questions surrounding the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370.
The ITN Productions-made doc gathers industry experts to discuss the evidence thus far and the implications for the aviation industry. They will also examine aspects of the case such as airport security, air traffic control, on-board communication systems and mechanical failure, among others.
Flight 370 will air in more than 220 countries and territories on the Discovery Channel in early April.
“The mystery of flight MH370 serves as a tragic reminder that technology is indeed fallible,” said Tom Gorham, EP for DNI, in a statement. “With the help of seasoned aviation, tracking and satellite industry experts, Flight 370: The Missing Links explores the events which have unfolded, focusing on just how this could have happened, and examining the inherent flaws in the eco-system of modern international travel.”
Emma Read, head of factual and features at ITN Productions, added: “The disappearance of flight MH370 challenges everything we know about modern aviation technology. This documentary reveals what every passenger should know and the technology being developed now to protect us in the future.”
Flight 370: The Missing Links is commissioned by Elizabeth McIntyre for DNI, and exec produced by Gorham for DNI and Emma Read for ITN.
