First of six drama-documentaries reconstructing events at the heart of technological disasters.
On the night of 6 July 1988 the Piper Alpha oil rig exploded. Of the 226 men on board, 167 were killed. The others survived by jumping 100ft into the sea, despite having been told that this meant certain death. Using archive footage, interviews with safety experts and re-enactments, the programme examines events during one crucial hour of the disaster and demonstrates that there were points when the loss of life could have been avoided. Narrated by John Nettles.
