Flight 370: The Missing Links Thu, 26 Feb 8:00PM GMT Discovery World (50)

The disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 challenges everything we know about modern aviation technology.

We gather the foremost thinkers in aviation and security in the Situation Room to analyse all the evidence and join the dots on this captivating mystery, and to explore how we can ensure that this never happens again.

As the world follows the story of Flight 370, we have learned that this is not just the story of a missing plane, this is also the story of the frailties of aviation.

Aeroplane technology, as sophisticated as it is, is still fallible to acts of malice, mistake or cost cutting both in the plane and on the ground.

This one-off documentary explores the six missing links following the disappearance – data communication, tracking from the ground, mechanical vulnerability, the black box, ground security and international protocol to investigate what could have happened to the plane that still hasn’t been found.

Following the cafe hostage siege of 15 December 2014, negative media attention in Australia has once again focussed  on Arab communities raising questions about integration and religious extremism.

This series is the inside story of Lebanese Australians living in an area of Sydney called “Punchbowl”, and the challenges they face, but it is also about a wider story of Arab immigration to the West.

In this episode, Once Upon A Time In Punchbowl looks at the period between 1975 and 1996.

The Lebanese Civil War forced around 30,000 Muslims and Christians to flee their homeland and join an exodus to Australia.

Through the eyes of many of those first and second generation immigrants the episode sets the scene, showing how growing up in Sydneywent hand in hand with experiencing violent racism.

When the first Gulf War whipped up anti-Arab sentiment many Lebanese felt they were not respected. A disenfranchised section of the community turn to drugs and guns inviting further criticism from police and politicians.
