  • Ep 1: Piper Alpha: The Accident That Could Never Happen

    Dec 9 2021

    Michael Caine starts the series with a tragedy involving hundreds of men stationed on the Piper Alpha oil rig in the cold and forbidding waters of the North Sea. It was an accident that went beyond anyone's worst nightmares. 

    In 1988, the doomed oil rig exploded, sparking gas and oil fires that tore through the giant structure. Michael follows the stories of the brave men, who in the face of a catastrophic disaster, worked fearlessly to rescue and save the lives of those on the burning rig and in the freezing North Sea.

Michael explores Anna’s bravery, unbreakable spirit and her refusal to stop reporting, despite knowing the potential consequences. She was assassinated in 2006, paying the ultimate price for her work in speaking truth to power.
