Summary
Disaster - Series 3 uncovers the chilling truths behind some of the worst catastrophes in the last 50 years. These include: the 1989 sinking of the Marchioness on the River Thames, grave errors made in cervical smear testing, the Japan air flight JAL 123 crash in 1985 and follows the horrifying fire discovered in Britain's first nuclear reactor at Windscale in 1957. The Marchioness - 51 people lost their lives when the 'Bowbelle' dredger collided with this passenger boat. Severn Tunnel, In December 1991 - two passenger trains collided in the 6.5km long tunnel under the River Severn in England, 185 people were injured. Rescuers did not reach the train until two hours after the accident. JAL 123 - In August 1985, Japan Air Flight 123 crashed into the side of a mountain northwest of Tokyo. It was the largest single aircraft fatality in history. 520 people died. A poor repair was the cause. A Cancer in the System - Women died because their cervical smear slides were confused and incorrectly analysed. Deadly Metal - A radiotherapy machine was mistakenly sold to a scrap yard. More radioactive material was released than the Three Mile Island disaster. The Windscale Fire - Britain's first nuclear reactor caught fire in 1957. One error, however slight, can result in deaths.
