Singapore Airlines Turbulence Doc Sells Around The World


Singapore Turbulence Doc Sells Around The World

A wealth of broadcasters have funded a fast-turnaround doc about turbulence following the tragic Singapore Airlines disaster. Turbulence: How Safe is Your Flight? has landed investment from ITV (UK), Seven (Australia), WELT (Germany), TV4 (Sweden), MTV (Finland), TV2 (Denmark), RTL (Netherlands), DPG (Belgium), RTS (Switzerland) and SRL DA (worldwide), with discussions ongoing with broadcasters in other territories. The single doc uses minute-by-minute analysis of flight SQ321 to examine the science of turbulence – exploring its causes, effects, and implications, what pilots can do to avoid it and whether this is a phenomenon that is getting worse as a result of climate change. Featuring exclusive interviews with passengers, pilots and air crew, the documentary provides an account of how pilots and aircraft deal with mid-flight challenges caused by turbulence. The doc follows last month’s tragic incident when a British man died from a suspected heart attack onboard after severe turbulence on the Singapore Airlines flight. Passengers recounted scenes of terror and said many had feared for their lives. Emporium Productions is behind the doc and Silverlining Rights is distributing. “Turbulence: How Safe Is Your Flight? has mass global appeal and we expect more broadcasters and platforms to come on board with this topical, eye-opening and informative documentary,” said Silverlining MD Bethan Corney.
