The first show starts out at the World Trade Center and tracks SAS Flight 911 as it tries to Land at a New York Airport. It then goes on to track what would happen if something went wrong with our modern society. There was a reason that this was the highest rated PBS Show up to that time, but it also is a great piece of nostalgia, simply for the opening subject.
