  5. The Plane Crash wins Best Single Documentary Award

    The 9th Annual Televisual Bulldog Awards are voted for by the 2,400 television executives and those who work in independent production and broadcast to pick out the best UK programmes, indies, and channels of the previous year.



    "The epitome of bold programming: The Plane Crash was years in the planning, stretching powers of persuasion and mastery of health and safety, as well as requiring an airtight strategy to capture everything in one take"

  6. Radio Times asks "How is C4 ever going to top a televised air disaster...?"

    Channel 4's decision to crash a plane in the Mexican desert was evidently rather a good one, as over 3m viewers tuned in last night to see the resulting footage.

    Feature-length documentary The Plane Crash, which aired on Channel 4 yesterday evening between 9-10:30pm, attracted an average audience of 3.1m viewers and earned a 15% share of the audience. Both figures are well above average for prime-time Channel 4, and The Plane Crash was the best-performing programme on C4 yesterday by quite some margin.
