Part 1 was called Air Crashes Impact.
Here is the program summaries from Channel 4:
Monday, 17 February, 9pm
Impact examines the experiences of aeroplane crashes through the eyes of six survivors from six different crashes; looking at the physical and psychological plight of those inside a crashing airliner, how they perceive what is happening to them, what determines whether they live or die, and what happens to those who survive the moment of impact.
Monday, 24 February, 9pm
Aftermath tells how caring for the bereaved and the victims of air crashes is something that has evolved gradually, tragedy by tragedy. Aircrash looks at the recovery of bodies, the identification of remains and the return of personal effects to the bereaved. Focusing on American Airline flight 587, America's second-worst aircrash, which plunged into a New York suburb shortly after take off, the film covers the horrendous way families of aircrash victims have been treated in the past compared with today.
Monday 3 March, 9pm
Surviving an air crash is just the beginning of an ordeal that has no end. The third and final programme in the series looks at the long-term human consequences: what happens months and years later to those who survived - and to the families and friends of those who did not. Some are shattered permanently by air disasters; others are re-traumatised by litigation. But many survivors and family members become powerful advocates for air safety, founding organisations, battling government bureaucracies and airlines, and seeking compensation. Such legal processes can be long and brutal. Ultimately it isn't about the money; it's about finding meaning to their loss.
