Science Channel investigates one of the most perplexing airplane disasters in recent history with the US Premiere of AIRASIA 8501: ANATOMY OF A CRASH. This fateful event culminated on December 28th, 2014 when AirAsia flight 8501 and its 155 passengers and seven crew members were lost in a storm, 40 minutes into its journey from Indonesia to Singapore. Comparing and contrasting the story of this flight with aviation tragedies of the recent past such as Air France flight 447 and Malaysia Airlines flight 370, this in-depth documentary will examine the impact of the Earth’s increasingly severe weather conditions on the aviation industry. It will also question whether so-called ‘super storms’ are becoming more frequent and severe, while looking at the cutting-edge technology currently being developed to prevent future tragedies.

Reveals the shared narratives found in individual and collective ideologies of hate, and how we as a species can overcome them. For six years the filmmaker worked with unprecedented access to some of the most venomous ideologies and violent conflicts of our time including the white supremacist movement, Christian Fundamentalism as an anti-gay platform, Muslim extremism, the Palestinian Intifada, Israeli settlers and soldiers, and US Forces in Iraq. By juxtaposing this verite footage with interviews from leading sociological, psychological, and neurological experts, and interspersing stories of redemption told by former "combatants", the film weaves a tapestry that reveals both the emotional and biological mechanisms which make all of us susceptible to acts and ideologies of hate, and demonstrates how these very same traits make us equally capable of overcoming them.
