◎主 演 National Geographic
A NEW brand and returnable series for NGC and International Co-production. A sharp and smart approach that builds on the success of Seconds From Disaster. Compelling stories of major incidents unpacked. In each Situation Critical we unpack a major incident combining eyewitness and expert testimony, archive, dramatic reconstructions and the latest CGI. The narrative arc will progress through a timeline that chronologically builds throughout the show as we intercut between the perpetrators and the heroes. There will be powerful human interest - heroism, human error and compelling tales of survival. We will create new signature elements, using photo-real CGI & crystal vision CGI to give greater context. And there will be a clever Nat Geo spin - reflecting geographically and culturally the location of each incident.
E01: Hollywood Shootout
On February 28, 1997, LAPD officers spot a robbery in progress while on routine patrol. But the situation that follows is about to turn Hollywood movie-nasty. For 40 minutes, the robbers easily outgun the LAPD in one of the most violent shootouts in US history. Squad cars are destroyed and nine officers and two civilians are shot in a hail of more than 1,100 rounds. But, miraculously, only the perpetrators die. How did two men keep dozens of fully armed police officers at bay? How did police keep themselves and many civilians from being fatally shot? How were the two criminals finally subdued?
E02: Taliban Uprising
When thousands of Taliban surrender to the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan, it appears as if America has won a key battle.

Among the Taliban fighting to the death is an American, John Walker Lind.
E03: SAS Jungle Rescue
Elite British soldiers mount a daring rescue in a diamond-rich African trouble-spot. Eleven British peacekeepers and a Sierra Leone Army officer have been kidnapped by a notorious rebel gang, the so-called West Side Boys. High on drink and drugs and armed to the teeth, these guys are no pushovers. British Special Forces, the SAS, have a motto: Who Dares Wins. How appropriate for an audacious operation that would set the standard for 21st century military raids. How did the rebels capture and keep British hostages for more than two weeks? And how did the British assault force mount such a successful attack on an unpredictable and heavily-armed rebel group?
E04: Apollo 13
Apollo 13 is on its way to the moon in 1970 with three astronauts aboard, for the most challenging of lunar missions yet. As Jack Swigert performs the regular housekeeping chore of stirring the oxygen tanks, he unwittingly triggers a catastrophic explosion. How will Mission Control get the ill-fated Apollo 13 home? How long will the lunar module engine function? Will the crew have enough food and water? And how will they cope with the freezer-like conditions?
E05: Downed Pilot
On Friday June 2, 1995, Captain Scott O'Grady is patrolling a NATO no-fly zone over Bosnia when his F-16 aircraft bursts into flames after being hit by a Bosnian Serb missile. The fighter pilot ejects from his disintegrating plane and parachutes to earth, landing deep in hostile territory. With armed militia hot on his heels, O'Grady dives into the undergrowth. Moments later his pursuers pass five feet from his head. For six days, O'Grady evades capture, moving only by night, desperately trying to establish radio contact with his comrades. On the sixth night, a pilot from O'Grady's air base finally hears his radio call, setting into motion a daring, daylight rescue mission by US Marines.
E06: Sydney-Hobart: Hell on High Water
A fleet of 115 yachts sets off on the gruelling 630-mile course of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Twenty-six hours into the race and every competitor's fear becomes a reality - a weather bomb explodes in the treacherous waters of Bass Strait. Even the sturdiest yachts are hammered by 70-knot winds and 100-foot waves, as one of the greatest ocean challenges becomes a desperate race for survival. Countless racing yachts are capsized, sunk or simply left stranded. Australian authorities must now launch one of the largest peacetime rescue operations the world has ever seen.
E07: Hunting Pablo Escobar
In the cocaine capital of the world, violence is the law. One man, more than any other, holds the country in a bloody death grip: Pablo Escobar, the world's most notorious drug-baron. With US support, Colombia's President fights back, but Escobar is too strong. In a desperate bid to bring about peace, the President resorts to offering a tempting deal. If the drug-lord serves just a few years, he will emerge with a clean slate. Escobar surrenders in the early 90's, but the prison offers him a safe place to keep running his drug empire, from where he even continues ordering murders on the outside. When the government decides to act after a year of humiliation, Escobar simply walks past the guards and disappears. What follows is one of the biggest manhunts in history. But can an elite Colombian force, backed by top-secret US military technology, finally get their man? Or will the most ruthless criminal in history slip through the net, and bring an entire country to its knees once more?

October 23, 2002. In the centre of Moscow, just a few miles from the Kremlin, over 50 Chechen terrorists storm the Dubrovka Theatre, home to Russia's first Broadway-style musical "Nord-Ost" and take all of the 900-strong audience hostage. Led by the notorious rebel Movsar Barayev, the terrorists rig the theatre with explosives as the audience is surrounded by female suicide bombers known as the "black widows". The terrorists demands? An end to Russia's long and brutal war with Chechnya. If these conditions are not met, everyone inside will die. Over the next three days President Putin refuses to negotiate with the Chechens and a plan is hatched to use a top-secret 'knock-out' gas which will immobilise both rebel and hostage alike. Initially a success, victory turns to disaster for Russia as hostages start to die in their dozens due to the effects of the gas. What exactly went wrong during the siege of the Dubrovka theatre, why did so many die and why does Russia still, to this day refuse to reveal exactly what the gas was?

A routine flight from Israel to Paris carrying 258 passengers becomes the target for a gang of international terrorists in June of 1976. They hijack the flight and redirect it to Entebbe in Uganda.

Conditions deteriorate and time is running out for the hostages. As the final deadline approaches will Israel cooperate with the terrorists? Is Uganda too far to launch a rescue mission? Will the terrorists begin executing their prisoners? With the lives of so many hanging in the balance the world watches breathlessly, waiting to see how the story will unfold.

U.S. advanced technology indicates the area is clear, but an enemy rocket-propelled grenade unexpectedly hits the chopper. Amidst the chaos, Roberts falls from the helicopter and is left alone on a mountain top with only a light machine gun to defend him against approaching Al Qaeda fighters. Robert's unit realizes he has been left and is determined to save their stranded comrade.

Deep inside Pennsylvania's Quecreek mine, 18 workers descend for their evening shift on 24 July 2002. A few hours later, their lives are plunged into peril when one of the miners accidentally breaks through into a long abandoned mine - unleashing 60 million gallons of stagnant groundwater. Nine of the miners fight their way through the raging torrent and escape. The other nine retreat to the highest section of the mine, where they sit and wait to be drowned by the rising floodwater. Their only hope is that the feverish rescue operation underway 240 feet above their heads will reach them before the water does. 77 hours later, the miners are plucked to safety through a 30-inch wide rescue shaft, drilled by their heroic team of rescuers.
E13: Nightmare on Mt. Hood
One wrong step by a climber on Mount Hood in the US leads to one of America's worst climbing disasters. Linked together by ropes, four climbers steadily trace a path down the mountain slope in May 2002 when one man loses his footing in the icy conditions and crashes into his partners. With no one able to gain footing, the group careens down the mountain, slamming into other climbers along the way. Nine men tumble into a gaping crevasse known as the Bergshrund - three are killed instantly. But for the six survivors, some badly injured, the fight is now to escape the crevasse. Fellow climbers group together to lift them to safety, but as a rescue helicopter approaches, a fresh disaster looms. With TV cameras running, the state-of-art Air Force helicopter loses power in the thin mountain air and crashes to the ground with five crewmembers inside. The lines between rescuer and rescued blurs on one of the most dangerous mountains in America.
