I wish they would release this documentary on DVD!
I only saw a handful of the "When Havok Struck" series, but it left quite an impression on me. The first episode I saw was the one about airplane disasters. I remember the show featuring the Canary Islands disaster when a jet crashed into another jet on the runway with still pictures of the carnage. The episode aired while I was sick as a dog with the flu for a full week in early 1978. The creepy soundtrack music and downright morbid content of the show was enhanced by my "altered" mental status due to the influenza at the time. I did manage to watch 2 or 3 more episodes, but they weren't quite as powerful as the air disaster episode. The chances of these shows being released on video one day are probably slim to none, but I sure would enjoy seeing them again.
