There’s nothing I love more than a good airport documentary. National Geographic has done a great “Ultimate Airport Dubai” series, which, as the name suggests, follows operations at Dubai Airport. I loved the whole first season, and the show is now back for a second season.
It looks like BBC Three is producing a six episode series about Bangkok Airport, which promises to be pretty hilarious. Here’s a 30 second trailer:
And then here’s the description:
Bangkok Airport (w/t) – 6 x 60 minutes
Bangkok airport, the gateway to South-East Asia, is a thriving, bustling hub of excitement and anticipation, of pale arrivals to tanned departures and everything in between. BBC Three has gained unparalleled access to all aspects of the airport in this thrilling six-part series which sees young Brits passing through to embark on adventures of a lifetime. Each episode follows some of the thousands of youth British travellers checking in and checking out, run-ins with the tourist police, incidents in immigration, customs, treatment at the on-site medical centre, missed flights, expired passports and emergencies abroad. The action takes place inside and occasionally outside the airport – at island trouble spots and the British Embassy in downtown Bangkok. And in a unique twist, contributors’ UGC (user generated content) will be used alongside fly-on-the-wall docusoap content. Bangkok Airport is made by Keo Films. It is series produced by Fiona Inskip and executive produced by Paula Trafford. BBC commissioning editor is Sam Bickley.
Who’s excited? 🙂
