Still Alive (Discovery) – Starts 14th September
Recounting the moment of how three people escaped death, the show uses the actual footage from the survivors as they explain what happened.
In the programme it flits between the three stories as they interview the survivors and some of the witnesses as they talk about how the situation arose, happened and was resolved.
With the footage being so short the programme uses the fractured telling of the stories to pad out the show by repeating everything numerous times. And while the survival incidents may be interesting the way it’s presented makes the show drag along, so it feels like a 20 minute show stretched out to be 45 minutes long.
