This weekend Swiss newspapers report that Swiss Publice Service Television (SF) is currently producing a documentary about the fall of Swissair.
So why are they nów producing yet another documentary on this painful - at least for all but the youngest Swiss - topic. documentary editorial stuff in SF has been thinning about that for a long time, says Otto C. Honegger, the departments boss.
The new documentary is meant to show a new view of the airlings grounding. SF speaksperson Urs Durrer told Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ ) confirmed that airing is scheduled for October 2, 2006, The fifth year of the bankruptcy.
While director Michael Steiner's very successful (in Switzerland) cinema movie "Grounding" illuminates only the last few days of Swissair, Swiss Television's documentary, the title of which has not been fixed yet, is going to look at the last few years. It is not just about the "Grounding" but about a larger picture of the fall of the airline, says Durrer.
