BBC Documentaries in the sky

Emirates, only on Emirates. The best airline in the world right now. By far. 

The economy/coach service is amazing. Especially in the A380 plane.

Wifi aboard, 400 movies on a 15 inch screen, TV Shows, live television, music and a lot of exiting documentaries. 

I just watched two very good documentaries on Emirates ICE. I recommend them both.
First I watched ‘Vikings Uncovered’.  

In the documentary Dan Snow uncovers the lost Vikings in America with space archaeologist Dr Sarah Parcak. 

Sarah uses satellites 383 miles above the earth to spot ruins as small as 30cm buried beneath the surface. As Sarah searches for Viking sites from Britain to America, Dan explores how they voyaged thousands of miles when most ships never left the shoreline. He also tracks their expansion west, first as raiders and then as settlers and traders throughout Britain and beyond to Iceland and Greenland. In North America they excavate what could be the most westerly Viking settlement ever discovered.

Then I watched ‘City in the Skies’, which I loved (being a globetrotter). 

This is a BBC2 documentary about what does it take to get a million people and their luggage off the ground and up in the air? At any one time a million people are airborne. A city in the sky made up of the 100,000 flights that criss-cross the world daily.

These are great shows. Don’t miss them.
