From The Radio Times
Set in real time, with a minute-by-minute relay of events, this drama starts just before 10pm on 6 July, the exact moment 20 years ago when the first devastating explosion occurred on the Piper Alpha oil platform in the North Sea. The harrowing fate of workers trying to escape this hell on hot metal by jumping into a burning sea would be gratuitously gruesome were it not for the fact that it was horribly real.
