Flight 1971: Trailer
“Twenty miles north of Tehran is a crime scene involving 300 Britons."
From the Creative Director of Drama in 10, comes Flight 1971 - a heart-stopping conspiracy thriller set in the world of air crash investigation featuring a brilliant international cast of new voices.
Flight 1971 is on a routine flight from Bangkok to London when all communication is lost several hours into the flight. The plane makes a disastrous course change into Iranian military airspace, where it is blown out of the sky, killing everyone onboard.
Was this a hijacking gone wrong? Nobody knows except that peace in the region now moves a step closer to war. But with Iran refusing international assistance to help investigate the crash they turn to Dr. Maryam Bayat, a fallen-from-grace British-Iranian air crash investigator whose father was murdered by the Iranian regime, to uncover the deadly truth of what happened to the passengers and crew of Flight 1971.
Flight 1971 is a new 13-part episodic series launching on May 26th, 2023 that kick-starts season two of Drama in 10s new original long-form drama series featuring a full cast of new voices and experimental storytelling in audio fiction. Each new episode launches on the third Thursday of the month, with double episodes planned for later in 2023.
