Quoting tayser (Reply 2): 4 corners is a current affairs/investigative journalism show... not reporting-of-the-news per se.
My mistake. The bits at the beginning and end made it appear to be a news show. I used to live in Australia but I had never even heard of this show!
Also curious to see how Alan Joyce only found out about the incident when his people saw the stock price plunging. There has to be at least a dozen people at Flight Ops who could have taken a moment to notify the man at the helm of the company before Twitter got a hold of the story.
Do you watch Mayday? (Air Crash Investigation for my Australian friends). It's mostly filmed in Canada. Quite a few episodes have been done at YFD about 45 minutes from my house. It's currently in its 11th season and is still holding strong and consistently putting out great production.
