PBS celebrates the Thai cave rescue

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019

For 18 days in 2018 the world watched and held its collective breath. Trapped deep underground in a flooded cave in northern Thailand, 12 boys and their football coach awaited rescue. But could they be brought out alive?

Premiering in the UK on the first anniversary of the boys’ rescue, THAI CAVE RESCUE (July 8th, 7.50pm) charts the remarkable story of their release, from the first moments that they found themselves trapped, to the international team of cave divers assembled to locate and bring them to safety.

Featuring interviews with the key people involved, discover the innovation, teamwork and endurance behind the remarkable rescue, as the team raced against time to reach the boys, exploring every option – from pumping out water, to drilling a new exit, to ultimately cave diving with the children.

What the industry says about US

Tristar Products, UK

As a company, we monitor our sales on daily basis and as such we potentially have to change schedules at a moment’s notice. When working with Global listings this is made easy. Their can-do attitude means we are not hindered by bureaucracy or rigid SLAs – we make the change and they do all the hard work... great service!

The Global Listings press schedules are very good. Especially as we have very little space in the TV Guide sections, these are still very useful to us. In addition, the Global Listings TV highlights documents and press reports are also a great way for us to make choices of what TV programmes to feature.
