On the 11th of November, 2000, a fire began on board a train carrying passengers up to a ski resort in Kaprun, Austria. Automated safety systems brought the train to a halt in a tunnel midway to its destination – while almost at the same moment the flames destroyed the hydraulic system which controlled the doors. The 162 passengers on board were now trapped twice over – locked inside a burning train that was, itself, stalled inside a smoke-filled tunnel. Despite valiant efforts on the part of many on board, the vast majority of passengers would not survive.

I tell the true stories behind some of history's greatest disasters... but without sensationalism or disturbing imagery. Fascinating Horror is all about in-depth research, respectful storytelling, and learning what we can from the mistakes of the past. You might be surprised to discover just how much of today's world is shaped by long-forgotten disasters from decades gone by.

CORRECTIONS: At one point in this video I mistakenly give the height of Mount Kitzsteinhorn as "3,000 metres (or around 5,000 feet)". This is an incorrect conversion - I should have said "10,000 feet".
