Unlike other DVDs in the BBC Disaster series, which focus on one particular disaster, this DVD chooses a number of airline mishaps to underscore issues associated with so called 'pilot error' and the possibilities of engineering such error out of the system.
Drawing on a number of actual and potentially damaging occurrences involving airlines industry investigators looked at the four out of five outcomes that indicated 'pilot error' and realised the situation needed a closer look.
The title of the video 'The Wrong Stuff' is used as a counterfoil to the fighter pilot concept of 'The Right Stuff'... which depicts a rugged competitive individual who, through sheer determination and will pushes through seemingly impregnable barriers to achieve desired outcomes.
