Filmed over seven months, the series follows Heathrow's army of 76,000 staff – from baggage handlers to air traffic controllers – as they attempt to safely process 200,000 passengers every single day, and race to get thousands of planes away on time.
Storm Imogen causes chaos on the runways and in the terminals. Airside Safety Officer Simon keeps his eyes pealed for any potentially dangerous debris that could damage the landing planes. In Terminal 4, Manager Sunita looks after dozens of passengers whose flight to Delhi has been cancelled.
Trainee Engineer Elliot prepares to get his hands dirty as he clears a blocked sewage pit – an essential part of the airport operation that no passenger normally sees.
Meanwhile, there are emotional reunions in arrivals and staff from the Animal Reception Centre welcome an exotic shipment of feathered friends from Canada.
