QF32, A380, exploding engine and Rolls Royce - listen to the full story on what happened

ABC radio national's current affairs program Background Briefing just published a piece titled "The airline, the engine maker, the 500 passengers and their luck escape".

It contains the most comprehensive analysis I have seen/heard on what happened on that flight and the subsequent battles between Qantas, Rolls Royce, Airbus and others. What makes this reporting particularly interesting is the balance they have met between keeping the explanations simple and digestible for the less technically minded while covering a lot of ground and detail on what spun off where and hit what causing the other thing to explode. This link gives you access to a download, stream or transcript.
