RSI LA1, the Swiss Italian-language television network, last month broadcasted a one hour documentary, Mare deserto , produced by Emiliano Bos and Paul Nicol. The documentary is in Italian. It investigates the events that occurred between 25 March and 10 April 2011 when a disabled migrant boat attempting to travel from Libya to Italy drifted for days during which time approximately 60 persons died. Survivors from the migrant boat reported that at various times military ships and helicopters ignored their requests for assistance. The producers located and interviewed 9 of the known survivors in Italy, Tunisia and Norway.
