Summary From the Western Frontier, part of NITV's Reconciliation Week programming, features three contemporary, positive and inspirational documentaries that encapsulate the theme of Defining Moments. These stories illustrate a pivotal moment in a person's life that has changed them, the world they live in, or contributed to defining the person that they are today.As a young boy growing up in Onslow, Western Australia, Patrick Tittums dreamed of flying a plane. Inspired by the adventures of pilot James 'Biggles' Bigglesworth, in the books that his mother would buy for him, Patrick let his imagination run wild and a lifelong passion for flying developed. But in his teenage years, bowing to peer pressure, he took to drinking alcohol. A seemingly harmless and fun pastime quickly spiralled out of control and for nearly thirty years, he toiled in the dark times until the thunderstorm of life washed him clean and he took control of his journey to fly into clear skies. Thunderstorms is a deeply personal documentary about one man's journey in the face of adversity; a testament that anyone can achieve greatness once their storm has passed.Follow the conversation on Twitter: #NITV
