CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA (CNN) — Only a handful of countries in the world have the technical know-how to open a plane’s black box and unlock the secrets inside, and one of those countries is Australia.

If searchers do find the wreckage of MH370, its data recorders could end up in a laboratory in a nondescript government building in the Australian capital Canberra.

CNN’s Michael Holmes goes inside the Australian Transport Safety Bureau to meet the experts who have the experience to decode the data.
