NOVA: Bombing Hitler’s Dams

NOVA is well-known for its engaging documentaries and the team delivers once more with “Bombing Hitler’s Dams.” Located within the Military + Espionage section of the NOVA site, this episode follows experts as they recreate the 1943 efforts of the “dam buster” pilots and their one-of-a-kind bouncing bomb. A revolutionary secret weapon, the bomb was used to destroy two German dams, effectively cutting off the water supply to vital arms factories during WWII. The entire episode (nearly 2 hours in length) can be viewed here, accompanied by a complete Transcript of the program and Related Links, such as “D-Day’s Sunken Secrets” and “Escaping a Nazi Prison Camp.” Visitors can also read through the TV Schedule to view Upcoming Broadcasts or Recent Broadcasts that can all be viewed online and are accompanied by related websites, articles, interviews, slideshows, and other great features.
