    The Recruit

    Alaska is America's last frontier; in mid-winter its landscape endures some of the most extreme cold weather on the planet. At the centre of its frozen wilderness rests "Delta Junction" the base camp of the US Army's Extreme Cold Weather Training Course. Hunter Ellis will endure the most challenging nine days of winter training where temperatures can reach -20 degrees Fahrenheit, with wind-chill capable of doubling and even tripling this figure. In these conditions, in as little as 6 minutes, exposed skin can become frostbitten. Hunter and a team of eight hand picked servicemen are going to be tested to their limits....and learn how to survive cold weather combat. Hunter and his team are transported directly into the Alaskan wilderness where their field training starts immediately. They're given basic lessons in rapid succession--how to move using snowshoes, skies and vehicles; how to operate weapons; how to survive the weather. Will they be able to work as a team and succeed?

    Forgotten Sub of WWII.

    On June 20, 1941, the US Submarine O-9 headed out of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and nosed below the surface carrying 33 hands and never returned. Inquiries into her sinking failed to find answers. But 60 years later, she was rediscovered. Today, our team of Deep Sea Detectives heads out with the National Undersea Research Center to take the first ever video survey of the wreck in an attempt to solve this long forgotten mystery.

    True Story of the Bridge on the River Kwai

    The film The Bridge on the River Kwai dramatized the WWII story of the Thailand-Burma Railway, yet it was largely fictional. Over 65,000 Allied POWs battled torture, starvation, and disease to hack the 255-mile railway out of harsh jungle for the Japanese. Finishing in only 14 months, many never returned from "The Railway of Death".

    Tora, Tora, Tora: The Real Story of Pearl Harbor.

    December 7, 1941, was an historical turning point--the world was forever changed after the fateful Japanese attack against the US fleet at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. It resulted from a combination of interrelated and complicated factors--and at any point, the dangerous operation could have been called off before its commander radioed back the code words "Tora, Tora, Tora" (Tiger, Tiger, Tiger), which meant complete surprise had been achieved. Here is the real story of the "Day of Infamy".

    Pearl Harbor.

    December 7, 1941--"a date which will live in infamy". The unprovoked attack on the US Pacific Fleet moored at Pearl Harbor is one of the key moments in modern history, signaling the US entry into WWII, turning the war into a global conflict, and marking America's emergence as a military superpower. In this hour, we offer an unprecedented viewpoint of the attack. Aerial photographs taken of Pearl Harbor and the Hawaiian Island of Oahu are layered over a 3-D contour map to create a CGI "model". But, this isn't a computer game. Rather, a facsimile of Pearl Harbor as the battle raged. These original high-resolution images allow the viewer to track the attack from the air. Individual stories of courage and heroism are explored in the exact spots where they took place. Using cutting-edge techniques, rare archive film, reenactments, and extraordinary interviews with men who were there, we tell, in a totally new way, the story of WWII's greatest surprise attack.

    Pearl Harbor

    Is the historical portrayal of the attack on Pearl Harbor as seen in movies accurate? Dr. Donald Goldstein, co-author of the best-seller At Dawn We Slept, leads a team of producers on a site survey of Pearl Harbor to revisit the attack and the lucky shot that sunk the USS Arizona on December 7, 1941. Weaving together interviews with survivors who share their stories from that fateful day and computer animation, the Pearl Harbor attack is re-created, as one of the most significant and traumatic events in American history is revealed as it's never been seen before.

    No Surrender: German and Japanese Kamikazes.

    This 2-hour special recounts the desperate measures taken by Axis forces to stave off defeat in WWII and the mythical origins of the Japanese kamikaze and their Nazi counterparts. Many in leadership were opposed to suicide tactics--the driving forces were often young junior officers who had grown up in a culture of militarism and extreme nationalism. As well as assessing the contribution of myth and propaganda, we reveal the more human stories behind those caught up in the kamikaze phenomenon.

    Combat Garage

    Nothing embodied the power of the American army in World War II more than the M4 Sherman, and it was the tank that won the war for the allies. Our gang of gear heads has an M4A3 Sherman in desperate need of an engine overhaul. They will pull out the vintage Ford V-8 engine, rebuild it, and then fire it up. Explore the Sherman's strengths; weaknesses; and remarkable battle history and get a whole new appreciation for those unsung army mechanics who fixed broken tanks in combat amid enemy fire.
