    Grey Wolves

    The first TV documentary series about the Battle of the Atlantic--the longest and most costly battle of WWII. Over 30,000 merchant seamen lost their lives and 85 percent of the U-boat crews were killed. These are some of their untold stories. In this episode, we look at what Winston Churchill called "the U-boat peril", when Hitler's submarines threatened to do what his air force couldn't--starve Britain into submission. Featuring interviews with British seamen and U-boat men who hunted them down.

    Keeping Secrets

    During WWII, Britain depended on its lifeline to North America, but in the first 18 months of war, German U-boats sank more than 3-million tons of shipping. It was a battle for survival and Britain was losing it. But by the spring of 1941, a new source of naval intelligence promised to transform the war in the Atlantic and shape victory from defeat. Featuring new eyewitness accounts from both sides, dramatic reconstructions, and a wealth of archival material.

    The Hunted

    By the spring of 1943, the tide had turned and the hunter became the hunted. How in a matter of a few short months did the Allies manage to master the German U-boat threat? We draw on eyewitness accounts and use dramatic reconstructions and archive footage to tell the remarkable story of the victories in the spring of 1943 and the final destruction of the U-boat fleet.

    May 13-May 19.

    In Europe, the Nazi threat is all but gone as the "Big 3" nations begin to tackle the problem of restructuring the shattered continent. In the Pacific, the situation in Okinawa has turned into a bloody stalemate between the Americans and Japanese. Meanwhile, significant progress is being made in overcoming the enemy in the Philippines. The US also continues to soften the enemy's defenses on mainland Japan. In the US, shocking evidence of a Japanese/German bombmaking alliance ends up on the shores of New Hampshire--a timely and valuable discovery for the United States government and its atomic bomb project. Join us for another gripping hour of our series that takes a week-by-week look at the end of World War Two.

    FDR and Pearl Harbor.

    The attack on Pearl Harbor shocked the nation. To many, the official explanations of misguided assumptions and missed clues did not account for the enormity of the catastrophe. We examine "alternative" theories that arose soon after the attack. Was a plot hatched in Washington to solve FDR's "problem"--convincing a reluctant country to fight the Nazis? Did FDR send a secret cable just days before the attack ordering Pearl Harbor chiefs to stand down? Did US intelligence intercept a message from Tokyo asking its spies in Hawaii to map the harbor for an imminent air attack? More than six decades later, the controversy boils under the surface of recent US history, igniting heated debates over collusion, intrigue, and thousands of American dead.

    Hitler and Stalin: Roots of Evil.

    An examination of the minds of two of the 20th century's most brutal dictators and mass murderers--Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. Based on recent psychological and medical studies, the program explores the personalities of these ruthless leaders, who were directly responsible for millions of deaths--their paranoia, suspiciousness, cold-bloodedness, sadism, and lack of human feeling. Includes interviews with Martin Bormann's son and Hitler's butler.

    The Bielski Brothers

    Living in the Soviet Republic of Belorussia during World War II, Tuvia, Asael and Zus Bielski saved more than twelve-hundred of their fellow Jews from perishing in the Holocaust, yet their story has largely gone untold. The Bielski's built an elaborate village in the woods, from which they rescued Jews and mounted guerilla attacks against the Nazis. Their forest haven included a gun workshop, a bakery, a synagogue, a communal bath and even a theater company. Containing interviews with Bielski Brigade survivors in the United States, Israel and Great Britain, we proudly pay tribute to three of the greatest unsung heroes of the Holocaust.

    May 6 -12.

    After nearly six years of conflict and the death of millions, Germany surrenders unconditionally. The war in Europe is over at last. In London, Paris, New York, and Moscow, people take to the streets celebrating victory. Denmark, Norway, and the Channel Islands are liberated. However, in the Pacific Theater there is still heavy fighting on Okinawa and in the Philippines. It's a matter of honor for the Japanese who cannot contemplate the shame of defeat and surrender. US General Simon Buckner is determined to keep up the pressure.

    It's 10 o' clock on the evening of June 18, 1815. For the last 11 hours, a quarter of a million men have been fighting one of the most intense, bitter clashes in history--the Battle of Waterloo. As many as 50,000 men and 10,000 horses lie dead on the battlefield. The British Commander, the Duke of Wellington, greets Field Marshall von Blucher, Commander-in-Chief of the Prussian army. Their forces have achieved the unthinkable--the defeat of the legendary Emperor of France, Napoleon Bonaparte. How had Wellington achieved such a remarkable victory? Using the latest scientific techniques and historical analysis, we'll discover what gave Wellington the edge at Waterloo.

    Night of the Long Knives

    One of Adolf Hitler's most brutal and dramatic exterminations came half a decade before the sins of the Holocaust. The SA was Hitler's army of thugs, but the head of the SA, Ernst Roehm, was threatening Hitler's rule. On June 29th 1934, Hitler ordered the SA leadership to appear for a meeting at the Hotel Hanselbauer. Without warning, the SS burst in, beginning 48 hours of bloodshed in which 1000 of the leading SA, including Roehm, were rounded up and slaughtered. This murderous deed became an ominous warning of what was to come. It is the single most significant episode in Hitler's rise to absolute power, and the set the stage for World War and the Holocaust.

    World War I: Jutland.

    May 1916. The British Grand Fleet, unchallenged since the Battle of Trafalgar, is moored in the peaceful harbor of Scapa Flow off the north coast of Scotland. The global dominance of the British Royal Navy is seemingly assured. But this is all about to change. The Battle of Jutland between Britain and Germany was the largest naval action of all time. It was a confrontation that the British wanted. An opportunity to unleash their lethal super weapons of the day--the great ships they called Dreadnoughts--and to prove that Britain did still rule the waves. Yet, in the cold grey waters of northern Europe, the showdown ended in carnage on a scale few could have imagined. Today, the ships with their vast gun turrets and thousands of shells still litter the seabed. Now, using the latest modern science, we try to determine what went wrong. Why was Jutland so disastrous for the British Royal Navy? And could it be, that in losing the battle, they won the naval war?
