    Bombing of Germany: American Experience [#2203H] On September 1, 1939 -- the first day of World War II in Europe -- President Franklin D. Roosevelt appealed to the warring nations to "under no circumstances undertake the bombardment from the air of civilian populations." Just six years later, British and American Allied forces had carried out a bombing campaign of unprecedented might over Germany's cities, claiming the lives of nearly half a million civilians. From International Emmy Award and Peabody Award-winning producer Zvi Dor-Ner (Israel's Next War, House of Saud) comes "The Bombing of Germany" a film that examines the defining moments of the offensive that led the U.S. across a moral divide. Weaving together interviews with WWII pilots and historians, and archival footage of the bombing and its aftermath, the film is a reminder of the dilemma imposed by war's civilian casualties, a topic that continues to resonate as America enters the eighth year of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. duration 54:32   STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)
  • 2:00 am
    Victory in the Pacific: American Experience [#1710Z] "Take no prisoners. Fight to the bitter end." Those were everyday words to combat troops on both sides at the end of World War II in the Pacific. And they led to an unprecedented orgy of slaughter. In this provocative, thorough examination of the final months of the war, this film looks at the escalation of bloodletting from the vantage point of both the Japanese and the Americans. As the film will show, most of the Emperor's inner circle was determined to continue the war even after losses in the Philippines in February 1945 cut off Japan's supply lines. And though he was warned that the country, brought to its knees by the conflict, might erupt in a Communist revolution, Emperor Hirohito believed that one last decisive battle could reverse Japan's fortunes. The Americans, for their part, were startled by the intensity and determination of the Japanese defenders in the South Pacific. From the U.S. capture of the Mariana Islands, through the firebombing of Tokyo and the dropping of the atomic bomb, this program chronicles the dreadful and unprecedented loss of life and the decisions made by leaders on both sides that finally ended the war. duration 1:54:17   STEREO TVPG-V (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Space Shuttle Columbia: Mission of Hope Dawn is breaking on the morning of February 1, 2003, above West Texas. Suddenly the peace of the early morning is shattered by two loud bangs. The Space Shuttle Columbia is announcing its return home, causing sonic booms as it streaks across the sky at three times the speed of sound. The shuttle is speeding toward a Florida homecoming. But in an instant, onlookers below and controllers in Houston are stunned at what they see. Something has gone horribly wrong. The shuttle has broken up, vanished! Gone is its precious cargo of seven astronauts from around the world. Among them, Col. Ilan Ramon, Israel's first Astronaut. Also gone, an artifact that embodied the glory of the Shuttle's mission and the despair of its demise: a tiny Torah scroll --- smuggled into a concentration camp during the Holocaust; safeguarded by Joachim Joseph, a Holocaust survivor and carried into space by Col. Ilan Ramon, the first Israeli astronaut. It is a unique story that interweaves the heights of scientific achievement, the depths of a nation's cruelty, the private grief of a boy who came of age during the Holocaust and the public mourning of many nations in the aftermath of the Columbia Shuttle disaster. duration 55:31   STEREO TVPG
