Summary
NOVA Bombing Hitler's Dams - Get inside the mind of the genius behind one of the most unconventional weapons of WWII. In 1943 a squadron of Lancaster bombers staged one of the most audacious raids in history-destroying two gigantic dams in Germany's industrial heartland and cutting the water supply to arms factories-with a revolutionary bouncing bomb invented by British engineer Barnes Wallis. Wallis and the pilots of 617 Squadron-a lively mix of Britons, Australians, Americans, and Canadians-were hailed as heroes and dealt a mighty blow to the German war machine. Now, NOVA re-creates the extreme engineering challenges faced by Wallis and the pilots with the aid of spectacular experiments. Each represents a technical challenge that the Dambusters had to solve to make their mission a success. A crack team of experts-from dam engineers to explosives specialists-will step into the shoes of the Dambusters and attempt to overcome each obstacle in turn. They will adapt a vintage DC4 to carry a bomb the size of an oil drum; train to drop it from a dangerously low altitude in pitch darkness; get it to bounce over obstacles and onto the target; and finally, at a test site in Canada with a 1:6 scale model of one of the German dams, try to repeat history
