The Ghost Ships of Truk Lagoon - Operation Hailstone
Ghost Ships of Truk Lagoon tells the dramatic and powerful saga
of the Japanese navy of World War II. The programme tells of the
fleet's destruction during Operation Hailstone in 1944 and takes
you on underwater dives to visit the almost perfectly preserved
wrecks of ships and war material.
534 - Echoes from the Ocean Floor
of Germany's much-feared U-Boat wolf packs, the U-534 was sunk on
the final day of World War II. Special permission was needed for
film footage to be shot inside the submarine and it is the first
time for 50 years that anyone has boarded the vessel. This is a
memorable snapshot of life on board a U-Boat and brings an eerie
background to one of WWII's most compelling stories.
