    At the beginning of World War Two, radar was in its infancy. Huge towers were erected along Britain's south coast which tracked German planes as they crossed the English Channel. Without radar and the advanced warning of the German arrival it gave, Britain could well have lost the Battle of Britain. But as the war progressed radar developed at a fantastic rate. When the brilliant scientists at MIT got to work on it they found literally hundreds of uses for radar from aiming gunsights to identifying ships at sea. And the radar systems got smaller and smaller until they could be carried in the fuselage of a ship or in the control room of a submarine.

    It is one of the most successful and important planes in history. Taking on the worst that the Luftwaffe had to offer, the Flying Fortresses of the 8th Air Force flew daylight bombing missions over the most heavily defended cities in Europe. Each crewed by 10 men - thousands of them would fly the most perilous missions of the Second World War. But many would never return. Though they suffered unprecedented losses, the young American airmen of the 'Mighty Eighth' turned the tide of the war. With never-before-seen home movie footage of B-17s returning to their British bases and the white-knuckle recollections of pilots and bombardiers, BATTLE STATIONS chronicles the development and operational history of America's first four-engined bomber, flying high over wartime Berlin on the raids that eventually crippled the Nazi regime. -- Extended interview of B-17 Navigator Robert Bily joined to the film.

    In the aftermath Pearl Harbor, the U.S. Navy designed and built an entirely new generation of warships. Incredibly, they did not have to wait for the next conflict to see duty--in fact, they played a vital role throughout most of World War II. It's creed was 'to go in harms's way,' its motto....kill or be killed. On June 4, 1942, as the Imperial Navy suffered its first major defeat at Midway, the first Fletcher class destroyer was commissioned in Boston. By the end of the war, there were well over 100 of these revolutionary warships in the water, performing every imaginable task, from protecting carriers to bombarding enemy troops on land. Through visits to surviving Fletchers, the recollections of crewmen who served aboard them and a vast library of archival film, BATTLE STATIONS tells the story of these extraordinary vessels.

    The horrifying reality of combat on the Eastern Front is evident in this look at the tank that saved the Motherland. It was the most important weapon mobilized by Russia during World War II. Designed and developed in total secrecy, it entered the fray in 1941 and played a critical role in stopping the advance of Operation Barbarossa. "Battle Stations" uses declassified Soviet footage and interviews with veterans of the Eastern Front to tell the story of the T-34, one of the most successful tanks ever made. Find out how an American engineer, J. Walter Christie, played a key role in its development, and relive some of its epic engagements with the help of dramatic re-enactments. In all, 50,000 T-34s were manufactured during the war, and without them, Russia would likely have fallen to the Germans. A must for any military buff, "T-34: Russian Victory" tells the complete story of the "secret" weapon that dominated the Eastern Front.

    The story of HMS Belfast is one of the most dramatic naval stories of World War Two. When commissioned in 1938, the cruiser HMS Belfast was the most modern warship in Britain's Royal Navy. With rapid-firing six-inch calibre guns and high speed capability, she was designed to patrol the seaways of Britain's vast empire, and playing a part in the sinking of the German warship Scharnhorst during the Battle of North Cape in the Second World War.

    Recognising the huge risk in capturing German-held ports in occupied France, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill issued his famous memo 'Piers for use on Beaches' outlining the most audacious plan of the Second World War. The Allies would build and tow two enormous harbours across 100 miles of Nazi infested waters as they launched the invasion of Europe in June 1944. D-Day was the greatest sea borne invasion in human history. By the end of the first day, almost 200,000 men had been landed ashore on the beaches. For the invasion to be a success, they desperately needed regular supplies. Normandy had no large ports - and other ports along the coast were too well defended by the Germans to be stormed and seized. In planning for D-Day however, the Allies had conceived one of the boldest engineering feats ever attempted during wartime - The Mulberry Harbours. The Allies would build their own giant artificial harbours off the Normandy beaches, constructed from huge slabs of steel and concrete floated across the Channel.

    Relive the terror of being hunted by German U-boats and see how these "one-off" supply ships helped win World War II. They were the primary weapons in the Battle of the Atlantic. But they weren't fighting ships. They were freighters, produced "by the mile and chopped off by the yard" in such numbers that they overwhelmed the forces arrayed to stop them. Using period footage, dramatic re-enactments and interviews with the men who manned the vessels that formed the "bridge of liberty," BATTLE STATIONS tells the remarkable tale of the development and deployment of the humble freighter that delivered victory in World War II. The program goes from the yards where they were built to the dangerous waters where brave crews experienced the terror of being targeted by Nazi wolf packs. The Allied struggle to get enough men and material to the front lines of World War II would have been impossible without the contributions of the "Liberty Convoy".

    For nearly half a century one bomber has dominated the skies. During those fifty years it has delivered more conventional bombs than any other aircraft. With a maximum speed of 650 mph, a range of of over 8000 miles, and capable of dropping a massive 70.000 lbs. of bombs, it is the most lethal bomber in the world. It can also deliver free-fall nuclear bombs, cruise missiles and precision weapons. When the United States' President wants to wield his 'big stick' he sends in the B-52s. It has flown for nearly fifty years, and is projected to remain in service until 2045. BATTLE STATIONS goes from the Ohio hotel where the B-52 was first conceived to the skies over Afghanistan and interviews military planners, pilots, crewmembers and aviation experts to chronicle the history of this extraordinary plane. Revisit the decades when a fleet B-52s remained aloft 24 hours a day, armed with nuclear warheads and just two hours away from the Soviet Union, as a key component of America's Cold War deterrence strategy. Fly in missions from Vietnam, when the Stratofortress was first exposed to fire from surface-to-air missiles, to the Gulf War and beyond, and tour the cockpit with the men who have piloted the B-52 through the years.This is a fascinating look at the aircraft that is arguably the most important and successful warplane ever made.

    Twenty-five years after it entered active service, the US Army's Black Hawk remains the world's most advanced twin turbine helicopter. It has flown in missions around the world, in every situation imaginable, performing roles from tank-busting to medical evacuation. And thanks to sophisticated technology that allows it to operate with near-daylight efficiency in the dark, the Black Hawk provides the army with exceptional night-flying operational capability. BLACK HAWK: NIGHT STALKER follows the versatile chopper into battles from Grenada to Mogadishu, analyzing its famous failures and showing why it is nevertheless regarded as one of the most successful military aircraft ever built. Extensive footage, much of it never seen before, shows the Black Hawk in action, and interviews with servicemen, including Mike Durant, who was captured by Somali warlord Aidid's men, offer an inside view of what it is like to fly the Black Hawk in hostile situations.
