    The Bismarck, Season 5 | Episode 1

    The Royal Navy's battle with Bismarck is a pivotal point in the Second World War. If Bismarck had succeeded in attacking the British convoy system, then Britain would probably have been forced to surrender, leaving no bridgehead for an Anglo-American liberation of Europe. In losing Bismarck, the Germans lost their opportunity to defeat Britain and turn the tide of war. Naval historian Andrew Lambert has studied this famous sea battle and sheds light on the reasons for Bismarck's fate. He believes the sinking follows a catalogue of errors on both sides, and ultimately he finds fault with the core German war strategy.

    In 1960 construction of Europe's tallest dam is completed in in the Vajont Valley in Northern Italy - the jewel in the crown of an ambitious hydro-electric generation scheme. But as the new reservoir fills, a vast section of mountainside is dislodged and creeps toward the lake. The power company know the landslide has the potential to cause a devastating tsunami if it hits the water at speed, so they develop a plan to ease the landslide down by adjusting the level of the lake.

Seconds from Disaster reveals the systematic errors that led to tragedy - and sheds new light on the landslide mechanism that has intrigued scientists for 50 years.
