    Pearl Harbor, Season 4 | Episode 2

    On a quiet Sunday morning in 1941 the pride of the US Navy rode calmly at anchor in the island paradise of Hawaii, far away from the war raging in Europe. That calm was abruptly shattered by the arrival of Imperial Japan's carrier taskforce that, in an unprecedented surprise attack, killed thousands and destroyed the American battleships that stood between Japan and its desire for a Pacific empire. This "day of infamy" seemed to be the most successful pre-emptive strike in history and a disaster for the United States. But was it? Seconds from Disaster takes a fresh look at one of history's greatest events and investigates whether the attack was in fact a fatal blow to Japan's quest for victory.

    9/11: The Plane That Hit The Pentagon

    ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, one hundred and eighty-four innocent people lost their lives at the Pentagon. It is a fact that is fading from our collective memory. Today, its not uncommon to find people who dont know that the Pentagon was even a target - let alone the huge number of casualties. Though they helped define a generation, the individual acts of bravery and heroism that took place at the Pentagon are still relatively unknown. Even less widely known is that within an hour of the first attack, officials on the ground at the Pentagon received word that another hijacked flight was headed their way. For some evacuation was not an option. On the 15th Anniversary of the attack, survivors and first responders many for the first time share their raw and vivid recollections of the day that forever changed the world.
