NOVA: Escape from Nazi Alcatraz

Preview | 30s

"Escape from Nazi Alcatraz" – The POW camp at Germany's Colditz Castle was supposed to be escape-proof, but a group of British prisoners built a two-man glider to launch from the roof. The war ended before they could try it so aerospace engineers re-created the glider to see if they would have succeeded. (Also Fri. 6/19 at 3 a.m.; Sun. 6/21 at 2 p.m.)
