Title List

Programs include:

Pearl Harbor: Legacy of Attack
National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Robert Ballard tackles one of the most enduring mysteries of World War II--the role of a Japanese midget sub in the attack on Pearl Harbor. Was the submarine Pearl Harbor's first casualty? Could it have escaped the U.S. destroyer that fired upon it? And, perhaps most critical, why didn't the sub's presence tip American forces to the approaching attack?

The Battle for Midway
One-thousand miles from anywhere lies a lonely outpost of coral and sea called Midway. It was here in 1942 where the U.S. and Japan fought one of the greatest naval battles of World War II that changed the course of history. And it is here again where Titanic discoverer Dr. Robert Ballard now leads a team of experts and four World War II veterans on the voyage of their lives.

Untold Stories of World War II
What if Hitler had the A-bomb? Why did Japan's submarine sneak attack on Pearl Harbor fail? Could the Kamikazes have turned the tide of the war in the Pacific? Now, these and other compelling stories about the secret weapons, ruthless tactics, and remarkable heroism of World War II can be told.

Search for the Battleship Bismarck
"Sink the Bismarck!" was the cry as British forces searched the Atlantic for the German navy's most powerful vessel. The pursuit ended on May 27, 1941, in a battle that plunged the Bismarck into waters nearly three miles deep, taking with it more than 2,000 lives. Almost half a century later, explorer and scientist Dr. Robert Ballard, who discovered the sunken Titanic, searched the Atlantic for the infamous Bismarck. On June 8, 1989, he located the sunken ship, 600 miles off the coast of France. National Geographic looks back at the first, and last, mission of the Bismarck and talks with survivors of the notorious World War II battle. Then, in its climatic chapter, the story reveals exclusive footage of this remarkable undersea exploration.

The Lost Fleet of Guadalcanal
In 1942, World War II raged around a previously obscure island in the southwest Pacific called Guadalcanal. Six months of savage fighting transformed the channel north of the island into a final resting place for some fifty Allied and Japanese warships. Fifty years later, Dr. Robert Ballard, the explorer who found the wrecks of the Titanic and Bismarck, leads a joint National Geographic Society/U.S. Navy expedition to explore this watery graveyard. Join in his discovery of ships unseen for half a century. Retrace the brutal events at Guadalcanal that changed the course of the war. Share the vivid, searing memories of those who fought and survived, and witness their touching reunions with their ships and former enemies. With a special introduction by former President George H. W. Bush, relive some incredible moments in the histories of war and exploration.

I was expecting input on WWII, instead it covered video on looking for sunken ships.
