Synopsis by Jeff Gemmill
This installment of NOVA examines the WWII Allied initiative to locate Nazi rocket bases. The program brought together experts from British universities and Hollywood to study 3-D stereoscopic photos of German territory that had been shot by specially converted Spitfires. The result: Allied bombing raids that set back the German rocket program and helped ensure the success of the D-Day landings. The episode includes 3-D graphics that recreate what the photo spies saw.
