Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

This BBC documentary is part one of a three-volume series that highlights the role that physics and new technologies played in World War II. The conflict, which Winston Churchill nicknamed "The Wizard War," was in large part decided by scientific advancements that had never been used before. Volume one contains two episodes: The Battle of the Beams, which examines the role of radio transmissions; and To See for a Hundred Miles, which relates the story of the use of radar.
