A few episodes on this documentary style series were really interesting and offered glimpses into some key events in several past centuries. In some cases, for 20th century shipping accidents or acts of war in particular, the investigations offered corrections to previous conclusions which ultimately may have provided some closure to surviving family members.
Relating to the 20th Century, I found the show on "The Mystery Submarine: Flight 111" to be particularly interesting if somewhat heartbreaking. It is absolutely fascinating what we can piece together, and how its done. I also learned much more than just what sits in the Great Lakes with respect to the Canadian Avro Air debacle...politics and "national security": all at the bottom of the Great Lakes. Whooda thought the answers would come from an under water dive as well as declassified documents? The search of Juno Beach was also fascinating, given family members who went through the real thing. More remote history considered, its amazing to "see" the the objects of the lessons you learned about from books...or whats left of them have tangible form. It makes the lessons that much more alive and interesting. I guess THIS is the kind of programming I call Reality TV...moreless
