Series Description

Premiered March 1974 NOVA is a general-interest documentary series that addresses a single science issue each week. Billed as "science adventures for curious grown-ups" when it first aired in March, 1974, NOVA continues to offer an informative and entertaining approach to a challenging subject. 1996 marked NOVA's 23rd season, which makes it the longest-running science program on national television. It is also one of television's most acclaimed series, having won every major television award, most of them many times over. Series release date: 3/3/1974

Program Description

NOVA reveals startling new evidence that Soviet spies penetrated America's deepest secrets, including the Manhattan Project, in the 1940s. By cracking the code of Soviet diplomatic cables, the FBI was able to hunt down "atom spies" such as Klaus Kuchs and Julius Rosenberg. But the true "master spy," a physicist named Ted Hall, got away, and his story is presented for the first time by NOVA. Written, produced and directed by Tug Yourgrau.
