- Program Description
The shock of what happened on December 7, 1941 has made Pearl Harbor a synonym for deceit and unpreparedness. But a truer examination of events shows the attack should have been foreseen. The story of the bombing of Pearl Harbor abounds with the mysterious, the surprising and the surreal. This 90-minute program examines one of the most traumatic events in American history by using interviews, never-before-aired Japanese and American archival footage, as well as home movies, propaganda films, feature films and even cartoons.
