@ 2000 repeats @ 0000 The Color of War
World War Two was truly a global conflict. Allied soldiers fought in all theaters of war, exposing them to an extraordinary diversity of terrain and climate--from the Arctic Circle to desert sands and fetid jungles. An infantryman was engaged in combat for an hour each day on average, but he fought the environment around the clock. The war comes alive through a moving tapestry of letters, diaries, and color film and photographs unearthed from archives and personal collections. Peter Coyote narrates. TV PG

@ 2100 repeats @ 0100 MiG 15: Russian Stealth
The MiG 15 was one of the 20th century's most feared high-performance weapons. When it first appeared in 1950, its high speed, lightning maneuverability, and intense firepower outclassed everything in the sky. During the Korean War, when Soviet MiGs engaged with America's F 86 Sabre jets, they finally met their match and a new era in air warfare had begun. Features exclusive interviews with MiG fighter pilots who flew against U.S. pilots and the nephew of the founder of the MiG Design Bureau. TV G

@ 2300 repeats @ 0300 MacArthur vs. Yamashita
Between October 1944 and August '45, General Douglas MacArthur and his men recaptured the Philippines from the Japanese, led by General Tomoyuki Yamashita, in the largest single U.S. campaign in the Pacific War. As the Americans pushed forward, Yamashita had one weapon the U.S. did not--kamikaze pilots, who sacrificed their lives for maximum destruction of the enemy. The fighting continued until the Japanese sued for peace--MacArthur lost 8,000 men, but Yamashita lost a staggering 192,000! TV G
