@ 0900 repeats @ 1500 Sworn to Secrecy
The British Secret Intelligence Service

They were the English spies before James Bond, who operated in the shadows with innocuous names like the Special Operations Executive, MI 5, and MI 6, but their missions were deadly serious. The amazing facts that emerge are stranger than fiction in this history of Britain's intelligence services of WWII. Charlton Heston narrates. TV G

@ 1000 repeats @ 1600 Great Blunders in History
The German Blunder at Dunkirk

When Hitler could have crushed the 400,000 remnants of the British Expeditionary Force, he committed one of his greatest military blunders by withholding his Panzers. We'll see why. TV G

@ 2100 repeats @ 0100 Deadmen's Secrets
The Mysterious Death of General Sikorski

General Wladyslaw Sikorski died when his Liberator aircraft took off from Gibraltar en route to London on July 4, 1943, and plunged nose first into the sea. What was the real cause of the Prime Minister of the Polish Government-in-Exile's death? We recreate Sikorski's fatal flight, using computer graphics, archive footage, and interviews, including one with the surviving pilot of his Liberator. Was the plane sabotaged? Who wanted Sikorski dead? Stalin? Churchill? Or the Poles themselves? TV G

@ 2200 repeats @ 0200 The F-14
October 7, 2001: Missiles from lethal U.S. jets rain down onto Afghanistan. One powerful and deadly plane led the majority of the assaults--the F-14 Tomcat, the world's most complete military fighter. No other fighter jet carries the F-14's unique combination of weapons. Its state-of-the-art system can spot an oncoming enemy plane at almost 200 miles. Its radar can detect targets as low as 50 feet and as high as 80,000 feet and does so three times faster than the radar of any other fighter jet. TV G
