Episode Info

Next: 42x01 -- Vaccines — Calling the Shots (Sep/10/2014)


Diseases that were largely eradicated in the United States a generation ago—whooping cough, measles, mumps—are returning, in part because nervous parents are skipping their children’s shots. The new NOVA special Vaccines – Calling the Shots takes viewers around the world to track epidemics, explore the science behind vaccinations, and shed light on the risks of opting out. Featuring scientists, pediatricians, psychologists, anthropologists, and parents wrestling with vaccine-related questions.


Prev: 41x22 -- D-Day's Sunken Secrets (May/28/2014)


NOVA has exclusive access to a unique collaboration among military historians, archaeologists and specialist divers to carry out the most extensive survey of the seabed bordering the Normandy beachheads of June 6, 1944. Dive teams, submersibles and underwater robots will identify key examples of the Allied craft that fell victim to German shellfire, mines and torpedoes. The team will use the latest 3D mapping tools to plot the relics on the sea floor. Highlighting the ingenious technology that helped the Allies overcome the German defenses, "D-Day's Sunken Secrets" unfolds a vivid account of the tumultuous events of D-Day.
