History to air 'World War II from Space'


In what almost seems like a Saturday Night Live skit come to life, the History Channel has announced that it will be airing 'World War II from Space," a two-hour special that looks into America's part in the war - from space, of course.

The film, being made by U.K. company October Films, will use VFX techniques and look at major events from the war - from the vantage point of outer space. Pearl Harbor, D-Day and the bombing of Hiroshima will be included, to name a few.

Experts working to the film include Pulitzer-prize winner David Kennedy; Lt. Gen. Raymond V. Mason, the deputy chief of staff - logistics; Richard Overy, author of How the Allies Won the War; Patrick Porter and James Canafano.

The show will look at the war from a modern reporting perspective, using visual devices and imagery interpretation to give the film a modern feel, giving viewers a new interpretation of the great war.

The film, written, designed and directed by Simon George, premieres December 7 on History.

October Films creative director Adam Bullmore said that "the way director Simon George has brought all this talent and ideas together to produce a stunning programme, is a remarkable achievement in visual storytelling."

Just saw WORLD WAR 2 FROM SPACE on basic cable by sheer luck today! 12/30/2012 Sunday! Wanted to see it so badly earlier when I first heard it would air a while back but forgotten about it with work and all! So glad I was off work today to see it! Can't wait to buy the dvd! It is an amazing film! I was spellbound! Just wish we had this to watch in the pre-computer 1970's decade as a kid! Find out what make America so great even with all her problems today! It will make you glad you in the Land Of The Free And The Home Of The Brave! God Bless Our Country!

It was one of the most impressive history shows I have ever seen. Very detailed and full of facts that never knew before. When will be aired again?

I agree. It sounds different, at least.
