The story behind Hitler's plan of Germany getting the atomic bomb during WW2, and the heavy water sabotages in Rjukan, Norway, seen from four angles, the German side, the allied, the saboteurs and the company side.
Marc Benjamin Puch
From England to Egypt, accompanied by his elegant and trustworthy sidekicks, the intelligent yet eccentrically-refined Belgian detective Hercule Poirot pits his wits against a collection of first class deceptions.
Fledgling writer Briony Tallis, as a 13-year-old, irrevocably changes the course of several lives when she accuses her older sister's lover of a crime he did not commit. Based on the British romance novel by Ian McEwan.
Simplistic handling of subject casts doubt on series objectivity
The episode (#12) concerning Finland contains gross errors, misrepresents some subjects, grasps at straws at bewildering pace and, on the whole, seems tendentious, aimed at providing a biased view of the subject. It misses some very obvious points against the given view and interpretations of events, while providing a curious, single-threaded narrative that switches sides instead of providing objectivity using alternative explanations. This casts the whole series in a very suspicious light.
While the whole subject is definitely worth an objective look, I'm not sure this documentary series is up to the task.
