The Mediterranean Sea is said to be "drained" in this story and its land converted to farmland. Besides being a salty sea and thus unusable for farming for decades or even centuries, the deepest part of the sea is over 17,000 feet making impossible for this to be done, even using 21st century technology.

Yeah. You had to see it to believe it, Frank. Overnight, lynch mobs were murdering Jews because suddenly we were less than human.

This may well be the most suspenseful, riveting, horrifying hour of television I've ever watched. Quietly terrifying with moments that are genuinely difficult to watch. I can't believe how good it is. I can honestly say I was taken by surprise.
Part if the horror is that it's simply inconceivable to us that we could have lost world war 2, but it goes well beyond that. The acting is superb. Everything about this pilot is entirely realistic to the point that the inconceivable becomes all too conceivable. The sense of the characters being one step away from utter disaster is constant and overwhelming.
It's not an easy watch. There's no alleviation from the tension that builds throughout, but you shouldn't let that put you off. It's brilliant. Not only that, it illustrates, more than anything I've seen, just what our grandparents were fighting to prevent. I've never actually bothered to write a review here before, but this is so good, it simply must be seen.
