THE PLOT THUS FAR
WHAT WE THOUGHT
“D-Day’s Sunken Secrets” is a look inside the remants of the sunken armada from the D-Day landing. PBS’s NOVA program goes through a complete survey of what was found off France’s Western coast and uncovers treasures of a bygone era. Plus, we get to look at the history of the Allied attack and how such an insanely planned assault was launched without a single Nazi being tipped off. Truly this was one of the biggest battles of the Western World.
I’ve been watching so many documentaries about the D-Day legacy. That being said, I find the balance that NOVA takes to the material to be refreshing. Sure, the material isn’t lengthy but it attacks the brain in a way that gets you to click on internet quizzes or read Did You Know quizlets. Sometimes, people just need enough of a factoid to capture their attention and get them to start ramming through the material. If it wasn’t for that, then what else would you do? Actually, crack open a book and learn something about history. That’s not what Americans with access to historical dramatizations do!
The DVD comes with no special features. The A/V Quality is pretty strong for a documentary. The Dolby track is supportive with its surround design. However, the transfer feels a little flat, but typical. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase to the curious.
