Acknowledged to be the most comprehensive television history of the Second World War ever made. Featuring rare documentary footage and candid interviews, the program charts the Second World War from beginning to end with narration by Sir Laurence Olivier and Eric Porter.

The Bomb: February - September 1945
Western scientists have developed a new, immensely powerful weapon - the Atomic Bomb. Should it be used? The moral implications are enormous...
For many, the Second World War remains the most significant experience of their lives. But millions, many more millions than we realise, died...
Who Won World War II?
The world in 1945 was a simple place. Germany and Japan utterly defeated. The United States, Britain and the Soviet Union, united in victory, were the masters of the world. Years afterwards things are different, Germany is strong, Japan dominates in peace the countries it could not conquer in war. While America and Russia are deadly rivals and Britain is unsettled. Distinguished American Historian Stephen Ambrose gives his startling views regarding the consequences of war.
Reckoning - April 1945
The war ends slowly, messily. Britain is victorious but exhausted. The super powers now confront each other - it is they who will decide the fate of Europe...
Special Presentation: Secretary to Hitler
Traudl Junge found herself in Berlin during the war because she wanted to be a ballet dancer. A friend told her about a job vacancy in Hitler's chancellery; she applied for it. Looking like Hitler's mistress Eva Braun, she became not a dancer but one of Hitler's private secretaries. She saw him at close quarters, shared his public life, was with him in the Bunker at the end.
Some men are terrified of combat; some revel in it: but no man who has experienced it is ever quite the same again.
