The Weather Channel is set to kickoff (like my football term!) a new series called "When Weather Changed History". It will debut on Sunday, January 6th with an episode on the space shuttle Challenger. The series will air every Sunday night from 8-10 pm (CST). The entire series was filmed in High Definition, so those of you (like me) who subscribe to HD and have an HD television will get to see it in stunning clarity.
Other episodes will include The Battle of the Bulge, The Great Mississippi River flood of 1927, Evacuation at Dunkirk during WW2, Wind Shear stories involving the Air Florida crash in the Potomoc River in D.C. and the Delta 191 crash in Dallas., Operation Eagle Claw which is the failed rescue attempt of the Americans held hostage in Iran in 1979.
I understand The Weather Channel is doing future episodes about the Super Outbreak of Tornadoes in 1974 (I once lived in Xenia, Ohio..not during that time and currently have lived in Cookeville, TN for over 30 years..both cities were struck and many were killed during that day in April) along with an episode about the Dust Bowl during the Great Depression.
I'll be setting my HD-DVR to record all the episodes of this very interesting television program by the folks at The Weather Channel.
