When Weather Changed History Review

I was able to watch "WWCH" tonight on The Weather Channel (TWC).

They did an excellent job with the space shuttle disaster from the 80's. I enjoyed seeing the old footage AND the interviews with NASA officials. With the passing of time, I had forgotten how shocked we all were when the Challenger exploded. Seeing the reaction of the spectators and families of the astronauts gave me a lump in my throat.

I would give the entire program four out of five possible stars. Looking forward to the future shows. My understanding is they will repeat the show this week.

The next program will be:
Battle of the Bulge –Airing, Next Sunday 1/13/2008 at 8 p.m. CST
Background on the show:
Dec. 1944 – Jan. 1945: In the largest, bloodiest land battle ever fought by American soldiers, more than 1.1 million American, British and German men take part and nearly 20,000 are killed. In mid-December, the American army is low on supplies when the well-equipped German army releases a surprise, brutal attack on the Americans. As desperate Nazi troops use the cover of severe winter weather to counterattack Allied forces, weather conditions also hinder American attacks. Then a fortuitous break in the weather finally enables them to defeat the Germans and destroy the Third Reich, impacting the outcome of World War II.
