What Really Happened in Pearl Harbor?


Tonight at 9 on WETA TV26 and WETA HD, NOVA dives to the sea floor of Pearl Harbor to trace new clues to the sinking of the USS Arizona which was one of the most tragic events of World War II. 

Until now, the story was: a bomb dropped by a Japanese aircraft sank the USS Arizona, but the group of Japanese midget subs found in and around Pearl Harbor may have challenged this theory. Join NOVA for Killer Subs in Pearl Harbor as investigators begin the exploration of the mysterious wreckage of these Japanese subs.

Listen to this NOVA exclusive discussion by marine forensic historian Parks Stephenson as he unveils how the wreckage of a midget submarine might change our understanding of the Japanese attack on the U.S. fleet in Pearl Harbor.
