Series recalling history's defining moments. This edition focuses on the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7th 1941. The raid crippled the US Pacific fleet, putting five battleships out of action and killing over 2,000 people. The long-term effect, however, was to bring the US into the war, setting in motion a chain of events which would culminate in mushroom clouds over Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
I've seen some of these, and they are very good. Action is shot with a mixture of actual footage , actors and CGI , then the whole thing given the "shot using wartime colour stock" treatment.
