This documentary, originally from NOVA/PBS in the USA, sheds new light on the sinking of the USS Arizona during World War II.
For decades it has been thought that a bomb dropped by a Japanese aircraft sank the Arizona. However, the discovery of a group of small Japanese submarines in and around Pearl Harbour has raised questions about the battleship’s final hours.
This film follows a team of expert investigators, who journey to the seafloor to explore the wreckage of a newly discovered sub, and questions whether this mini-sub, and its two-person crew, made it into Pearl Harbour to fire torpedoes at the Arizona.
With unprecedented access to the remains of the Arizona and other unique evidence, including aerial photos taken by Japanese aircraft and testimonials from US and Japanese veterans, Killer Subs in Pearl Harbour investigates the possibility that these tiny but lethal mini-subs may have played a crucial and previously unsuspected part in the tragic events of that ‘Day of Infamy’.
