The Manhattan Project


In a race against the Nazis to develop an atomic weapon, the United States assigned leading scientists to the Manhattan Project, an incredible scientific, engineering and manufacturing feat with everlasting global consequences. This program examines the project through government files, archival footage and accounts of surviving team members, including Gen. Paul Tibbets, pilot of the Enola Gay, and directors of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Episode of History Channel’s Modern Marvels series visible here. As most History Channel documentaries, the images are amazing but the commentary and music can be annoying.
