NOVA returns to Ground Zero to witness the final chapter in an epic story of engineering, innovation, and the perseverance of the human spirit: the completion of One World Trade Center, the skyscraper rising up 104 stories and 1,776 feet from the site where the Twin Towers once stood. But just as construction hits full speed and the tower rises to its near-final height, a new threat emerges: this time, from nature. As the historic superstorm Sandy bore down on New York, many feared that the still-incomplete structures and the unorthodox architecture of the Memorial would be especially vulnerable to the storm's wrath. NOVA reveals the engineering story behind their remarkable resilience to nature's worst blows.

Genre: Documentary | History | War

Telling emotional stories that haven’t been heard before, Vietnam War veterans recount their experiences in this one-hour television documentary. Vietnam War Stories presents a portrait of the war told entirely from the perspective of veterans, who reflect on their memories of the conflict from five decades ago. For many service members, these experiences still feel like they happened yesterday. Members of the U.S. Army's 23rd Division share a moment of camaraderie in the field in 1969. More than 100 veterans from all branches of the U.S. armed services were interviewed by producer Mik Derks for the program. They share moving stories of triumph and loss in the field of duty, of sacrificing nearly everything on the battlefield, and of the strong bond of brotherhood and companionship in the ranks. Archival video, historical photography and maps evoke the stark imagery of the war alongside the veterans’ stories. This is not the story of the Vietnam War, but of the men and women who went to Southeast Asia to serve their country. In the voices of a few resonate the stories — each unique, each profound — of the three million who served, the ones who didn’t return and those who passed away before their stories could be told.
