U-864: HITLER’S LAST DEADLY SE­CRET

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WATCH ON PRESTO -

8.30PM, HISTORY

It was Fe­bru­ary 1945 when a state-of-the-art Ger­man sub car­ry­ing mis­sile guidance sys­tems and jet en­gine parts was sunk by a Royal Navy sub in the North At­lantic. And there it lay for some 60 years, un­til a re­cent chance dis­cov­ery by lo­cal fish­er­man. This doco fol­lows a sal­vage mis­sion that’s not just about history, but is an eco­log­i­cal im­per­a­tive. The ves­sel is full of 60 tons of toxic mer­cury.
