Blitz Street: Part 2

9:00pm Monday, April 26 on C4

In the second programme, the authentic street is on the receiving end of one of the largest bombs the Luftwaffe ever dropped on Britain: the SC1000, nicknamed “The Hermann”. A bomb this large was designed to cause massive damage to the infrastructure of industrial Britain. With the aid of harrowing and moving eye-witness testimonies, the programme also recounts the Luftwaffe’s horrendous bombing of Coventry on 14 November 1940 and the campaign to destroy Britain’s manufacture of munitions.
