Channel 4 investigate a Hindenburg disaster ‘cover up’

Best on the Box choice for March 30th…

The story has been dramatised as a series ‘Hindenburg: The Last Flight’ (2011), featured as a big screen movie ‘The Hindenburg’ (1975) and even featured as part of a storyline in ‘The Waltons’ (1977) and numerous books.
