PBS' History Detectives Try to Find What Happened to Glenn Miller-- Part 1

July 8, 2014, PBS, WTTW Chicago.

These last two weeks I have really enjoyed watching this series.  Last week, they looked into the horrific explosion of the SS Sultana in the Mississippi River in the waning days of the Civil War, the worst maritime disaster in U.S. history with over 2,000 dead.  I'll be writing about that in my Saw the Elephant Blog.

Last night's episode was on what happened to world renowned bandleader Glenn Miller December 15, 1944, when he took off from England on his way to a concert in Paris and his plane was never heard from again.

They investigated three theories as to what happened:  downed by friendly British fire; killed in a secret mission and plane crash.

More to Come.  --GreGen
