Modern Technology Keeps Pearl Harbor Alive-- Part 2: Getting Virtual
Even though the U.S. government took efforts to censor the horrible images back them, today it is very easy to see what happened from a TV or home computer. You can go on You Tube, founded in 2005, and see all you want. A quick search will also get you lots of information.
Time Inc.' Life VR -- as in virtual realty -- has recently released "Remembering Pearl Harbor," which can be seen on Vive, a virtual reality game system. The story on this goes through the eyes of an actual Pearl Harbor veteran, Lt. James Downing, who served as a postmaster on the USS West Virginia.
The Smithsonian Channel has a new series called "The Lost Tapes," and has an episode on Pearl Harbor. It includes radio reports, film footage, audiotape, photos, wire dispatches and first-person accounts.
