hi, just watched a US War Department made film "The Last Bomb", on sky's PBS America channel, not about the Atomic bomb although it does mention it at the end. It's about the preparation, and execution of a raid on Tokio, with B.29's from Guam, Tinian and Saipan, escourted by P51's, I thought it was good... it will be probably be on a few more times if any want to catch it... regards, jack...

Shall keep a watch out for that one. PBS do put a lot of very good programmes out. I've been watching "The War" again. Excellent series.
