NOVA dives beneath the waters of Pearl Harbor to trace provocative new clues to one of the most tragic events of World War II-the sinking of the USS Arizona. For decades, it has been thought that the Arizona was sunk by a bomb dropped by a Japanese aircraft. But the discovery of a group of Japanese midget subs in and around Pearl Harbor has raised questions about the Arizona's final hours. A number of expeditions have recovered evidence of four of the subs, pinpointing their final positions and torpedo targets. But when NOVA's team of expert investigators takes a ride to the sea floor in a submersible and discovers the wreckage of a fifth sub, they see something intriguing!
