Escape from Nazi Alcatraz - tonight at 8:00 on KMOS-TV

Colditz Castle, a notorious prisoner of war camp in Nazi Germany, was supposed to be escape-proof. But in the dark days at the end of World War II, a group of British officers dreamt up the ultimate escape plan: in a secret attic workshop, they constructed a two-man glider out of bed sheets and floorboards. Now a crack team of aero engineers and carpenters rebuild the glider in the same attic using the same materials, and they'll do something the prisoners never got a chance to try: use a bathtub full of concrete to catapult the glider off the roof of the castle.

NOVA's "Escape from Nazi Alcatraz" airs tonight at 8:00 on KMOS-TV's channel 6.1

If you appreciate America's most acclaimed science documentary program I hope you'll support the system that develops it...public television. Call the Office of Broadcasting Services at (660) 543-4155 or stop by the UCM Foundation to set up a payroll deduct contribution.

Thank you.
