Friday Fave: History Detectives

My Friday Fave this week is History Detectives Special Investigations on PBS.  History Detectives has not aired in my area in at least a couple of summers, so it is wonderful to see it back again.  You can find air times in your area at the official website:  History Detectives.

History Detectives is an hour long show.  Each show focuses on a mysterious event in American history.  The detectives - Wes Cowan, Tukufu Zuberi, and Kalema Glover - delve into the events to learn unknown facts that will help to solve the mystery.

The case this week involved the disappearance of Big Band musician and band leader Glenn Miller, who disappeared on a flight across the English Channel during World War II.  It was absolutely fascinating.

Previous seasons of the show dealt with historical artifacts and objects.  This season is focusing more on bigger historical mysteries.

If you are not watching this series, I very highly recommend it!
