PBS Distribution will release a trio of new NOVA episodes on DVD next month.
Up first on the company’s schedule is NOVA: Thai Cave Rescue. The hour-long program follows the dramatic rescue of 12 boys and their soccer coach from a cave in Thailand that happened last summer.
The story made international headlines last July as the group sat trapped in the cave for 18 days. An international group of rescuers partnered to bring the boys and their coach from the depths and back to safety.
NOVA: Thai Cave Rescue will retail for MSRP of $24.99, but can be pre-ordered now at a reduced price of $19.99 via PBS’ online store.
Next up on PBS Distribution’s February NOVA release schedule is NOVA: Last B-24. Also scheduled for release on Feb. 5, this episode follows the investigation of the WWII B-24 bomber Tulsamerican after its discovery beneath the waters of the Adriatic Sea.
The bomber crashed in the sea 74 years ago. Seven of its 10 crewmen survived, and three died. Seven decades-plus later, an expedition group composed of members of the U.S. Department of Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, Croatian Navy and forensics experts examined the site and the remains of the fallen airmen in hopes of identifying them and answering why the plane crashed.
NOVA: Last B-24‘s run time is 45 minutes. It will retail for MSRP of $24.99, but can be pre-ordered at a reduced price of $19.99 via PBS’ online store.
Rounding out PBS Distribution’s February release schedule is NOVA: Operation Bridge Rescue. This episode will appeal to students and lovers of engineering and engineering history, as it follows the reconstruction efforts of the famed Blenheim Covered Bridge in New York State after its destruction by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and a group of thousand-year-old bridges in China. The engineers face ongoing battles because of typhoons that destroy the bridges.
NOVA: Operation Bridge Rescue runs 60 minutes, and will retail for MSRP of $24.99, but can be pre-ordered now at a reduced price of $19.99 via PBS’ online store.
