V2 Rocket

Blitz Street endures the most powerful bomb of World War II: the massive V2 rocket.


Travelling at over 3,500 miles an hour and with a range of over 200 miles, the V2 was designed to deliver a knockout blow to Britain.


Unlike the other bombs that have been detonated on Blitz Street, the V2 bomb is buried three metres below ground. Due to its supersonic speed, by the time the V2 detonated it was well beneath the surface.


The programme also sums up why the Nazi blitz bombing campaign failed, the lessons to be learnt from the experiment, and, ultimately, how the people who lived on streets like Blitz Street faced the nightmare of total war but came out stronger. © Channel 4 BBC UK
