When The Heavy Water War first aired, a staggering 24% of Norway’s population tuned in! That’s 1.2 million viewers.
Now Australian viewers have a chance to see what the hype is all about with this brilliant WW2 series airing on SBS One and On Demand weekly on Tuesdays
Based on one of WW2’s most thrilling and little known stories, The Heavy Water War tells the story of the sabotage of an isolated Norwegian facility that was being used to manufacture the “heavy water” that was crucial to Germany’s creation of an atomic bomb.
Told from the perspectives of the scientists working for the Nazi’s, the workers of the plant and the Norwegian and Allied forces conspiring to destroy it, this is truly gripping viewing.
But don’t just take our word for it! Tune in to SBS One at 10:30pm on Tuesdays, or catch up on On Demand.
