Hindenburg: The New Evidence

Inspired by newly found amateur film footage, Hindenburg: The New Evidence follows a team of aviation experts, historians and scientists as they launch a new investigation into the Hindenburg disaster. 

They travel to the site of the crash, Lakehurst, New Jersey, to review the historical records from 6 May 1937- weather conditions, event timelines and eyewitness accounts- and evaluate the authenticity of the newly restored film.  The investigators also go to Friedrichshafen, Germany to the Zeppelin museum to meet with historians who explain how the Hindenburg was constructed and finally we observe experiments in the labs of Caltech as conditions and circumstances are examined to determine the cause of the Hindenburg tragedy.
