This video is a moving and inspiring factual drama about the pioneering work on radar by a little known team of scientists who changed the face of surveillance. On Feb. 26, 1935, Robert Watson-Watt demonstrated for the first time that aircraft could be detected by bouncing radio waves off them. By the time the war began in 1939, radar stations were dotted along the British coast, tracking aircraft at distances of 100 miles away- a remarkable discovery for that time. Register for this video by calling 301-475-4200, ext. *1658, or stop by the reception desk to sign up. (Seating is limited to 16.)
