  1. PBS had series called "Danger: UXB" a few years back. Starred Anthony Andrews as an ordinance officer who specialized in defusing unexploded bombs in WWII England. The German parachute mines were huge demolition weapons that were supposedly impossible to disarm. One chapter dealt with these things that were capable of leveling a city block. Excellent dramatic series that will keep you on edge. Kind of like chewing on tin foil.......
