James Holland presents a fresh analysis of the legendary 1943 Dam Busters raid, a low-level night mission that took 19 Lancaster bombers deep into the heart of enemy territory to destroy German dams with a brand new weapon - the bouncing bomb. Of the many extraordinary things about the Dams raid, the biggest is that it almost never happened. When finally green lit, it set off an incredible race against time to form and train a new squadron. Their mission was to deliver a weapon that did not yet exist. Unprecedented by any scale, and even more remarkable because the crews were not the experienced elite that legend sometimes suggests, Holland believes this truly is the greatest raid of all time.

Ambient, Modern Classical

Mary Lattimore’s music functions as a kind of emotional synesthesia. Rather than seeing colours when she hears notes, Lattimore feels things: sadness, hope, longing, memory. She funnels all of that into stirring songs composed on her harp. “I feel like a lot of my music is me channeling feelings or memories,” she says. “I just do whatever I want, and try to paint a picture of a memory.” The memory that provides the basis for At the Dam is particularly striking. Lattimore received a prestigious fellowship from the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage — a rare honor given out to just 12 people every year — and she used the funds to take a road trip across America with a friend, writing and recording songs at each stop along the way.

When Grand Coulee Dam was being built during the depths of the Great Depression, everything about it–generators, powerhouses, pumps–was the biggest in the world. Grand Coulee was more than a dam; it was a proclamation: America could still do great things. The mile-long behemoth was the largest hydroelectric power-producing facility in the world when it was completed in March 1941–just in time to power the nation's defense plants and the atomic reactors for the Manhattan Project. After the war, a vast irrigation project made possible by the dam helped transform the barren deserts of central Washington into rich farmland. But despite its tremendous achievements–including the plentiful production of clean energy–the negative consequences of its construction are equally noteworthy. In a single stroke, Grand Coulee prevented access to one of the greatest salmon rivers in the world, threatening huge populations of fish with extinction, depriving the local Native people of their most important economic and spiritual resource, and instigating a profound cultural decline as waters behind the dam inundated towns, sacred spaces, and burial grounds.
