"NOVA" examines the Boston Manhunt, Oklahoma Tornadoes


Wednesday, May 29th, will be a big night for NOVA as the show tackles two timely topics: the Boston bombers manhunt and the Oklahoma tornadoes.


Manhunt – Boston Bombers, which airs at 9pm on ThinkTV16 and CET, looks at how, in the wake of the Boston bombings, investigators transformed the chaos of the bombing into a coherent trail of clues pointing to the accused killers. NOVA follows the manhunt step by step, examining the role of modern technology combined with old-fashioned detective work, in cracking the case.


Then, following the horrible destruction of the May 20th tornadoes in Oklahoma, NOVA is putting together a new special to air at 10pm on CET and ThinkTV16 called Oklahoma’s Killer Tornadoes.



Oklahoma’s Killer Tornadoes will combine new information and footage from Oklahoma with segments from the previously broadcast NOVA episode Deadliest Tornadoes. Oklahoma’s Killer Tornadoes also will highlight the new radar system put in place to track tornadoes.


It’s going to be a big night of newsy NOVAs!
