The Germans knew an attack was coming, the only questions were where and when? D-Day On Juno Beach examines the Canadian role in the Allied attack on the most heavily defended place on earth. With obstacles designed to tear the bottoms out of landing crafts, millions of landmines and hundreds of concrete bunkers equipped with machine guns and artillery, the beach was a 400-mile long killing zone. By nightfall, some Canadian units had advanced 10 kilometres into France, deeper than any other division.

Turning Points of History
Moments, hours, a day, a week when the world is irrevocably transformed, when action is the only response. This series rushes into the midst of these turning points: each episode focuses on a dramatic real life event in which the decisive actions of remarkable men and women redirect the course of history. Using the historical account of the event as its spine, the programs swerve back and forth in time, exploring the dramatic forces leading up to the cataclysmic main event and how their effects rippled into the days beyond.
