NOVA Broadcast Information
In newly declassified footage, NOVA
reveals the exploits of America’s secret weapon in the air war over Afghanistan:
unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or drones. Today’s pilotless planes, like
the Predator and Global Hawk, are just a taste of what the future holds—from
tiny flyers that can fit in your pocket to super-efficient jets that soar
halfway around the world. These smart robots fly, spy, and shoot in places
too risky for human pilots to venture. “Spies that Fly” airs Tuesday, January
7, at 8 PM ET on PBS (check local listings).
