Check your local PBS station for the times. NOVA usually every Tuesday at 8PM
Title of this NOVA episode: Supersonic Dream
NOVA looks back over the 30-year story of the development of the world's first operational supersonic airliner. Revisiting the thrill of its maiden flight of 1969 and the tragic Paris crash of 2000, the program is a unique and colorful aviation saga, drawing on rare behind-the-scenes footage and including interviews with Concorde fans, including Henry Kissinger and David Frost.

These shows tend to be so horrifically boring... just how many times can the story of "British & French make plane, fuel prices up, no other airlines firm order it, finally makes it into New York, blah blah blah" be told???
I'd say the absolute only decently original Concorde programs out there are "Anatomy of a Disaster" as well as the Nat'l Geographic special whose title eludes me at the moment..

On the contrary of what others might say, the Nova show tonight was extremely good. Yes, it showed history but, it wasn't boring at all. I found the show a bit saddening that the Concorde is not with us any more.
