PBS Show "The Last B-24"

The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) did a show about the DPAA and the recovery of remains from the B-24 "Tulsamerican" (42-251430) which crashed off Vis. Interesting show which also touched on a few other recoveries. I am not sure if the link is in anyway restricted, but hopefully anyone interested can view it.
