Commencing at 9pm on Thursday 6th January 2011, there is a 2 part dramatisation of 'The Laconia Incident'.

This is the infamous incident in which Werner Hartenstein's U-Boat tried to save the survivors of the RMS Laconia sinking but was instead strafed and bombed by an American plane during the rescue operation. Part 2 is on Friday 7th January, also on BBC2.
