Watched that.
Very enjoyable.
After the war my Father became an engineer and worked with Barnes Wallace at Brooklands, which I now live about five miles away from and has become a massive aircraft and motor museum.

Yah, Slow's was where they tried to re-design the whole bomb, and mission from scratch, building a custom dam in Canada to target.

Why not just use a dam that's already there, I mean it's Canada, right?

Yeah, but any Tim Horton's, Molson breweries or similar critical facilities downstream would nix that plan. Wink

Good point. lol.
It wasn't a functioning dam, just a structure that was put together in a blind of an existing lake.
It had some water behind it which was incorporated into the design to show the pressure reaction.
I missed the very end of it so didn't see if they were eventually allowed actual explosives in the device.
