#MARITIME TV PROGRAMMES - A sunken U-boat off Malin Head will be one of the sites visited by Dan Snow in a new series looking at Northern Ireland's role in the Second World War.

Dig WW2 With Dan Snow, a three-part series for the BBC, will see the historian travel to key sites across Europe where Northern Ireland's influence played a key roe in the outcome of the war - including some of the 350 wartime sites in the North alone.

In the first episode, the documentary series will follow Snow and his team as they dive to the bottom of the Atlantic "to reveal the surreal image of Sherman tanks littering the seabed" and to the wreck of a U-boat "that was one of the most successful in the German fleet".

Snow said: “As a military historian World War II is a story I thought I knew but now I’ve come to Northern Ireland where I’m discovering all sorts of incredible stories - secrets, heroism, suffering and valour.

"This is the untold story of how Northern Ireland played a pivotal role in the war and how its people helped shape the outcome.”

Dig WW2 With Dan Snow begins Monday 14 May at 9pm on BBC One Northern Ireland.
