This week on TV – 5 to 10 October 09

Heres my pick of this weeks TV, for all things historical. Sadly, theres not much in the way of quanity this week, but its more than made up for in quality.

Monday – How do they do it? looks at how Cold War military hardware is being recycled (Five, 7.30pm).

Tuesday – Blitz: the Bombing of Coventry examines the devastating Luftwaffe raid on Coventry in 1940, and how the RAF studied the techniques and used them in their subsequent attacks on Nazi Germany (BBC2, 9pm)

Also on Tuesday Warship follows HMS Bulwark to Phuket in Thailand, and the age-old ‘crossing the line’ ceremony (Five, 9pm).

Wednesday – World War I in colour explores the events of 1918, when Allied troops over-ran the Hindenburg line, the Kaiser went into exile and Germany finally surrendered (Five, 9pm)
