In 1962, three prisoners escaped from Alcatraz, a prison surrounded on all sides by the waters of San Francisco Bay, and disappeared. The fates of the three men have remained unknown to the present day. In this program, three scientists from the Netherlands employ 3D modeling technology to reconstruct the water currents of the day of the prison break in an attempt to uncover whether or not it was possible for the men to have survived.

An enlightening examination of what might have happened to convicts attempting to escape the infamous island. Along the way you get good insight into the challenges of the bay, as well as the story of the escape. Whether or not they made it remains a question, but it makes for a good tale.
