Not an innovative TV documentary (certainly not as innovative as its subject), but Azorian: The Raising of the K-129 (2009) is, nevertheless, recommended for telling a little-known or forgotten Cold War event: the CIA’s clandestine project to raise an imploded Soviet nuclear sub (K-129) from the floor of the north Pacific. The project’s code name, Azorian, demonstrated the partial triumph of unprecedented American engineering in the 1970s, while the Russians believed their vessel to be unrecoverable.
