History Detectives (TV Show)

Does anyone else watch the PBS TV show History Detectives?

They had an interesting episode last night about the Black Tom explosion of 1916. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Tom_explosion
http://www.pbs.org/opb/historydetectives/

The Black Tom explosion was a act of terrorism committed during World War One by the German government, but that was covered up by the Woodrow Wilson administration who claimed it was an accident rather then German sabotage. He did this to ensure he would be reelected as he was running on an anti-war campaign.

The truth was revealed 9 years after the incident.

I love that show. It's so eye opening. I haven't seen that episode but it sounds really cool. Unfortunately I don't much chance to watch the history channel much, because my coworkers don't really enjoy it as much as I do. I hadn't heard about the Black Tom Explosion but it doesn't sound surprising. I am just curious how many similar incidents have been committed since than. I am sure it's not the only one.
