UXB stands for UneXploded Bomb. This series takes place in London during WWII when Germany was dropping bombs on Britain. Not all the bombs exploded and as the public discovered these UXBs they contacted this squad for deactivation and removal of the devices. You follow the men of this squad in their lives, loves, and as they attempt to disarm the bombs. Think of the TV shows "Emergency!" or "Adam-12" but this time they're bomb experts in WWII London. Originally broadcast on PBS and brought to you by the same person who brought you "Upstairs Downstairs." -- recommended by Charlotte K. - Bennett Martin Public Library
