Shockwave is an American documentary television series that premiered on November 30, 2007, on History. The program compiles video footage and eyewitness accounts to the headline making events and attempts to educate the viewer as to what really happened in a particular event.

The show depicts the United Airlines Flight 232 crash, USS Forrestal fire, the Killdozer, the Mount Hood hiking incident, the deadly Ramstein airshow disaster, and the PEPCON disaster.

The toolbox of resources which the show employs to perform this task include (but are not limited to) the following items:

  • Video footage
  • Photographs
  • 3-D renderings (computer-generated imagery) of the event
  • Eyewitness accounts (testimony/interviews)
  • Participant accounts (interviews)

Each episode has typically four, five or six stories (or events). For each, people who witnessed the event or who were involved in the event are interviewed, video footage and photos of the event are shown, and 3-D renderings of the event are shown.
