Exploring a re-creation of the Hindenburg airship

It is nearly 80 since the Hindenburg airship - the world's largest ever aircraft at the time - flew for the first time in March 1936. Some 14 months later it exploded on a transatlantic flight to New Jersey.

In Germany's Zeppelin museum, visitors can explore a re-creation of part of the Hindenburg.

The BBC Travel Show's Rajan Datar explores the reproduction and finds out about the future of airship travel.
