9/11 Science and Conspiracy Director's Diary

9/11: Science and Conspiracy
Premieres Monday August 31 at 9P et/pt
Director's Diary During the Filming of the Show

DEMOLITION PREP

Director Robert Erickson documents the demolition of a dormitory on a college campus to compare the process with what conspiracy theorists claim took place in the twin towers and caused them to fall.

WEDNESDAY 11/19/08

I arrived in Thibidoux, Louisiana just after 1PM this afternoon. The Demolition team had not been clear about exactly where on the Nicholls State University campus this old dormitory was located. I called the foreman and he told me to look for the tallest building in the area. I finally found the nine-story brick structure behind the football field. They gave me a hard hat and set me loose. I fired up the HD camera and rolled tape. The place was abuzz with acetylene torches and sparks flying as they cut the steel beams. About a dozen workers. Lots of noise, jack hammers and big equip. Thinking about the World Trade Center towers I considered how difficult it would be to do this work without someone noticing.

The building is nine stories high. An old dormitory. They have knocked through the cinderblocks and are torching the beams, actually cutting a large "V" to weaken them. They will finish the major prep on Thursday and load the explosives on Friday.

Jim Redyke, from Dykon Demolition, tells me that the beams they are cutting here in Louisiana are puny compared to the WTC beams. WTC beams are ten times larger. Some effort spent on weakening the heavily cemented staircase/elevator shaft.

THURSDAY 11/20/08

It is cold again this morning but will warm up through the day. Redyke was fairly helpful today. I ventured onto the upper floors to see their destructive efforts there. Cinderblock columns smashed to reveal the steel girder beneath. I captured--more destruction, more torches, and a safety meeting. In the early afternoon Redyke put together the explosives, inserting fuses into the copper shape charges and dynamite sticks.

The University is planning quite a celebration for the implosion. They've invited crowds, put the blast off till 11AM, they are selling raffle tickets to see who pushes the button, and the Jazz band is coming to play a New Orleans style funeral dirge just before the explosion.

Find out what happens in the rest of the director's diary >>

And don't forget to tune in on Monday August 31 9P et/pt for the premiere of 9/11: Science and Conspiracy.

THE STORY BEHIND 9/11: HIT OR MYTH?
http://www.nypost.com/php/pfriendly/print.php?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nypost.com%2Fseven%2F08282009%2Ftv%2Fthe_story_behind_9_11__hit_or_myth__186793.htm

By MAXINE SHEN


August 28, 2009 --

EIGHT years after Sept. 11, the debate over what ex actly happened that tragic day -- and who is to blame -- rages on.

Several of the most widely known tenets dear to the hearts of those who don't believe the official explanation for what brought down the Twin Towers are put to the test Monday night in an unusual National Geographic Channel special, "9/11: Science and Conspiracy."

* Was the Pentagon hit by an airplane or a missile?

* Did the Twin Towers really collapse from fires caused by burning jet fuel?

* Or were carefully placed explosives inside the buildings the real cause of its collapse?

The special is built around a series of scientific experiments that were conducted under the watchful eyes of a group of Truthers -- the name the conspiracy movement has given itself.

But at least one local Truther -- Sander Hicks, producer of WeDemandTransparency.com and author of the controverisial conspiracy book, "The Big Wedding" -- has seen a critic's DVD of the special and has his own reaction:

"This documentary is clearly part of the cover-up," he says.

Hicks takes issue with everything from the way the documentary seemed to brush off Truthers as being "sick, stupid and psychologically damaged because we need the truth," he says, to its choice of scientific experts.

Not suprisingly, his biggest criticism was with the way the experiments were conducted.

"It's pseudo-science," Hicks says. "Any high school student would tell you, to do experiments in New Mexico [where much of the pyrotechnic tests were conducted] with different kinds of materials is a joke."

The explosives planted in the WTC argument? The TV special tested with only regular thermite (a pyrotechnic compound) and not "super thermite" as Truthers believe was the culprit.

"That's like saying, 'We want to do an experiment with whiskey, but we're going to use beer instead," Hicks says.

While the reason for this is explained in the documentary -- there's a question as to super thermite's actual existence -- executive producer Erik Nelson says he'd been dealing with the debunking debunkers for a while now.

Nelson, who says he "didn't have a dog in this hunt," insists that the goal of "9/11: Science and Conspiracy" wasn't to debunk Truthers, sway any minds or hide contrary test results.

The producer concedes he would've loved it if the Truther theories were proven correct.

"Our ratings would've gone through the roof!" he says.

"What do you think is more ratings grabbing: proof 9/11 was a conspiracy or proof that the official story was correct?" he asks. "It would've been fantastic to prove that the Truthers were correct, but sadly -- as far as my ratings are concerned -- that's not what happened.

"I would say that [Hicks'] response would be no different from the Truthers we shared our results with in the film," Nelson says -- "absolute rejection of every single point we're bringing up."

He goes on to add that "there's no more pseudo-science used in our forensic tests than the pseudo-science used in promoting the Truther theo-

One thing that Hicks did like about the documentary was that it gave the featured Truthers a fair shake.

They "come off as careful and professional, unemotional, but compassionate about the truth," he says. "A lot of times a documentary like this will cut up their words," but this one didn't.

"I actually take great hope from this [documentary] because it really shows that our opposition is on the ropes," Hicks says.

"One good thing about this documentary is that it's showing that the topic is still relevant and that the case isn't closed."

"9/11: Science and Conspiracy" to air on National Geographic Channel
http://www.dailypaul.com/node/104847

Posted August 28th, 2009 by bigmikedude

For those interested, The National Geographic Channel will be airing a program called - "9/11: Science and Conspiracy".

From National Geographic. com -
"NGC conducts a forensic investigation to test the tenets of some of the most common conspiracy theories of 9/11 and mysteries surrounding the attacks."

The airings are as follows:

Mon. Aug 31, 9PM
Tue. Sep 1, 12AM (Late Monday Nite for you late-nighters)
Sat. Sep 5, 9PM
Sun. Sep 6, 12AM (Late Saturday Nite for you late-nighters)
Mon. Sep 7 12PM

I do not know if there is a difference in the air times according to time zones. I don't see anything on the NGC site that indicates that there is. I am assuming by the site's TV Schedule that maybe they air it progressively (at the times shown) in each time zone?

TV Schedule also here:

I like the way these documentaries always try to psychoanalyze conspracy theorists. Stick to the evidence!  And present it fairly, don't stick biased little comments in there.  ALL docs should be objective, not snippy.
