===Seconds From Disaster - Show General Information===
The program investigates historically relevant man-made and natural disasters. Each episode aims to explain a single incident by analyzing the causes and circumstances that ultimately affected the disaster.
The series features historical reenactment, interviews, testimony, and CGI (Computer-generated Imagery) to deconstruct the sequence of events second-by-second for the audience.
Each episode begins with a chronological re-enactment of the disaster, which is always cut into several scenes displaying critical moments in the unfolding of the disaster with a clock appearing at the beginning of each scene. After the sequence of events, the show "winds back" the scenes to analyse the causes and events leading up to it.
=== Episode Information ===
Fighter aircraft on the aircraft carrier USS Forrestal prepare to launch for a sortie over Vietnam. An electrical power surge together with an ineffective safety mechanism and altered weapon-arming procedures cause the accidental firing of a Zuni rocket. The rocket strikes another armed and fuelled aircraft, starting a fire that detonates various munitions. Firefighting efforts inadvertently spread the fire below deck. The disaster kills 132 personnel with a further 161 wounded and 2 missing, presumed dead.
=== COMING SOON===
As of today I have another 20 episodes to upload and will try to get one done every couple of days until they are all done. If there is a particular episode you are looking for, pm me and I'll try to move it up the list.
=== Uploader's Comments===
Note 1: I've discovered that a couple of these have commercials and I'm trying to find software and figure out how to use it in order to eliminate same. If you've downloaded one of these with the adverts you have my apologies. This particular episode is advert free.
Note 2: In only a couple of minor instances I've noticed the audio slightly out of sync with the video. As these episodes are mostly narrated by an unseen narrator it is of little consequence and only affects the occasional portion of the show involving very short interviews. This has only occurred a couple of times in the 30 or so episodes I have viewed. I am personally unable to view videos and the like when this problem occurs but have had no difficulty with these shows. I am quite new at all of this and would welcome any and all feedback. Feel free to pm me with any comments or suggestions.
Enjoy the show.
