I'm trying to find the name of the movie, in fact it was a dramatazation, of a terrorist attatck along a harbor, where the terrorists had a homemade nulcear device on board a tug boat and were in the harbor and threatened to exlode it. I can remember some commandos stormed the boat and killed everyone except a network cameraman and reporter that were running the story live the whole time... the movie (dramatazation) was a news broadcast that carried the entire event live.... it was kind of cheaply made but it was very traumatic for me as a kid ...

then the NEST Team goes in and tries to disarm the bomb and they end up exploding the damn thing....the best part was the ending with the video footage being spooled backward to reveal the explosion from a naval carrier about 4 miles away....

around 1983 or so...

forgot about that movie...
no this was no famous actors... was realistic like a real news broadcast....with a breaking story.... the whole movie revolved around the news desk up until the explosion.... was very dramatic... was like watching FOX news while 9/11 was happening....
the people at the network basically watched their reporters die LIVE during the newscast...

underneath in crawling letters was "this is a dramatazation"

It was an HBO or Cinimax special...designed to scare the crap out of the sheeple and make them angry at Ronaldus Magnus. The idea was that the actors were all CNN clones following the story. Sort of like a modern "War of The Worlds" live scare flic. The Hollywierd Left made a couple of the damn things during the '80s.

I'll look for the "documentary".
