Did anyone watch this? I watched the first part and will watch the rest later (taped.) It was basically a story on the great marvel of the WTC's. They did this back in Jan 2001, but said they would show it sort of as an obituary. Good info.

Watched it and impressed on the whole building process.

Anyone else have eerie feelings at times when watching it? I've watched countless other disaster shows but the above was a little weird feeling.

I felt weird hearing the people talk about terrorism before Sept 11. I was strange to hear their views then.

i'm glad they showed it, since everyone else is scrambling to erase that memory. the absence of those towers on the skyline is like a festering, open wound, i may never get used to it.

I saw it last night, the segment with Mr. D'Martini was eerie. He was explaining that the towers were designed to withstand a direct hit or multiple hits from a Boeing 707. Which they did. The resulting fire, however, was not factored in. There are no modern buildings that can handle a fire like that, equivalent to three truck tankers worth of jet fuel exploding at the same time. And it was very sad to hear that one of the planes hit directly on his office/living space. He never had a chance.

That was a good show, and I liked that they did it without commercials. Kudos to the History Channel.
