Rosie O'donnell World Trade Center 7 Seven 9/11: bombs 9/11

Hi!

Im looking for the original footage from the beginning of this clip (I have no idea why they choose to call it "Rosie O'Donnell". But they did):

"Rosie O'donnell World Trade Center 7 Seven 9/11: bombs 9/11"

http://youtube.com/watch?v=FFV0T_HLR...elated&search=

There are one (two?) explosions at the start - since I dont know when this was shot, I don't know what it might be. The videoeditors obviously claims its the CD that took down WTC7. However, I have reason to believe the sound is fake and I would like to know if anyone knows of any other version of it floating around on the net.

Cheers,
S

The HBO doco appears to credit the footage to Lucia Davis of BNN (whatever that is). Lucia Davis also appears in MSNBC Investigates: 24 Hours at Ground Zero (source). Maybe that's where the clip comes from.

I found two possible BNN's (since I refuse to think its Bulgarian News Network...):

If it's actually a noise they hear, it's obviously not demolitions explosives taking down WTC 7, since these guys are only a couple of blocks away, the noise is not followed by a building collapse, and everyone isn't running in terror. So there's that.

That building had MANY large transformers in it. The use very flamible oil to cool them with. It wouldn't suprise me if a few blew up before the collapse. Maybe it even helped to collapse the building.

I did a bit of research when it was first raised...

Apparently it appeared in a documentary called "9/11 Stories From The City" which was broadcast by Zone Reality TV in the UK. They told me they acquired the programme from a distributor called Camera Planet. Camera Planet did not respond to my inquiries.

Though I haven't seriously investigated it, the footage appears to me to be shortly after the collapse of either WTC 1 or 2, probably 2. It certainly doesn't appear to be late afternoon when 7 collapsed.

I'm 90% sure this footage was taken at 10:16am - between the two collapses and before WTC7 was hit by WTC1.

You missed at least one. It's Boston Community Access TV and Google suggests that Ms. Davis has been associated with them.
