A very quick turnaround edit about the technologies that worked - and failed - in the investigation that followed the attack on the Boston Marathon in April, 2013.
From the assembly of the first scene to air was only 2 weeks. It couldn't have been done without the support of editors Mike Amundson and Brian Truglio, and the team at Outpost that managed the shared storage and delivery.
The film won the 2014 Emmy for Outstanding Science Programming.
It is streaming on NOVA's website.

Follow Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong as he journeys from Madison Square Gardens to Broadway - 8 blocks and a world away. Broadway Idiot is a feature length documentary about how the hit record American Idiot was translated into a musical.
It's a rare insight into the machinations of Broadway, but at the heart of this film is the personal story of a punk rock star who finds himself drawn into the world of theatre. It's an experience that ultimately transforms not only American Idiot, but also Billie Joe Armstrong himself.
