The first part of the commercial-free documentary Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero airs tonight on the Discovery Channel. Produced by Steven Spielberg, this six-hour special documents the people, process and challenges behind constructing the 104-story One World Trade Center tower. The first three installments premier tonight, August 25, at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific Time and concludes on Thursday, September 1.
A preview clip of the documentary is available on The Hollywood Reporter website, here. The fourth minute of the video clip shows steel as an integral part of rebuilding Ground Zero.
The six one-hour installments are:
Reclaiming the Skyline, Part 1
Reclaiming the Skyline, Part 2
Stories from the Pile
A New City
A Gateway to New York
A Place to Mourn
The broadcast schedule is available on the Discovery Channel’s website, here.
The steel tower at One World Trade Center is one of four skyscrapers envisioned for the site, as well as a transportation hub, (see yesterday’s news post, here) a museum, and a memorial that is expected to open by the 10th anniversary of the 2001 attacks.
Steel construction at One World Trade Center reached its halfway point on December 16, 2010. For more information and to view the project’s construction progress, visit our previous news post, here.
