"I thank my lucky stars that I purchased this item used. This "documentary" starts you with a five minute jumble of footage regarding disasters in general and having nothing to do with airships at all! It is followed by an incredibly long and wandering history of lighter-than-air travel - again having nothing to do with the title of this DVD. The producers' mantra should have been: "This DVD is entitled The Hindenburg Disaster" and stuck to it. Unfortunately, they did not.
The only real items of interest are the speculation on the fabric skin and the actual footage of the disaster because it includes both minutes prior to the explosion and much of the aftermath. There is also some interesting footage (filler)of a replica of the control car from the disaster movie "The Hindenburg" or was it "The Movie Disaster Hindenburg" and a fabulous museum in Germany with a fullscale replica of the passenger accomodations. I would have given this item a "1 star" had it not been for the above. YMMV"
Could have been better

"A documentary of the Hindenburg disaster through the eyes of actual eye witnesses. The missing element was Herb Morrison's radio announcement. Why was it left out?"
