    National Geographic Presents: Critical Situation: North Hollywood Shootout

    Anyone watching it right now?

    I've seen documentaries on it before, but never in such detail.

    What channel?
    I've seen a couple of different detailed documentaries. Pretty bone-chilling stuff.

    If anyone is interested, I have the tape they handed out at one of the State instructor conferences, which breaks the whole thing down in pretty good detail.

    It is on VHS and taking up shelf space.

    Is that the incident that they made a film of, starring David Soul?

    Memphis, PM me an address to mail it to.

    Edited to add: Never mind, you already sent me the address! I'll mail it with the plate.

    I just ask that you share it around with anyone else that wants it when you are done with it.

    The only film I am aware of was "44 minutes."

    Don't think he was in it.

    Not to jump completely off-topic, but anyone know how to get hold of a copy of the Florida FBI shootout documentary/training video?

    During radio academy we watched a video on it....listened to all the radio transmissions of it, and watched interviews of those personally affected by it.

    Looks like the whole thing is on youtube

    Another series of clips is the radio traffic, condensed for time.

    That shouldn't have been a training video....talk about unprepared.... It should be what NOT to do.

    I saw a movie version with Doug Sheehan that was supposed to be a fairly accurate recreation. I don't know if it's available on video/dvd though.

    I have no idea if that was it or not. It got pulled pretty quickly so I didn't get to see it.
