Join the largest and most emotionally fraught crime scene investigation in history. This DVD gives you exclusive access to the NYPD department in charge of Ground Zero.
- Never-before-seen footage takes you behind the scenes of the 9-11 investigation .
- Det. Joe Blozis declared Ground Zero a crime scene in anticipation of a future trial.
- Nearly 1.5 million tons of debris choked the WTC site, all of it potential evidence.
The towers fell. It was an act of terror. It was an unimaginable crime.
Having barely escaped death himself, Detective Joe Blozis, commander of the NYPD's elite Crime Scene Unit (CSU), immediately tasked his squad with scouring the chaotic maelstrom of Ground Zero for evidence.
But as the enormity of the tragedy sank in, what began as a hunt for useful data for a future trial evolved into something far more poignant. The focus of Blozis and his team turned to providing comfort and closure to the families of the missing and presumed dead.
This moving documentary takes you into the trenches, into the very heart of 9-11's aftermath. With exclusive and extensive access, using footage never aired before, GROUND ZERO SEARCH AND RECOVERY revisits the scene of the crime. See how CSU operated at the epicenter of national tragedy, how they balanced the need for information with the need for tribute, and what they uncovered at Ground Zero.
