Video – Trip down a dusty memory lane…

Can you imagine the outcry is this was replicated today.

Although we like to keep our finger on the pulse of the industry today, we still enjoy a trip down memory lane from time to time; particularly when that trip includes an insight into how things used to be done.

Case in point, the explosive demolition of the Cuyahoga and Williamson buildings on Cleveland’s Public Square back in 1982. It was an event that attracted thousands of onlookers as well as TV cameras. Just one problem. No-one, aside from the man in charge, was prepared for the ensuing dust cloud.

Check out the video below and be sure to stick around to the 1.43 mark as that demolition man gives one of the best and most succinct interviews in the history of TV.
