Versteege worked on "Thunder in the Sky" for two years because he thought there should be a video on the Explosion and a record of survivors before it was too late. "I think it's important to put it on tape because they're all going to be gone. I was in tears many times."

This is an excellent documentary and an important aspect of Halifax history that should be known to every citizen.
I hope it gets wide use in our schools.

Your use of present day experts on the explosion, stories from the survivors coupled with historic photos, sketches, footage, and sound effects recreated a memorable and moving experience.
Your documentary will greatly assist the present generation and generations for years to follow in reliving the events of that horrible day from the past.
