Hindenburg Disaster Newsreel Footage
The narration is done by the on-the-scene reporter Herbert Morrison, who was there to watch the zeppelin's arrival in the United States. Morrison was a radio reporter whose commentary was recorded and not broadcast until later. It has been combined with the separately filmed newsreel footage. To modern eyes, the result may appear to have been a live broadcast with pictures and sound, but it was not.
The documentary has been selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.
