    The Video

    Because of the strong response to the Black Hawk Down serial in The Philadelphia Inquirer, we have made the video companion documentary available for purchase.

Produced by KR Video. This video is the uncut, 57-minute version of the show that aired on CNN as Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War.

    Watch a preview of the video. (RealVideo format).
