Movies-icon-48BBC Reporters Jane Standley and Philip Hayton Report WTC 7's Destruction In Advance

 

On the afternoon of 9/11 itself, BBC reporters Jane Standley (on location in New York City) and Philip Hayton (in the BBC World studios) report on the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 (the Salomon Brothers Building) - the third steel-framed high-rise to be completely destroyed that day - over 20 minutes before it actually happens at 5:20 pm. While I can't verify the exact time of the live broadcast, the building - which she is saying has already fallen - can clearly be seen still standing behind her head. A response by the BBC to the ensuing controversy can be read here.
