Science Channel Comes to Rosemont


Last week I had the privilege of working with a British film crew that is filming a documentary for the Science Channel on the collapse of the Horizon in 1979. This will probably air early next year. The film will portray the how and why of the collapse, the emergency responders and that fateful day, how Mayor Stephens changed Illinois law to ensure public construction was built by credible construction companies and how Rosemont made a comeback from that horrible tragedy. As one of the producers termed it: “the little engine that could”. I will be doing some of the narration of the tragic days events and a tour of Rosemont today. Hopefully this will be an intro to the reopening of the Village and it’s venues. A special thank you to Mayor Stephens and the Village of Rosemont for embracing this British film crew and opening their doors to this worthwhile documentary for the Science Channel.
