One year ago this month, the Boston Marathon bombings shook a city – and nation – to the core with acts of senseless violence. The worst terrorist attack since 9/11, two pressure cooker bombs decimated the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing 3 people and injuring an estimated 264 others.
On April 13, to mark the one-year anniversary of the bombings, the documentary special Inside the Hunt for the Boston Bombers honors the victims of the attack and the brave Bostonians who defended justice for their city.
With unprecedented access to the FBI, Boston Police Department, survivors of the bombings and those caught up in the manhunt, National Geographic Channel presents a powerful and conclusive account of the bombings and the manhunt for suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, told in the city’s own words.
Using news media footage, amateur-shot video, firsthand accounts and dramatic recreations, Inside the Hunt for the Boston Bombers takes viewers through the tense 102 hours, as information unfolded piece by piece to investigators, the media and the public at large.
Still an open wound for the survivors of the horrific event, Inside the Hunt for the Boston Bombers pays tribute to the heroes of the bombings: the men and women who fought to bring their beloved city back from the brink of disaster.
Watch the official trailer below.
Inside the Hunt for the Boston Bombers premieres on April 13 at 9P.
