"And argument. What the defense said in the final argument was folks. It's very simple from his last breath to passing out was 66 seconds. Now you've heard doctors say that's not enough time to die for lack of oxygen, But it is enough time to die from a heart incident. An arrhythmia cardiac event, heart attack. The jury didn't buy that, either. Now you weaken, speculate as to why they didn't buy it, And maybe they'll talk to us. But I think the conventional wisdom is the video was so dramatic here was George Floyd. Pleading for his life screaming and the knee stayed on the neck. Even after the pulse was gone. He was passed out too many people, that's all you need, and the confusion and the complexity of a bunch of people with fancy degrees disagreeing can't take away that vivid image from the juror's minds. ABC News legal analyst, Royal Oaks on the conviction of Derek Shelvin all three counts, including the top charge of second degree murder. His bail was instantly revoked. He was led away by a Hennepin County sheriff's deputy and he will be sentenced. In about two months time when he faces up to 40 years in prison, though, in all likelihood, hey will face far less than that, as it is his first conviction first criminal conviction. We are waiting to hear remarks from President Biden and former on device President Harris. They spoke with members of the Floyd family. And they, along with their attorney, Ben Crump, are expected to speak a short time from now. So still a lot of reaction to this verdict.

That we saw in the background of those videos recorded when Floyd had died beneath the knee of Officer Sheldon Sheldon convicted as charged all three counts against him. And you heard the Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison, say the verdict reminder reminds us how hard it is to make enduring change. Children had his face obscured by a mask due to the pandemic, so we couldn't really see much reaction, though his eyes were sort of darting around the courtroom. And we are going to here in all likelihood from defense attorney Eric Nelson. Maybe not today, but in the form of an appeal, that will no doubt come And we'll wait to bring you any reaction from the defense or from Sheldon himself. Very few members of Sheldon's team appeared in court to support him over the course of the trial. One or two would pop in but very often aside from his defense attorney Derek Children was on his own. And when he stood to hear the verdict, the judge ordered him to stand his face covered by a mask, but his eyes were looking around the courtroom. You don't know of any supporter of his was in there to hear that verdict, But there was we know the brother of George Floyd Polonius, who had testified a trial and and he had his C maybe praying and had his head toward his knees. And gradually, his body started shaking and he started saying yes as that verdict came down guilty as charged for for Derek Sheldon. I want to turn to George Floyd Square. There are members of the public that are speaking there now. To get their reaction. And and we can hear some of those members of the community.

"That incident had led store employees to call. The police Lawyers also play dramatic police body cam footage of Floyd's arrest. NPR's Adrian Florido is in Minneapolis covering the trial. Hey, Adrian. Hi also, so tell us who was called to the witness stand today. A few witnesses. The first new witness today was a 19 year old named Christopher Martin on He was the cashier at the Cup Foods corner store who took the fake $20 bill that George Floyd used to buy cigarettes on Git was in the context of this young man's testimony. The prosecution played surveillance video from inside the store video We've never seen before. And in this video, we see George Floyd walking around buying a banana, seeming to joke with a couple of people, giving one of them a hug and eventually buying those cigarettes. It's not remarkable video. Really, until you realize that You're seeing the last minutes of the life of this man who, within a couple of days would become a global global symbol. Yeah. I mean, what do you think The point wasn't playing this video for the jury? The prosecution seemed to be trying to humanize George Floyd because they expect the defense to attack Floyd's character in part by focusing on his drug use. This cashier Christopher Martin testified that Floyd did seem to be under the influence of drugs at the store. But that he was friendly that he was easy to deal with, and that they even talked about how Floyd had played football. But we know that the store employees had called the police in the first place because Floyd had used to fake $20 bill in the store, so I'm curious. What did this cashier Christopher Martin? What did he say now about accepting that bill? He said that when Floyd handed him that $20 bill, he knew instantly that it was fake cashiers at this store got their paychecks doctor if they accepted fake bills, But But the witness told defense attorney Eric Nelson that despite that he decided to let Floyd pay with it. Even though he had rejected a counterfeit bill from one of Floyd's friends earlier in the day. Was that in part because you felt maybe he's under the influence, partially, partially, the other person I had come in. It kind of seemed like he was trying to scheme like he knew it was a fake bill. He was trying to get over. I thought that George didn't really know that it was a fake bill, so I thought I'd be doing them a favor. You said that it was only after his store manager saw the bill and told him to go find Floyd in his car and ask him to come back into the store that he did that on. It was after Floyd twice refused to come back that one of his co workers called the police. And how did he describe what unfolded after that? Martin eventually ran outside to watch as officer show of in hell deployed under his knee and in surveillance video from outside of the store. We can see him sort of standing on the sidewalk at distressed and prosecutor Matthew Frank asked him about that. Start. You're standing there with your hands on your head for awhile. Correct. Good was going through your mind during that time period disbelief. Thank you. Why guilt? Um, if I would've just Not taking the bill could have been avoided. In other words, he felt that the favor he tried to do for Floyd had backfired. Yeah, I mean, this cashier this man Christopher Martin. He seems to be joining a number of witnesses who are feeling tremendous guilt about what happened to George Floyd. Yeah, We've heard that from a lot of witnesses have testified this week. Another witness today was Charles McMillion, a bystander who watched Derek show of impending George Boyd down to and who was urging Floyd to get up. Get in the car, even though Floyd was pinned down. Today. One of the prosecutors played some of the video of Floyd's arrest for him, and this witness just just broke down. Listen, I know this is difficult..

"It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noel King, and I'm Rachel Martin, eight minutes and 46 seconds. That's the amount of time that former police officer Derrick Show Vin was believed to have held his knee on George Floyd's neck. 8 46 became part of a rallying cry in protests around the world. It appeared on signs people chanted it! They held vigils and stayed quiet for eight minutes and 46 seconds to Mark Floyd's death. Day one of Derek Sheldon's trial, prosecutors said Sheldon actually held his knee on Floyd for nearly 9.5 minutes. There are two central questions in this murder trial. What exactly killed George Floyd and did Officer show Vin used excessive force? We're joined now by Charles Coleman Jr. He's a civil rights lawyer and former prosecutor. He joins us on the line from Brooklyn. Thanks so much for being here. Good morning, Rachel. Thank you for having me. The prosecuting attorney Jerry Blackwell showed the video of Shoven kneeling on Floyd's neck for nine minutes and 29 seconds, which is 43 seconds longer than initially reported. Yesterday, Blackwell told jurors that the video is proof Shoven used excessive force. Let's listen. You can believe your eyes. That it's homicide's murder. How far do you think the video of Floyd's arrest goes to proving beyond a reasonable doubt that shot and killed Floyd? I think just from a human sensibility standpoint, the video itself is so significant, so powerful that it can't help but to have a huge impression on the jury. I mean, you know this is a video which struck at the core of our humanity in such a way that I mean it prompted protests and reaction throughout the world and So when you show that video in court what you're going to see and what you did see was something that I think you can't ignore. So regardless of what the law says, from the judge, and regardless of what the facts are found to be by the jury It could be very little argument that that video itself is going to definitely have a huge impression on this trial. The defense knew that going into prosecution knew that, of course, and that's going to be something that the hammer home to try to keep this. A simple and straightforward for the jury is possible. Defense, for its part, is arguing that Sheldon and the other officers were distracted by the crowd that was growing there after Floyd was arrested and then pinned to the ground. Let's play a little bit of Sheldon's defense attorney, Eric Nelson. Screaming at him. Causing the officers to divert their attention from the care of Mr Floyd to the threat that was growing in front of men. Can you speak to the strategy there? This reveals? I mean, are they trying to prove George Floyd's death was involuntary, not premeditated. Well, what they're trying to do. Right? There is basically put put the jury in the mindset of the police officers who were responsible for responding to that night. I mean to that to that dispatch call. What they're trying to do is humanize them in such a way That basically says that you know, this was a distraction issue. This was a call. You know. George Boyd was somebody who died because of reasons other than a knee being on his neck. They're trying to create reasonable doubt, and they're basically not left with a bunch to work with. So it's not surprising to me to see them throw these other things in the mix. I mean, they are basically going to try to argue that this was not in proper police procedure. And then I'm sure you will see at some point the defense make an argument that Oh, well, you know, Their Children wasn't perfect, but he wasn't you know, and using excessive force, and I think the initial issue of the officers being distracted by the crowd, or that argument is one that comes into the hole. Well, they're not perfect. This is something that is essentially, you know, a function of human error. I don't know how well that is going to play with the jury. But I do know that all of these different arguments that they are trying to advance are essentially a function off. Just any method that they can use to try and create reasonable doubt in the mind of those yours. I mean another way they're going to do that is to talk about the drugs that were found in George Floyd's system, traces of fentanyl and recent methamphetamine use. Is that going to be complicated for the prosecution? Um, there may be some complications there. I mean, I think that the prosecution is likely going to have to call in medical expert in terms of being able to establish clearly what the cause of death was, I think You know to to the extent that the defense is able to they're going to try to make an argument that perhaps were those those those drugs traces of those drugs not and Mr Floyd system that you know, he may have been able to withstand the pressure that was being placed on his neck. Or perhaps he would not have been as as resistant, even though there's now been testimony that he was not resisting and human eyes to see from watching the video that he was unable to resist after a point, But in any That it is going to be something that the defense has to has to bring up and the prosecution has to figure out how they respond to. I want to play a bit from one of the witnesses yesterday. This was a 911 dispatcher, and he was Jenna Scurry. She's describing Watching Floyd's arrest life from a police surveillance camera. Let's Listen. You can call me Thank you to auntie. But we have the cameras up for three twenties calls pulled through there to put him in. The name of the body started moving him. Um and 3 20 over at cup food Focus. Um I don't know if they had to use force or not. They got something out of the back of the squad, and all of them sat on this man. Just briefly. What conclusion? Did the prosecution want the jury to draw from that? That this was unusual that this was not something that was normal that even for a dispatch officer Dispatch representative that this was not something that they were used to seeing. And it was so bad and egregious that they wanted to actually phoned it in because something about this did not feel normal, right? Charles Coleman, junior civil rights lawyer. Thank you. For your perspective. Thanks So much for having me in the Senate, a minority of 41 votes can stop almost any legislation from moving forward. This is the filibuster..

The trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Children kicked off today with opening statements troubling is facing 2nd and 3rd degree murder charges in the death of George Floyd. Here's prosecutor Gerry Blackwell will learn that on May 25th of 2020. Mr Derek Shaman betrayed this badge. When you used excessive And unreasonable force. Upon the body of Mr George Floyd Defense attorney Eric Nelson. There is no political or social cause in this courtroom. But the evidence is far greater than nine minutes and 29 seconds, the time that shove and held Floyd down under his knee. Former assistant United States attorney in Cape A. Kay's legal analyst, Bill Portanova, Very mochi presentation by both sides. The prosecutor is actually beyond Loki. He is, you know, I would have to say he's being professional and business like and we like that. This is a case that has horrible facts, and ultimately, it has to be decided based on facts and not emotion. But those facts have to be gone through and I felt good watching the prosecutor and the defense lawyer approaching these witnesses because it felt very, very competent and business like and that's where this case needs to be. The world needs to watch. Trial. How the United States picks apart an event like this to arrive at the right justice. It's not just the justice you get from a mob that sees the first nine minute video that makes it out of the Internet. It's the justice that he deserved when all of the evidence is in, and it could very well confirm the opinions from that first nine minute video, But we don't know that yet, and anyone who says they're certain of the verdict At this point is overstating their awareness of the facts. I've seen hundreds of trials, maybe thousands of trials. There are facts that the public doesn't know because the Banks are not released to the public by the government or the defense. And on top of that. Media doesn't necessarily have a way to pick up any of these facts themselves so sometimes and opinion is formed an echo chamber of that opinion ricochets around the world. And then we find out later. All this new evidence. Seriously changes that original perception and again prosecutor Gerry Blackwell has to check him for a pulse. You'll see With Mr Shaman, Continuing to eight on his body at the same time doesn't get.

"Manslaughter. And PR reporter Matt Separate. Joins us now on Skype from Minneapolis Man Welcome Hi there. So we heard from the prosecution there. The defense is drawing attention to other circumstances surrounding Floyd's death. Here's attorney Eric Nelson, you will learn Derek Sheldon did exactly what he had been trained to do over the course of his 19 year career. The use of force is not attractive. But it is a necessary component of policing medical examiner ruled that Floyd's death was in fact a homicide. So how is the defense going to get around that? Defense attorneys are expected to point at other factors that medical examiner Dr Andrew Baker found in his autopsy. Floyd's cause of death will be at the center of the defense case, particularly the drugs, Baker found fentanyl and methamphetamine in Floyd system on other medical factors as well. What the defense is trying to do here is create reasonable doubt in the mind of a least one juror that it was something else. Besides Derek Show Van's knee that led to Floyd's death in May of 2020 of the age of 46. Well to that point. The judge in the case had previously ruled that the defense could not use body cam video of police arresting George Floyd during a different traffic. Stop back in 2019. Now he has changed his mind. He will allow them to use some of that video. Why to show his lawyers want the jury to see it. Well. Cahill ruled earlier this month that there is some relevance to Floyd's May 2019 arrests because his physical reaction to that confrontation with police was similar to the way he reacted in the fatal account. Fatal encounter a year later, Okay, hell is on Lee, allowing a portion of the body camera video from that 2019 incident, as well as some testimony regarding Floyd's blood pressure of statements to the paramedics who treated him that day. As well as the suspected drugs in his car. This is really about medical evidence. Cahill said. The paramedic can testify that Floyd had high blood pressure during that day in 2019, and it was so high that he was a risk of a stroke or heart attack. But the judge is not allowing any evidence of Floyd's emotional state from the 2019 encounter, including the fact that he called out for his mother as he did in 2020, so that will be very limited. See well, the prosecution we know they will be relying on that now infamous video of shoving Restraining Floyd in 2020 with the knee on the neck. The video, of course, sparked protest movement around the world. What else will the prosecution be relying on to convince the jury You're right that that video's key. That was the first thing they played this morning during the opening statements, they plan to call Ah lot of expert witnesses, as well as other Minneapolis police officers and the chief Madeira Arredondo to talk all about the use of force. What's acceptable policy and what's not. I expect that they'll continue to argue what prosecutor Gerry Blackwell previewed this morning that Floyd was handcuff subdued, never threatened anyone in the force. That show of unused was far in excess of what was next. Necessary to subdue him. They're also expected to introduce what's called Spark of Life. Testimony will likely hear from Floyd's family and friends about the person that he was a father, a brother. This is all an effort to humanize him. However, this will be limited to because it could open the door to the prosecution, bringing in testimony about negative aspect of Floyd's past, such as his earlier runnings with law, including an armed robbery conviction from 2007. Cahill has prohibited jurors from hearing about that. Cahill said testimony about whether Floyd was a peaceful person or someone prone to violence could allow the defense to introduce evidence of his criminal record and less savory parts of his past. Tell us more about the jury pool that both sides have agreed upon. Well, it's nine women and five men hearing the case. 14 in all two of them are alternate. So only 12 will deliberate. Once everything is done Once testimonies finished here in really about a month. The jury includes six people of color that is far more diverse than Hennepin County, Minnesota as a whole, which is around 70% White. Of the six jurors who are people of color to our bi racial women. One's a black woman who grew up in the area of South Minneapolis, where Floyd was killed. She's retired and three are black men of those black men, too, are immigrants. So it is definitely ah, diverse jury give the demographics of this area. NPR's mats epic following this case for us, thank you very much. You're welcome. Backlash continues over Georgia's new, more restrictive voting law. Critics are calling for a boycott of the state after the Republican governor signed the measure into law last week. And while Georgia is just one of dozens of states trying to reduce voting access, other states are trying to increase it specifically mail in voting used by tens of millions of people during the pandemic. In Massachusetts, Republican Governor Charlie Baker just signed a bill to extend temporary mail in voting until the end of June. Democrats in the state Legislature promised to make it permanent as WB wars Anthony Brooks reports. The debate over vote by mail has become a red hot partisan issue among the biggest advocates of vote by mail in Massachusetts, his secretary of state, William Galvin, a Democrat, because it allows the voting to be done at the convenience of the voter. Extends to voters more time. More reason it'll, in effect ad people to the discussion, which is a very important thing starting last July amidst the pandemic, Massachusetts gay voters the right to vote by mail for any reason. The new law, signed by Governor Baker extends that measure to the end of June that will help voters in a number of local elections. It will also give lawmakers time to make the law permanent. Alvin has a bill to do that one of several being considered by the state Legislature. In effect, it's no excuse absentee voting. This comes as many other states, particularly ones controlled by Republicans are moving in the opposite direction. Here. No. Perez directs the voting rights and election program at the Brennan Center for Justice, She says 43 states have introduced more than 250 bills that would make it harder to vote. On the other hand, we are seeing some states like Massachusetts introduce a slew of bills that would make it easier for people to vote. This demonstrates that we do have two Americas. In a country now defined by political polarization vote by mail has become one of the hottest flashpoints. Charles Stuart the third and M I.

You have a Republican president for reasons that still mystify me, and a lot of people begins a relentless attack on voting by mail. And voters listen to their partisan leaders. This election was rigged, and the Supreme Court and other courts didn't want to do anything about it. Trump is still pushing baseless claims of.

Now four or two to go in the fourth quarter. 34 to 20, Minnesota, on top of the Vikings have a third down. And one that they just converted into a first down at the lion's 19. So they're trying to solve this thing away and get there. First on when off season there own three U. S Bank stadium entering this game now Matthew Stafford, the Detroit quarterback, It's been a rough week. Remember? He was in covert 19 protocol all week was finally cleared last night play. He leaves the game today and go to the concussion protocol. Oh, Chase. Daniel is the backup or Detroit. He did get a two yard touchdown pass through it. Outstanding tight and TJ Haakenson a few minutes ago to close the gap with lions have made a lot of mistakes. Stafford threw two critical interceptions and Detroit has just not been able to come up with any answers for Delvin Cook, and I'm going to make that declaration like out rich. He's the best back in the NFL. He's already out of the game and today's numbers 20 such is on the ground 206 yards rushing to scores, including a 70 yard first to the House. Also for Delvin Cook two receptions, 46 Yard, So Dalvin Cook continues to play amazing football for the Minnesota Vikings, and let's not overlook quarterback dozens. Very efficient Today. 13 of 9220 yards, the former Michigan State Spartan. I'm sure a lot of his old friends and family members watching back in the Great Lakes State three touchdown passes for dozens No interceptions. So the Vikings trying to get the three and five and alliance would drop to three and five. If this thing holds 3 10 to go in the fourth Minnesota 30 for Detroit 20 year and many happy Alright Bryant Sybil is Jacksonville, where the Jags have lost six in a row, trying to halt that probably the Texans, Brian Meabout while trailing by eight points. Jack Defense did come alive briefly with a big third down sack of Shawn Watson out near midfield, forcing affections to put it back to Jacksonville. The Giants to go for the 41. But then on back to back Russia's third run and fourth and run James Robinson stuff with the line there turned the ball over on downs. Judge Stevens did force upon again, but Just now they squandered away another opportunity. They were getting ready to give it back to Houston Once again, so 5 44 to go in this one Texans on top ejection 27 to 19. All right. So one of those two teams will finally end up with a second wind today. Right now. Houston in front. Let's check in with Jeff's L in Atlanta, Jeff Really? Oh, and Jeff, are you there? In the meantime, it's 30 for 13 Falcons in front back to Jeff. In With 406 remaining here in the fourth quarter. Jeffy there. I think we lost Jeff. I'm right here. Okay? The Falcons are on top 34 to 13. With four minutes to go here in the fourth quarter. Broncos. Have that third down and up to 10 yard line. Now Atlanta kind of broke the game open after Todd really four yard touchdown run. The Falcon score was set up when Ricardo Allen picked off through the lock in the 32 returned into the 12. After Matt Ryan completed eight yard touchdown pass to hate her. Scully rented in from the four yard line. Ryan 24 of 32 281 yards, three touchdown passes.

Good afternoon rich and yeah, it's an exciting time here in Southern California. A lot of action going on in the Carolina Panthers coming to town owing to against the Los Angeles Chargers, it's Teddy Bridgewater Show now. Teddy Bridgewater, of course, on his fourth team since he was drafted number one by the Vikings out of Louisville, But he will not have one of his great weapons today. Christian McCaffrey is out with a knee injury, so First year coach. That rule will have to rely on running backs like Davis and Trenton Cannon to give Bridgewater support on the charge.

So the pictures later 20 to 11 point after touchdown tending 5 23 to go rich on cue, and it will be a very big point After guess it'll make it a 10 point game at this point with Just under six minutes left or so, Um, Okay. So now the Vikings have just scored a big play. Let's get the details of that one from Eric Nelson. Yeah. The Minnesota Vikings have cut the gas now to 29 18 green Band top 13 53 to go in the fourth. Kirk Cousins just connected with Adam feeling who ran out of the slacks position on the left side, and he got deep in the end zone and cousins laid one in perfectly 37 yard touchdown throw. They go for the Duce. Calvin Cooke runs it in for two, and the Vikings now are down by just 11. There's still plenty of time left in this game. But the real question is. Can the Minnesota defense slow down? Aaron Rodgers and that Green Bay Packers offense because Rogers has been brilliant 25 36 for 265 yards and three touchdowns passes. In fact, Rogers now is career 367 touchdown throws all time, He has moved into number seven on the NFL's career touchdown passing with you just passed. Eli Manning on his go to guy this Sunday. This opening Sunday of the NFL 2020 season has been Devante Adams, the receiver out of Fresno State. 13 catches 116 yards and two scores for Adam's hey caught the most recent Rogers touchdown throw that was from one yard out also Marquez Valdas Scant. Ling has a touchdown catch and 84 yards receiving. But he's also got rich, too horrible drops in this game, and if he were toe have held onto those balls, the score might be worse. And if Minnesota mounts a comeback Packer fans are going to point to those drops is being the reason why the Vikings have stayed in it. Right now. It's 2019 18 Green Bay on top 13 53 to go in the fourth here in the Twin cities, All right before we get the Chris Russell J. K. Dobbins has just scored for the Ravens now blowing out the Browns, 37 to 6 13 minutes. Love there. Now let's go to a FedEx Field and Chris Russell, where the Redskins have made this one a game.

In this game, Zachary touchdown, Dallas got her to touch down. But then the Carson went started throwing picks. One Jimmy Moreland, one to Fabien Moreau.

"Nazi Germany. And Eric Nelson is the director and he's with us right now Mr. Nelson. How are you, sir? I'm good. I'm good, thanks for being here. And thanks for sharing the story. So what was your what was your goal in making this film? Well, it's kind of last call for the greatest generation, these are guys who did insane acts of bravery, as their day job, seventy five years ago to the day, and they and their stories are fading. And we were able to memorialize commemorate and explore their experiences by making this movie and we interviewed nine nine crew of a composite crew of b seventeen and showed it with this ravishing color footage shot by William Wyler, the great William Wyler back in nineteen forty three. So we've in essence propelled these guys and their story forward into a new into a new generation, the news and into a new century. Thank you for that. And I want to talk about the technical aspects and a little bit. It's our greatest honor on the show, whenever we can talk to some more go to veterans, and we will dedicate a whole hour talking to these guys. And they're the best. So give us the what specifically who you focused on what they did that was so spectacular. Well, I don't want. To name all nine as much as the movie named them, but it would, as I said it was a composite crew one from every position elite pilot co pilot. Bombardier Baltar, Gunnar, rear, gunner navigator, and they all told. Very emotional, and it's hard to describe very much exponential stories about what it was, like, not exactly what they did on this particular mission that mission or when they arrived in Britain or win win. They went home. We ask them questions about what it had flex sound like what, how cold was it? How did the b seventeen fly? How did you deal with your ground crew all of the what I say? Quit Todi and details. Details that people tend to overlook of ordinary men doing absolutely extraordinary things. That was the focus of our conversation, and this film love that. Why why, why did you ask those types of questions as opposed to here's where the flank you didn't end around on the right flank, right? Why do those detailed questions? Because again, if the idea is to construct a time machine to get a viewer back in time to go back seventy five. Years, you don't necessarily need to hear about this particular date, in that particular date. You know it's a relevant. What's important is to connect viewer into the experience of what it was like, that's the mission I was doing. And because their stories are complementing, this ravishing footage raw footage shot in full color by William Wyler, who was documenting everything that was going on. He the, the footage tells a different story. So it it, we were just on this isn't a history channel documentary. You know, we're not trying to tell the history of World War Two, you can read books or watch other documentaries to do that. I heard you mentioned the Peter Jackson film. This is very much the same thing. Jacksonville didn't tell you the story of a particular battle in World War, One it brought you back in time, so you appreciate it. What it looked like sounded like and felt like and we were doing our film at the same time. Peter Jackson was doing his and I'm sort of struck how similar. The two films are in some ways, are you struggling by how popular the Peter Jackson movie was, and hopefully how popular not at all. I knew the I knew that when I first heard the Jackson film is coming out. I absolutely thought it was going to do well, and it's scratching the same issue that we scratch cold blue. So I think at this point in time, people are interested in the past interested in connecting with history and the cold blue connects with American history, and it's connecting with American history on Memorial Day weekend. And on the seventy fifth anniversary of d day. So it's important, I think for this particular weekend to take that journey back into time. And to do it on the big screen, which is the goal of the cold blue. And again tomorrow, only, and I know it's playing near Mesa Edwards. So what did you learn about these men through this process? I knew a lot about the history. So there wasn't a lot that I knew that was incredible discovery. But a couple of things that struck me were that they to, to a man felt that the MO the most dangerous part of any mission was not flying over Germany, with flak and being hit by fighters. It was literally taking off in peace soup weather, British mornings and spending up to two hours, just to form up with their other thousand planes, for they headed across the channel that was to them the scariest part of every mission. And the other thing that, that I was surprised at is of the gunners, we've talked to not one of them, not only not one of them ever shot down a German airplane and not one of them ever even hit a German airplane. Really? And, and you usually think in the movies, you sort of think that. They're blowing German fighters out of the sky. Right. And left now is an uncommon occurrence guns. We're almost a placebo, they were meant to keep the Germans away, but they rarely actually shot down German fighter didn't happen. What do you make these guys whenever we talked to these vets they always always say some sentiment of I was just doing my job. What do you make of that, right? They did these insane things. You know, flying on ten to fourteen our missions. And when they were peak out tude, it was as cold as standing on the top of Mount Everest primaries below zero with oxygen that would freeze up and bearskin expose so they could get frostbite within ten minutes. Dodging, flack dodging, German fighters and then landing, and then turning around and doing it the next day, and the next day and the next day until they got their twenty five missions or their thirty five missions because they kept up being the total is the thing proceeded. It's the end to them. They were just doing their jobs and they were doing their jobs for their buddies. You know, they really do it's a cliche, but the band of brothers all of the guys, we talked to said it was, you know, we did it for each other. We didn't. Yes or no, sir. The officers we were self contained unit. And we looked out for each other, they didn't want to let. They're buddies down. So there storyteller, obviously, what, why can you speak to their humility, because if, if I did what you just described would be screaming from the rooftops telling everyone who could listen. But even if they didn't well after the war because so many people did it, I think it was a different culture. And then many of them have almost all of them have their, their man cave, war room, or they have their memorabilia, and they go to they've stayed in touch with their crew, and their their units, and we had the privilege of showing the poll blue at the air force reunion in Ohio, last October and giving got gave the guys the chance to see the film, and they were all gathered together. They talk to each other because I think a lot of it is no one understands it's hard to convey to people what they went through. And in some ways, I don't think people believe them, which is why again, we wanted wanted to create the cold blue. Because this reminds people, very vividly, what they went through, and it's hopefully for the ages, you know, William Wyler's Memphis Belle, which was made in forty three and released in forty four was the propaganda film, that had a different agenda and the cold blue isn't about justifying isn't made to justify the strategic bombing effort into show how we're knocking the crowds back, which is the point of the cold blue. This is just simply memorialize, the experience just to say this is what they did. This is how they did it. This is what they've felt like this is the experience. It's a it's a different. We're hunting different game than the average World War Two documentary. Really good. So can we talk for a second about the technical aspects? So how did you explain the process of putting all this together in this work of art? Well, the, the first step was locating the fifteen hours of raw footage from the Memphis, Belle wiler used thirty eight minutes of that footage in the Memphis Belle, and there was another fourteen hours of footage. He didn't use just to make that discovery was a starting point. Then we said your verdict to. You said you define the footage where we transferred it to digital. Am I losing it? Can you hear me? I'm sorry. Can you hear me? Yeah. We transferred it to ditch. Digital. Yeah. Houses that you had to you said you had to find the footage where where it was. It was did we not know the national archives? It was hiding in plain sight in the national archives after the war just at the archives is a repository for every bit of footage that was shot and somehow these thirty four reels totalling fifteen hours survived for seventy five years. Wow. It those reels. And then we transferred them to, to four k digital which allowed us to blow it up and work with the material, we then cut the cold blue. And then once we had our cut we went back and restored every frame, and removed or artifacts scratches that Wyler it accidentally put in the footage back and forty three which are part of every version of the Memphis Belle, we removed those so we brought the footage to look, crystal clear, crystal clear. It looks like it was shot yesterday. How time consuming is the does that process the restoring process? That took about to crawl over the footage took about four months to do. Seventy two minutes of to do about an hour. So four months to do an hour footage. So I'm not insanely long. But you know it took it took it was. And then we also had to remember he shot the footage silent. There's was shot MOS mid out sound..

And you described it very, well, obviously, Matthew Stafford sold the path and knew he was gonna run it all along they get the first down on the fourth and one another lions went down to the Vikings twenty six yard line. So they're they're seven twenty seven to go in the second. Minnesota's twenty seven the lions are fairly seventy three and again Murray Minnesota in this game and that freighter thirty five yard field goal or Detroit. Now, remember the lions have never lost US Bank stadium. So this has been a friendly venue so far in their two previous trips. Once again, seven zero four to go in the second on the move Vikings leading seventy three here in Minneapolis. So the gutsy call on fourth and one keeps the drive alive and the lions trying to get something going as they trailed by a score of seven to three. And now have a second and five situation trailing by four just seven minutes gone by in the first. Second quarter of this one in Stafford. Now completes at inside the fifteen down to the eleven yard line and Kenny golladay. So they tried to golden Tate earlier in the week. One reason why the emergence of golladay who has been so good. And they think that he's going to be a much bigger playmaker for them going forward. Then he comes up with a big reception there. So first and ten from the eleven yard line now for the lions who are threatening the dolphins. Get a forty three yard field goal from Jason Sanders dig a three nothing lead over the jets. Sam darnold so far completed as I four passes as fifth wasn't interception. So Kiko Alonzo picking off the rookie out of USC. Jason sanders.

"Well, you know. In order to really like cement yourself, you, you've gotta. You've gotta get there couple times, so he's he's still got something to prove. Yeah, I guess also just between like all of the spin offs and USA versus the world and stuff like we know Shawn's. Good. Yes, nNcholas cool. Ridge is the second fastest finisher of the night happy to see nNcholas doing well, I believe. I think he was montage again. I think that's just a thing that happens with him. NNcholas Instagram is in credible. He and his girlfriend question Mark. Do like the most incredible accurate yoga Versi and. That's all I have to say about nNcholas corrige, Josh Levin with who I believe it was also a montage montage. Obviously, third time does very well here, Kevin bull fourth-best time as finisher see it. Look, there's so many finishers is it's supposed to be for c. falls. Kevin bulldozer has has a good run here. This was also a really stacked episode. It was. These are. These are all Sean Brian, nNcholas Kluge, Josh Levin, Kevin bull. All great. And then we're going to there's even more we got Brian Rambo, a newer addition. He was in fifth place there. I think he was the urban former. Oh, I think I, yeah. Mixed feelings. Then Adam rail in sixth flip Rodriguez here in seventh, David Campbell with the city finals, finish very happy to see David doing well there and Derek Miyamoto as I believe the eighth or ninth place finisher of channels cried watching Derek. MIR Moto finish. I don't know why it just for some ways then like he was really emotional. I guess. I don't know that one got me. They. So those are the finishers. Then we had Spencer clap who failed who? Okay. There was one failure at the spider chop. It was Spencer clap. Okay. I don't think they even showed that. Thomas cough coffin failed at the baton pass along with Nick Hanson. The KOMO ninja Eric Nelson, oh, Nick Hanson had the like we're going to show his entire run, but it's during the commercial brace annoy like now I can't skip the commercials, which I know is the point. But it's so annoying. Also very strange because watching their runs during the commercial break is probably if you never go to a taping, the closest you'll ever get to the experience of watching taping of of these runs because there's no music, there's no commentary. You're just watching them and it's like it feels a lot more real. The most commercialized version. Of the thing. Yeah. Yeah. Whoever. Is trying out next year for American enjoy or make sure that your run is never exactly as long as the commercial break, they'll stick it in commercials. Yes. Then we had Eric Nelson Davin, handcocks, and Brian crutch manages to sneak in at fifteenth place who failed at the baton pass. And I do believe. Graham McCartney was sixteenth. I know at the very least they showed David Campbell after Sean Brian. Okay. Because I remember thinking like if our grant I would know that I was screwed if I still had like so many of these people to go after me. Yeah, you always hope. Yeah. Then the two women to qualify Tian awebber -ly sweet tea made it to the Thanh pass. So does pretty well. They're very, very good run from Tian. She finally made it past that fourth or fifth obstacle and managed to qualify as the top female athlete in Vegas for the finals. And then Anna shoemaker is d second female qualifier who failed at the giant cubes. Oh, all right. Those were wacky those look so hard. Well, nobody who failed at them qualified for her. And that was the finals. This is a good episode. I thought this is pretty good for definitely definitely stacked, but not with like this necessarily like the big superstars of the show. Yeah. And there were no like Jurassic Park crossovers this time? No, which is like. Then we had the Dallas finals where we had another some more new obstacles. The broken bridge is going to replace the tuning forks, and and then we had this this new obstacle, the mission impossible fallouts obstacle. Okay, this is I watch those literally yesterday and I already Dr remember it. Well, it reminds them of Tom Cruise in mission, impossible. Okay. In the episode I fell asleep during this won't you just said they didn't have a Jurassic Park crossover, and this is the episode where they have the mission impossible crossover. Oh, okay. Oh, yeah. No, okay..
