Hindenburg Disaster 1937 Original footage from May 6, 1937 of the German zeppelin Hindenburg bursting into flames and crashing as it was preparing to land at Lakehurst Naval Base in New Jersey. This was the first major disaster captured on film as it happened. Remarkably, most of the people onboard survived. Of the 97 passesngers and crew, only 35 people perished. (One member of the ground crew was killed too.) The cause of the fire has never been determined. The Hindenburg was doomed once the fire started because it used highly flammable hydrogen as a lift gas. It only took 34 seconds for the ship to burn. This catastrophe effectively ended the era of zeppelin travel.

Last Passenger Pigeon 1914 The decline and extinction of the passenger pigeon is one of the saddest chapters in natural history. When Europeans first arrived in North America passenger pigeons thrived in the billions. In 1800 they were so plentiful that a pair could be bought for just two cents. They lived in enormous flocks that sometimes overspread 300 square miles. However, by the mid-1800s, loss of habitat and the demand for a cheap source of meat doomed the passenger pigeon to extinction. The last accepted wild passenger pigeon was spotted in 1900. The last passenger pigeon in captivity, a female named Martha, died in the Cincinnati Zoo on September 1, 1914.

Chepstow Caer Cymru If there is a castle that comes close to matching Harlech Castle in historical importance, that castle is surely Chepstow. Chepstow is a Norman castle perched high above the banks of the river Wye in southeast Wales. Construction began at Chepstow in 1067, less than a year after William the Conqueror was crowned King of England. It was his master castle builder in the person of his loyal Norman lord William FitzOsbern. FitzOsbern's fortresses were the vehicles from which the new king consolidated control of his newly conquered lands. Chepstow Castle became the key launching point for expeditions into Wales, expeditions that eventually subdued the rebellious population.

Bobbi Martin - For the Love of Him This topped the charts in 1970. Two years later Helen Reddy had the hit I Am Woman. This song would be doomed today.

Kodiak - Failed TV Drama Here's an ABC promotional clip for Kodiak, a new 30-minute 1974 police show set in Alaska. Kodiak starred Clint Walker as Cal (Kodiak) McKay of the Alaska State Patrol. Walker had seldom been seen on television since his days on the western Cheyenne, which ended in 1963. Kodiak was doomed as ABC slotted it against NBC's megahit Sanford and Son. Poor ratings caused its cancellation after just four weeks. Here's a tidbit of trivia: Kodiak was the show that replaced The Brady Bunch in ABC's 8 p.m. time slot on Fridays.

(Ghost) Riders in the Sky "(Ghost) Riders in the Sky: A Cowboy Legend" is a country and cowboy-style song. It was written on June 5, 1948 by Stan Jones. A number of versions were crossover hits on the pop charts in 1949. The ASCAP database lists the song as "Riders in the Sky" (title code: 480028324), but the title has been written as "Ghost Riders", "Ghost Riders in the Sky", and "A Cowboy Legend". [#2 country, #1 pop, 1949] Bucky Pizzarelli and Don Costa were on the original recording session in Chicago. The song tells a folk tale of a cowboy who has a vision of red-eyed, steel-hooved cattle thundering across the sky, being chased by the spirits of damned cowboys. One warns him that if he does not change his ways, he will be doomed to join them, forever "trying to catch the Devil's herd across these endless skies". Jones said that he had been told the story when he was 12 years old by an old cowboy friend. The story resembles the northern European mythic Wild Hunt. The melody is based on the song "When Johnny Comes Marching Home". According to Robby Krieger, it inspired the classic Doors song "Riders on the Storm". The song was also the inspiration for the Marvel Comics Western character "Ghost Rider" later renamed Phantom Rider (not to be confused with the later character named "Ghost Rider").

Watertight Smith William Alden Smith was a respected and capable career politician from Michigan who, unfortunately, became the subject of ridicule for one unfortunate public statement. Smith served in the Michigan House of Representatives, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the U.S. Senate. When the R.M.S. Titanic sank in 1912, Smith chaired the American investigation into the maritime tragedy. Although the inquiry was responsible for creating many improved international safety measures regarding oceanic shipping, Smith was widely mocked (especially in the British press) for asking why the passengers in the doomed ship didn't seek safety in the Titanic's watertight cabins. It was pointed out to Smith that the so-called watertight cabins were meant to keep the ship afloat, not to hold passengers. Furthermore, the cabins would have been no help to passengers as they sank with the rest of the Titanic. The British newspapers quickly nicknamed the distinguished senator 'Watertight' Smith.
