Fermilab on Film

Here's a very good preview on the upcoming PBS's Independent Lens "The Atom Smashers". It is scheduled to start premiering on PBS stations in the US on Nov. 25, 2008 (today).

The documentary focuses on the period between early 2006 and late 2007, and there is plenty of material for filmmakers Clayton Brown, Monica Long Ross and Andrew Suprenant to explore here. Over the course of the film, scientific enthusiasm collides with sharp budget cuts and promising results that don’t pan out — all while a neon “doomsday clock” marking the days, hours and minutes to LHC’s first collisions ticks down in the background.

Certainly something to look out for.
