Orange Television Network to air original documentary on Pan Am 103 during Remembrance Week
Orange Television Network (OTN), Syracuse University’s student-produced cable television station, will show its original documentary “Remembering Pan Am 103” nightly Monday through Friday, Nov. 9-13, during Remembrance Week.
The 30-minute special can be seen each night at 8 p.m. on campus cable Channel 2.
The documentary was produced in memory of the 35 SU students who died aboard Pan Am Flight 103 when it exploded over Lockerbie, Scotland, on Dec. 21, 1988. The students were returning to the United States for the holidays after a semester of studying abroad. The program is dedicated to these students and all 270 men, women and children who died in the terrorist attack.
OTN offers an emotional outlook on the tragedy, speaking with students, faculty and staff who knew the SU passengers on Flight 103 and who candidly tell of the times spent with those who died and the lives they led.
“Remembering Pan Am 103” was produced by Torie Wells, with videographers Mike Eassa and Vin Nucatola.
