Henninger Productions to Showcase 40th Anniversary Cuban Missile Doc Hosted by Tom Clancy At NATPE 2002

(January 22, 2002)
Henninger Productions, the production and programming arm of Henninger Media Services, will feature a new historical documentary at NATPE 2002, January 21-24 in Las Vegas called DEFCON-2.

Henninger Productions is exhibiting at NATPE booth # 4201.

Coming off its recent success with its four hours ratings winner "GOLD!" for The History Channel, Henninger Productions is bringing "DEFCON-2," hosted by internationally acclaimed writer Tom Clancy, to NATPE. "DEFCON 2"is an hour-long program that traces the history of the Cuban Missile Crisis from the perspective of those who were on its front lines. Clancy, in a rare television appearance, provides an on-camera contribution of his own insights into this defining moment in world history.

Only once during the 45-year long Cold War did the United States and the Soviet Union come within a breath of total nuclear war - during the Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962. For the U.S., the preparations reached "DEFCON-2", the highest state of U.S. military readiness short of war. The Soviet military was also brought to this unprecedented state of combat alert. "DEFCON-2" commemorates the 40th anniversary of the Crisis.

"Investigating momentous historical events can prove to be a valuable tool for gaining insight into current events," said Brian J. Kelly, executive producer, Henninger Productions. "This documentary goes back in time to investigate the only event in history that moved mankind to the brink of total destruction with hundreds of millions of lives held in the balance. This subject remains highly relevant in today's tense international environment."

Henninger Production is a division of Henninger Media Services (, one of the nation's largest video, film and new media service providers.
