Publisher's Summary

Building demolition experts Stacey and Doug Loizeaux and remembering newspaper editor and anti-apartheid activist Donald Woods on this edition of Fresh Air. Stacey and Doug Loizeaux are niece and uncle and are part of the family-owned demolition company, Controlled Demolition, of Maryland. The buildings they've brought down include the Seattle Kingdome, the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas (which was brought down spectacularly with a fireworks display), and the bombed federal building in Oklahoma City. Doug's father pioneered the techniques of implosion nearly 60 years ago. Controlled Demolition holds a number of world records including tallest building brought down, and the most buildings felled simultaneously. And, Fresh Air remembers Donald Woods. His relationship with the slain black South African activist Steve Biko was dramatized in the 1987 film, Cry Freedom. He died yesterday in England, where he had lived for over 20 years. (Broadcast Dates: August 20, 2001 and September 2, 1987)
