Reflections: 25th Anniversary of the OKC Bombing

Educators, religious leaders and public officials reflect on the 25th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing in a documentary produced by The Oklahoman called "Reflections: 25th Anniversary of the OKC Bombing."

The 22-minute short film includes photos taken by The Oklahoman's photographers at the scene the day of the bombing, along with images captured through the years. It also features footage graciously provided by local NBC affiliate KFOR-TV and OETA, a PBS member TV station. 

Paige Dillard, video content manager and producer with The Oklahoman, wrote the storyline of "Reflections." She worked with fellow reporters to schedule and shoot interviews, and gathered footage and photos.

The documentary focuses on three groups: teachers who were in class on April 19, 1995, at nearby Emerson North, public officials who were at the scene and religious leaders who guided the community through and after the tragedy. Each reflected on the incident, how it impacted their lives and how they use that experience today.

On Sunday at 9 am, Oklahoman.com will have the pre-recorded Remembrance Ceremony for viewing. It will also be available on our social media channels.

The Oklahoman's reporters shared their memories of covering the bombing through four podcasts.
