Colorado Judicial Building implosion: Watch it forward, backward, in slow-mo

Buildings in Denver don't implode every day -- so Channel 31 got every inch of mileage possible out of yesterday's demolition of the Colorado Judicial Building, leveled to make room for the new Ralph L. Carr Judicial Complex. Look below to see four separate clips: a full report, followed by the implosion in real time, in reverse, and in slow motion. That's bang for your buck!
