The History Channel original documentary presentation The Pentagon takes a penetrating look at the titular institution - that monolithic bastion of U.S. central intelligence and defense, as renowned for its architecture (it remains the largest office building in the modern world, employing 24,000 workers) as for the secrets and mysteries it houses. This fifty-minute film places a particularly strong emphasis on exploring the means of security imposed at this facility, and recounts the measures taken whenever a crisis arises, such as the 9/11 attacks; it also carefully details the renovations and reconstruction following that disaster. As a bonus, the film sports rare inside footage of the Pentagon and interviews with both political and military historians and employees.
