McIlwaine Hall at Hampden-Sydney College burned on March 29, 1957. Dr. Graves H. Thompson (HSC '27) filmed the event while two students, Bernard Bangley (HSC '57) and Randolph Gregg (HSC '57) recorded audio in the style of a theoretical radio broadcast. The video and audio were combined by Brian Burns of Hampden-Sydney's Bortz Library to give a greater sense of presence for the audience.

McIlwaine Hall was being used by the College at the time of the fire and no one was injured. Before the fire, students had unsuccessfully petitioned to have the building torn down and they cheered as the flames lit the night sky.
