"Jet fuel can't melt steel beams!!" Too bad that no-one made the claim, and the conspiracy nuts can't understand that there's a big difference between heating a metal to its melting point and heating a metal to a point where it becomes somewhat malleable and starts to sag under its own weight. This program does a very good job of explaining the mechanisms and physics that led to the structural failure of the towers, but unfortunately the people that most need to view this tend to be very resistant to empirical evidence and rational explanations.
