This was a subject of discussion even during the race. We'd see things that seemed controversial or difficult to understand, and chat about how to relate the story to someone who wasn't there.
Ted was always steadfast in saying he'd just tell what he saw, and not get into speculation. At first I thought maybe he'd be leaving some interesting meat on the bone, but the more I thought about it, and especially now seeing the finished product, he was exactly right to do that. It would only have distracted from what is so real about the event.
