My best answer - 

The intensifying screens are activated when exposed to -70C 
temperatures.  You DO NOT need two of them, just put one on one side of 
the gel, and a piece of film on the other side.  This procedure can be 
substituted for merely developing 32P gels at room temp., with no 
intensifying screen.  This may suffice if you have a screaming hot gel.  
INtensifying screens are good if you are looking for something barely 
there, or if you are using 35S.  Just remember, take the saran wrap OFF 
when exposing 35S gels!
