This two-hour special culls material from over 100 disparate sources – amateur videographers, raw network outtakes, emergency dispatches from the FDNY and NYPD, voicemail messages – and stitches them all together into a study of what happened in the 102 minutes between the first attack on the World Trade Center and the collapse of the second Tower.
The program aired for the first time this past Sept. 11 on History, without commercial interruption. And although this important documentary can be excruciating to watch, watch it we should, as it’s a testament to the bravery of those who lost everything trying to save others, and a spellbinding window into one of the most significant events of recent times.

Length: 1 x 120 minutes
Aired: September 11, 2008 (History)
