Global producer-distributor Off the Fence (OTF) has acquired a BBC in-house documentary about twins affected by the attacks on the World Trade Center, and a Chilean miners doc from Passion Productions.

Twins of the Twin Towers (1 x 60 minutes) tells the stories of twins whose lives were forever changed by the events of the terror attacks on September 11, 2001.

Meanwhile, The Chilean 33 (1 x 60 minutes, pictured above) documents the ordeal of the 33 Chilean miners trapped in a mine from early August to mid-October 2010, shining the spotlight on evidence that suggests negligence may have helped cause the disaster.

The recent acquisitions join OTF’s catalog of more than 4,500 hours of factual content.
