This hard-hitting special takes a new look at the terrorist attacks on the U.S. on September 11, 2001, by listening – with audio excerpts of cellphone calls between passengers on the hijacked planes and their loved ones, and radio transmissions between the cockpits and air traffic controllers, forming the foundation of the program.
