Thirteen years after the terrorist attacks, U.S. net History is set to debut Marcus Robinson’s documentary Rebuilding the World Trade Center (pictured) on September 11.

The Irish director began work on the doc – produced by All3Media Group-owned Lion Television – in 2006, when he placed 13 cameras throughout the World Trade Center site in order to document the eight years of rebuilding through time-lapse imagery.

The two-hour special outlines everything from the laying of the first foundation to the topping of the new, 104-story One World Trade Center with its spire, in addition to profiles of various construction workers.

Executive producers for History are Susan Werbe, Molly Thompson and Dirk Hoogstra. Lion’s Nick Catliff also serves as executive producer.

Rebuilding the World Trade Center debuts on September 11 at 6 p.m. EST/PST.
