102 Minutes That Changed a Nation

Tonight the History Channel will show "102 Minutes that Changed America":

Discover rarely seen and heard archives that document the 102 minutes between the first attack on the World Trade Center to the collapse of the second tower. This commercial-free special uses unique material from sources ranging from amateur photography and video to FDNY, NYPD, Port Authority and emergency dispatch radio recordings, photography and video. Also seen is footage broadcast outside the US, electronic messages and voicemails and "outtakes" culled from raw network footage. Then, watch interviews with individuals who provided videos of the events of that day. The interviews with the filmmakers will provide context for the circumstances they were in, why they shot video, what the footage means to them, and where they were on that day.
Allapundit recommends watching early PBS "American Experience" footage of the construction of the World Trade Center as well.

There's lots of news and commentary on today's 9/11 anniversary, but check especially, Eamon Stewart's, "
9/11 is a Story of People."
