NatGeo airs updated "Inside 9/11" (based on 2005 film, includes May 1 action on OBL)
This evening (Sunday, Aug. 28), National Geographic aired most (3 hours)of its 2005 four-hour “Inside 9/11” series (directed by Mike Heasley), but revised in a number of places to account for the killing of Osama bin Laden on May 1 (or 2, depending on time zone), 2011. (This was in preparation to the new interview with former President Bush at 10 PM, discussed Aug. 26 on mu TV blog.)
The first two hours (“Zero Hour”) recreate in detail the morning of 9/11. One detail that is particularly interesting is that a student in a middle school told his teacher a week before that the World Trade Center towers would not be standing a week later. (The third hour is “The War Continues”.)
There are many details of heroism in how people were helped to escape from the towers on the morning of 9/11. The film also gives a lot of details of the Madrid (2004) and London (2005) attacks.
