9/11 THE DAY THE WORLD CHANGED: 8-10 PM, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 11
“9/11 The Day the World Changed” takes viewers back to the morning of September 11, 2001 when attacks on the United States killed nearly 3,000 people from over 70 countries. The world watched in terror as hijacked passenger planes crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and an open field in Pennsylvania. This documentary reveals the decisive moments of 9/11. Going behind the scenes, it shows how the events unfurled in the aircraft, the offices, the bunkers and the military headquarters as the US President, his advisers, security services and the military tried to piece together what was happening, who was attacking America and what was going to happen next.
THE DEATH OF BIN LADEN: 10 – 10:30 PM, SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 11
“The Death of Bin Laden” shows how America tracked down and killed the world’s most wanted man – Osama Bin Laden, Al Qaeda’s leader and mastermind of the 9/11 attack. Despite the $25M bounty on his head, Bin Laden evaded the forces of the United States and its allies for almost a decade. From accounts of eyewitnesses, victims of Al Qaeda’s terror, and military and intelligence insiders, the documentary traces the events that led to the US Special Forces’ raid of the hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan where Bin Laden was killed last May 2, 2011.
