September 11, 2001

This is a lengthy video montage of the actual events of September 11, 2001 as they happened live on various television networks. I have embedded the first video and linked to the rest.

I, like all Americans, will never forget where I was and what I was doing when I first heard of these awful events. I know there are many, including some of my friends, that believe our own country plotted and carried out these attacks. I do not, and will never, believe that.

Other than that, I am posting this video montage without commentary.

September 11, 2011


Part 1 of 22 (Note: the breaking news of the attack on the first tower isn't mentioned until about 20 minutes into the video below)

YouTube description: This 22-part series includes more than 23 hours of live television news coverage from September 11, 2001.

Programming begins at 8:31 AM (Eastern Daylight Time), which was fifteen minutes before the first Boeing 767 crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City.

Parts 17-22 contain 12+ hours of live TV coverage that I recorded on VHS videotape, beginning at 10:54 AM EDT (9:54 AM Central Time) on September 11th, 2001.

My homemade recordings consist of footage from various local and network television outlets, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox News, Newsworld International, WGN in Chicago, and all of the local TV stations in Indianapolis, Indiana.

I was using the remote control a lot that day to switch back and forth between the different networks. Thus, the footage seen in Parts 17 through 20 is in "rough cut" form, appearing exactly the way I recorded the news coverage, as it was happening, on September 11th.

More details:

Parts 1-4: NBC-TV footage, beginning at 8:31 AM on 9/11/01.
Parts 5-8: CBS-TV footage, beginning at 8:31 AM on 9/11/01.
Parts 9-12: ABC-TV footage, beginning at 8:31 AM on 9/11/01.
Parts 13-16: CNN-TV footage, beginning at 8:48 AM on 9/11/01.
