Footnotes of 9/11

CNN’s Drew Griffin conducted several interviews this week for CNN Presents: “Footnotes of 9/11,” an upcoming documentary which focuses on everyday citizens who went to work on September 11, 2001, unwittingly becoming part of history.

Eight of the people profiled by Griffin are mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report.  Their experiences are drawn from the 1,742 footnotes of the report, offering critical detail to the events of that day.

Griffin interviewed Michael Tuohey, a former U.S. Airways ticket agent who issued boarding passes to 9/11 terrorist Mohammad Atta, and Tim Duffy, a lieutenant colonel in the Massachusetts Air National Guard who scrambled to provide air defense to New York and faced the possibility of having to shoot down a passenger plane.

CNN Presents: “Footnotes of 9/11” will premiere on Tuesday September 6 at 11:00 pm ET, replaying on Sunday, September 11 at 8:00 pm ET.

    I accidently tuned into The Footnotes of 9/11 piece last night and what I saw was outstanding. I see that it isn't on our future listings but wondered if it will be added to CNN On Demand in the near future? I'd love to catch the full thing and share with others.

    This profile of the unsuspecting witnesses to 9/11 in Footnotes of 9/11 was extraordinary and captivating. I would like to order this one hour segment, if it is available, since it profiles citizens who suddenly are thrust into an historical event from which none of us will ever recover, in some ways. Please let me know if I can order it in DVD format and the cost to have it sent to me, along with the cost of the segment. Thank you for your coverage today. I couldn't pull myself away from the TV and CNN's coverage almost the entire day today.
