Documentaries reminiscent of the September 11 attacks


The lightness of Come From Away is an exception in the tribute to 20 years of terrorist attacks. Most channels and streaming platforms even bet on documentaries.

History alone, which has produced more than 70 hours of programming on the subject over these two decades, comes with five new features. Today, at 8:15 pm and 10:00 pm, respectively, the channel airs 9/11: Conspiracy Theories and 9/11: The Four Fatal Flights. Tomorrow at 7:45 pm, 9/11: Attack on the Pentagon. At 8:40 pm, it’s time for the World Trade Center: Before and After the Fall. And at 10:20 pm, History presents The Hunt for Bin Laden: The Mission Revealed, which had access to the 9/11 Museum archives and features interviews by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

“We live in a world where conspiracy theories come up more and more often, whether it’s about 9/11 or the covid,” said Clifford Chanin, executive vice president of the 9/11 Museum and producer of this latest show, in interview by videoconference. “So it’s up to all of us to tell the stories correctly to really show what happened, especially to young people.”
