9/11: The twin Towers

On BBC1 now.

Quite harrowing. It's the first time I've seen some of the footage in almost 5 years. One guy watched as the plane hit Tower 2 from his office window, the impact looked at what seemed like just a few metres away. The English lady from Hayling Island organising a meeting on one of the top floors, who never made it out. The guy who stayed with a older gentleman who he had never even seen before, as the older guy sat on the stairs exhausted. They never made it out.

There must be 1000's of untold stories and acts of heroism from this one disaster.

It's an impressive programme.

The guy whose colleagues wouldn't listen to him and went up (and died) while he found and saved the guy that EM referred to above who witnessed the second plane hitting the second tower.

And the incomptence of the CIA ... nothing new but as ever revealing the sheer ineptitude of that organisation.

And worse, the authorities in the second tower who turned back people trying to leave the building .... the fire escapes that lead to dead ends ... the obvious lack of evacuation drills ... the waste of human life ... awful

Good programme. Not too sensationalist. A bit dramatic, but that is natural for any such programme.

Not watching the programme but I remember the event well. We were packing to go on holiday and at lunchtime on the 11th Mrs WSE said 'I'll just see if anything exciting is happening' as she switched on the TV! One picture sticks in my mind and always will. It was on the front page of the Mirror and depicts a young fireman heading to his death as he starts up the stairs of one of the burning Towers as everyone else heads down to safety.

I guess it's inevitable coming up to the 5th anniversay that there are programmes like this on TV, not sure if it shows anything new about that day - which funny enough was one of the happiest of my life as it coincided with the birth of my only son Harry.

So far its a very good programme, its very touching in places, as someone who has been up the towers on a few occasions I find the whole thing compelling, and still to this day, extrodinary.

A well produced docu-drama which gives a human touch to an event that is still very difficult to comprehend, even after 5 years.

I remember watching it unfold on the BBC website at work. I was obviously horrified at what I was witnessing but also appalled at the reactions of some of my colleagues - all they were concerned about was what effect it was having on their shares.

I was working in the Palace club shop at Selhurst at the time.

Remember watching it all there.

Still brings a lump to my throat watching it again now.

Robert Eaton RIP

Robert Eaton, a lifelong Brighton and Hove Albion fan tragically lost his life in the disaster. Rob was a regular user of North Stand Chat, and Albion supporters and NSC Users decided to set up the fund in his memory, raising money for disadvantaged young people in the UK and abroad who wish to play football, but find it difficult to do so without help.

The Robert Eaton Memorial Fund has raised over 40,000 so far, and bought kit and equipment for Los Peladitos, a youth football team in Rob Eaton's adopted city of New York and youth football teams in Sussex and Croydon

I flew out of Logan (Boston) a few days before. Security was non existent: I checked in early, passed through but was called back to the check in desk about an hour later. No one checked my credentials on the way back or when I returned.

Watching those guys walk through with 4 inch knives (only 6 inch + knives were prohibited) leaves you incredulous. And that 8 out of them were on a wanted list. Sheer f*cking incomptence by the world leaders in making money, the world leaders in capitalist stupidity.
