Over the next few weeks, TV network’s will broadcast a series of documentaries, films and news coverage to mark the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

On September 11, 2001, around 3,000 people died when four planes were hijacked and flew into the World Trade Center, the pentagon and a fourth plane crashed in a field in Somerset County, Pennsylvania in the worst terrorist attack in American history.

Tonight, Channel 4 explores the dramatic stories of individual firemen on September 11: the stories of those who died, those who survived and those who still bear the scars.

The hour-long documentary, named 9/11: The Firemen’s Story, tells the story of the close-knit brotherhood who call themselves ‘New York’s Bravest’, and shows how their bold tradition of rushing into the heart of skyscraper fires cost lives – but saved many more.
