Winner 2009 Emmy, Best Non-Fiction Special

It's 102 minutes the world will never forget - that's how much time passed between the first plane that crashed into the World Trade Center and the collapse of the second tower, on Sept. 11, 2001. A new historical record is emerging from personal footage, photography and audio captured by survivors and onlookers near the scene.

102 Minutes that Changed the World is a two-hour documentary that provides a rare and intensely personal look at the world-changing events that took place on Sept. 11. This unique documentary carefully pieces together personal footage and audiotape from amateur photography and videos, New York police and emergency dispatch radio recordings, voicemails, audio/video diaries, and outtakes culled from raw television network footage, to create a seamless historical record of those 102 minutes. The result is an evocative memorial to the 2,603 lives lost and a reminder of just how much our world has changed since that tragic day.

This documentary faithfully records and captures the horrific morning as it happened and the way it was experienced-from people's initial bewilderment that a plane could slam into these iconic skyscrapers on such a clear, sunny day, to the sudden, awful recognition that America was under attack. Many have said that society must never forget what happened on Sept. 11. 102 Minutes that Changed the World is an unprecedented attempt to capture the experience of that morning and preserve it as authentically as possible for future generations.

102 Minutes that Changed the World was produced by Nicole Rittenmeyer and edited by Seth Skundrick for A&E History Channel in the U.S.
