Peter Mansbridge Anchors Canadian Perspective Of Attacks During Daylong Remembering September 11 On CBC Television, CBC Newsworld

One year after the terrorist attacks that rocked the United States, the aftershocks of September 11 continue to reverberate around the world. And the changes they wrought continue to unfold. On this sombre anniversary, Wednesday, September 11, CBC Television and CBC Newsworld devote an entire day of programming to a CBC News Special entitled Remembering September 11. Anchored by CBC News Chief Correspondent Peter Mansbridge, Remembering September 11 is a commemoration of the attacks and a profound exploration from a Canadian perspective of the seemingly endless issues left in their wake.

As well, CBC Television and CBC Newsworld present unique 9/11 coverage on the eve of the anniversary, Tuesday, September 10, with the world premiere of a specially commissioned documentary entitled As the Towers Fell: The Story of Their Lives and a special edition of The National featuring a documentary by Carol Off about New York City in the days leading up to the anniversary. Produced by veteran Canadian journalist Desmond Smith, As the Towers Fell is the dramatic account of the first 24 hours from journalists in front of the cameras in New York and around the globe. Journalists including the CBC�s Peter Mansbridge and Michael Enright, Steve Evans, the BBC reporter at Ground Zero, Al Jazeera correspondent Chida Fakhry and CNN anchor Aaron Brown were the faces and voices of the tragedy for millions of viewers glued to their televisions throughout those first few hours. Looking back a year later at the broadcast images and reflecting on how the world is changed by these events, the journalists continue to shed light on the tragedy and its impact.

Remembering September 11 is a daylong dialogue among survivors, families of the victims, New Yorkers, Canadians, soldiers, politicians, experts, analysts and viewers. Peter Mansbridge anchors the special from the Canadian Broadcasting Centre in Toronto.
