Watch CBS Documentary On Fdny?

Mon Mar 11, 2002 12:21 pm

I just finished watching the 9.11 portion of the documentary. Very moving. Much respect to all firefighters for all their great work. I priase CBS for not ruining the show by cutting to commercials during 9.11 portion.

Excellent. The documentary gave me a new perspective about 9/11. It really opened my eyes, and gave a view from someone who was actually there, rather than just hearing it and watching it on the news. I have a new respect for the FDNY as well as others for helping on 9/11. Very touching.

Nevermind... I executed a 90-second (er, 10 second) search on the CBS website. Starts at nine.

Wow, I just finished watching it as well. How very poignant, especially the photo montage at the end of all the firefighters who perished in the line of duty. I hope that it serves as a reminder of how many good people died that day. Already I see signs of callousness, especially at this forum, concerning 9/11. We must never forget...and others need a huge lesson in sensitivity and respect.

Just finished watching it too, and I can't imagine the horror these people had to go through. The images were just mind boggling it almost brought me to tears. We have to thank God for giving them the strengh and courage to be able to face what the faced. MUCH LOVE AND RESPECT TO ALL PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICIALS WHO SOMETIMES PUT THEIR LIVE ON LINE FOR OUR SAFTEY.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Very moving, especially the segment on Fr. Judd's death-I never knew he was the first casualty. Excellent work by the French brothers, they seem very humble.

The parts of that documentary that will haunt me is the crash of the bodies hitting the roof as the firefighters were inside Building 2-I'll bet some of them still have nightmares about that alone.

The other part was when they had the camera on Chief Pfeifer, and he's about to say something on the radio, and you hear the rumbling of the building falling down, and the realization that cemented on his face-riveting.

To work under such conditions is heroic, I don't care what anyone said. I couldn't imagine-even after seeing that footage, what it must have been like.

And France, those brothers are two outstanding, courageous young men. God Bless 'em.

Our local current affairs program showed a bit of it on TV tonight. I hope we get to see the entire program here in Australia.

I watched it and it was very sad  Crying . The sad part was when the Priest was shown in the lobby alive then a couple of minutes later dead. VERY SAD!!! I will always remember 9/11 as the saddest day in my life and the first day of my high school career.

It was riveting, the best thing I have ever seen on television. Surely CBS will repeat the broadcast?

BTW - Someone said Fr. Judd...

It's father Judge... he was "stationed" at the fire house very close to me...

It was a great documentary

Regarding Father Judge: I go to a parochial school in Boston, and one of my teacher's who I consider a friend was very close friends with Father Mychal Judge. When the photo of him being carried out by the firefighters was shown on every paper all he could say was "It looks so much like him...I just can't tell". Of course, he later found out it was him. There's no words to express the shock.

A controversy in Boston, a city so affected by the 11 September attacks (not only because of our proximity, but because the two planes departed from BOS) a debate has raged for about a week as to whether this program is appropriate or whether it is just going to fuel our lust to see more of this. A lot of people in Boston say that it's just too soon to be showing this...that unlike showing a program about the Holocaust or some other awful historical event is that 50 years has passed since the Holocaust, whereas today we only mark 6 months. I knew all along that I was going to watch, but prior to doing so I wondered if I was being inconsiderate to all the local families that lost loved ones in 11 September. In the end, I'm glad I watched it. It provided a view into what those final moments of confusion and chaos were really like. I now don't think I'll be able to get the noise of the bodies hitting the ground out of my head now.

It was beautifully done, and I only wish now I had taped it!

Yes, I was wondering if they will replay it as well. I didn't see anything in TVGuide about it, nor on the CBS website. So I have a feeling it was a one-time thing.  Sad
