New "9/11 The Heartland Tapes" depicts America's realization of Jihadist war inside heartland. Airs Sept 8th-11th on the Smithsonian Channel
Across America, the morning of September 11, 2001 began routinely, with news and radio broadcasts sharing local human interest stories and traffic reports. But by 9:00 AM, the day's narrative had taken a tragic turn. Most of us are familiar with the national news coverage of 9/11, but the local reporting from TV and radio affiliates across the nation was no less important and no less compelling. "9/11- The Heartland Tapes" is an account of the tragedy as it unfolded, and as it aired in American cities large and small, told without narration or interviews.
DemoCast caught-up with Executive Producer Tom Jennings following his panel at the Society for Professional Journalists conference in Anaheim in August.
Consulting producer, Liza Maddrey, discusses the need for this documentary, a dozen years after the event.
The Smithsonian Channel will air the documentary on (all times ET / PT): SUNDAY 09/08 8:00pm; MONDAY 9/09 12:00am; and WEDNESDAY 09/11 7:00am.
