Greenlit: 9/11: The Fireman’s Story, Channel 4

9/11: The Fireman’s Story (1×60) – Documentary that explores the dramatic stories of individual firemen on that fateful day. The stories of those who died, those who survived and those who still bear the scars. Of the 2,752 people who died on 9/11, 343 were FDNY firemen – by far the greatest loss of life by any emergency service in the world in a single day. Only now, ten years on, are many of the firemen and their families able to speak about this for the first time. Their courage and sacrifice made them national heroes but in the 10 years since many have paid a terrible price for their bravery. But why is it that so many firemen died that day? And how many people did they actually save? And how did the FDNY’s extraordinary history, play such as decisive role in that day? This programme reveals, in their own words, the reality of what the fire fighters achieved that day and the price they have paid ever since.
