UK commercial broadcaster ITV and French pubcaster France Télévisions have commissioned a feature-length documentary about the 9/11 terrorist attacks from Zinc Media Group’s factual prodco Brook Lapping.

9/11: We Have Some Planes (working title) will feature previously unheard audio and unseen images from the attacks on the US on September 11, 2001, including personal stories told by the people in New York at the time.

The 90-minute feature also explores how the authorities reacted, coped and tried to regain some semblance of control over the events, using recordings from military command centres, frontline emergency services, government conference calls, air traffic control, commercial airlines, private phone calls and public broadcasts.

Exec producing for Brook Lapping are Greg Sanderson, interim MD of Zinc Television London, and Karen Edwards, exec producer at Zinc Media Group. BBC Studios is distributing internationally.

“Now, with access to hundreds of hours of unheard footage and audio, which was previously locked in archives under great security, we can help paint a fuller picture of that historic day,” said Sanderson.

“Bringing all this audio content together has been a massive undertaking, but we hope that, in doing so, we are creating an important new record of the events.”

ITV previously worked with Brook Lapping on documentary 9/11: The Day that Changed the World, which aired 10 years after the 2001 attack.
