Remembering September 11th - BBC World's global coverage plans BBC World, the BBC's 24-hour international news and information television channel, will be providing extensive coverage from around the world to mark the first anniversary of the attacks on the US last September 11th.

Drawing on its unparalleled international network of correspondents and bureaux, BBC World will be anchoring the day's main news output from New York with Jane Hill and Kirsty Lang both live from 'Ground Zero'. Co-anchored news will come from Washington, the location of the BBC's largest foreign news bureau and site of one of the attacks last September, while Lyse Doucet will provide the local perspective from Kabul throughout the day.

BBC World will be using a network of correspondents to cover the ceremony, which will begin at 0846 at Ground Zero. The ceremony is set to last for 102 minutes, the exact length of time between the impact of the first plane and the collapse of the second tower.

BBC World will be providing a mix of September 11th - related news including coverage of live events, an interactive debate with viewers, the hard-hitting interview programmes etc.

Using the BBC's recently launched international-facing website www.bbcnews.com, viewers will be able to send in their comments and access in-depth analysis of the consequences of last year's attacks.

Where as CNN International launched an exclusive weeklong series of never-seen-before footage taken from multiple videotapes recovered from inside Afghanistan by CNN’s senior internationalcorrespondent Nic Robertson.

These tapes graphically reveal the expertise, resources and resolve of the Al Qaeda terrorist movement. The five installments of ‘Terror on Tape’ will air throughout the week and conclude with a CNN Special Report summarizing the series.

In many cases, the footage is the video version of discarded documents discovered by CNN’s Mike Boettcher last year in Afghanistan. Many of the documents and manuals included instructions on how to hijack and blow up airplanes, how to build bombs and how to explode trains, ships and other modes of transportation.

Each day CNN International will broadcast reports on these tapes together with further in-depth information on www.CNN.com/terrortapes
