3. The World Trade Center: Rise and Fall of an American Icon
Original Airdate: September 2, 2002.

DVD product detail from the online A&E store:

There had never been a complex like it. There may never be again. For thirty years, the twin towers of the World Trade Center stood sentinel over downtown Manhattan. But they were toppled in the deadliest attack ever perpetrated on American soil, the opening salvo of the War on Terror.

This comprehensive, feature-length DVD tells the complete story of the World Trade Center, from the obstacles that the architects and engineers overcame in building the massive center to the daunting task of cleaning up the 16-acre disaster site after September 11th. Footage shows every aspect of the recovery work at Ground Zero, following US Army robots as they search for human remains wreckage and revealing how 2 million tons of debris were removed. Engineers detail what they discovered in their "autopsy" of the buildings, and we'll see how the disaster site was been transformed into sacred ground as the recovery work progressed.

Col. John O'Dowd of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Governor George Pataki, and Rudy Giuliani are among the many people interviewed for this unforgettable look at the WORLD TRADE CENTER: RISE AND FALL OF AN AMERICAN ICON.
