September 11th attacks - 19 years ago

Can't remember anything of 9/11 coverage, but I can remember a little bit of 2 months and a day later (12th Nov). An American Airlines A300 crashed in New York which initially prompted fears of another terror attack. No CITV that day due to news coverage, at least not on the main channel.

There is a YT clip of BBC1 interrupting a programme mid-way through to go to News 24

And this clip from the start of a News 24 special on BBC1 with Gavin Esler and Michael Buerk

Whether this level of coverage would have been provided say three months earlier, I guess not?

ITV News

I've not seen the lunchtime bulletins this week, but whenever I see a weekend 9.25/lunchtime bulletin, ITV News/ITN do a very good job of fitting as much news as possible into a short slot. Not a waste of time IMO
