What follows is a succession of "BREAKING NEWS" bulletins, as they happened live, beginning with WNYW-TV in New York. WNYW (Channel 5) was the first TV station in the world to interrupt their regular programming with the breaking news at 8:48 that morning, just two minutes after the impact. CNN's "breaking news" bulletin follows at 8:49, and so on. Included in this "BREAKING NEWS" segment are the original bulletins from WCBS-TV (Channel 2, New York), WNBC-TV (Channel 4, New York), WABC-TV (Channel 7, New York), Fox News Channel, WPIX-TV (Channel 11, New York), NY1 (New York One, All News), MSNBC, CBS News, ABC News and NBC News. (Also included in this segment, for the sake of completeness, is an original "breaking news" audio bulletin from a local NYC news radio station, WCBS-AM 880. Accompanying this audio-only clip is some generic "B-Roll" video footage from the streets of Manhattan that morning)

This is an exeprt from the DVD - "September 11, 2001 - As It Happened - A Composite."
