CNN to Rebroadcast Real-Time 9/11/01 Coverage

CNN is going to stream its real-time coverage from September 11, 2001 on the day’s 5th anniversary (next Monday).

As part of its coverage of the fifth anniversary of 9/11, CNN Pipeline will stream CNN’s television coverage of September 11, 2001, in real time, as the events of the day unfolded. The free replay on Monday will begin at 8:30 a.m. ET, minutes before the first plane hit the World Trade Center in New York.

I can’t imagine wanting to re-live that day, especially this soon. Still, this is a brilliant use of the archives and shows the potential of virtually unlimited bandwidth as broadband access becomes the norm.
