On Sept. 11, 2001, New York City’s mayor led a city struck by tragedy back from the brinkfrom the moment the worst terrorist attacks in U.S. history began. Intimately involved and personally vulnerable, Rudy Giuliani revisits the day he was confronted by the assault on U.S. territory. Having secured unique access, National Geographic takes Giuliani back to moments indelibly marked by horror and heroism the story of his personal campaign to save lives, build calm, maintain leadership, and restore hope to a fallen city.
With new interviews with the mayor, supported by reconstruction and news archives, Giuliani’s 9/11 re-creates one man’s personal journey through a day that changed the world.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
I remember watching the events unfolding on 911. As I watched the second plane hitting the World Trade Center, I remember turning to my husband and saying, "Where's the Mayor?" Guiliani was a vibrant presence in every emergency, so as time passed, my feelings went back and forth from worry to annoyance that the mayor had not appeared before the cameras. This DVD finally answers all my questions. He and all those with him made their way back to the family of New Yorkers to give us courage, calm and stability. I will never forget how much we needed him. Thank you, Nat Geo, for telling his story - our story. I feel this DVD is a must to keep for future generations.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
