In 2001 Belfield visited lower Mahatten shortly after the September 11th terrorist attacks to hear the real stories of New Yorkers following the atrocities at the Twin Towers.
On 11/9/2011 nearly 3,000 victims and the 19 hijackers died in the attacks.
In this exclusive 55 minute documentary, Alex talks to the Duchess of York who was due in the Twin Towers at the time of the attack but was delayed by a television interview.
Alex also talks to Ricki Lake who even 6 months later hadn’t recovered from seeing the whole disaster happen in front of her eyes from her lower Manhatten apartment.
Belfield speaks to firemen, policemen, Broadway Stars, relatives of the dead and ‘New York’s greatest ambassador ‘The Gabby Cabby’.
The programme was broadcast on nearly 20 radio stations in the UK and was singlehandedly presented and produced by Alex Belfield.
