Dear FOS11 Members,

Below, please find a request from Darlow Smithson Productions based in London, England. Darlow Smithson is working with the National Geographic channel to develop a documentary titled, Seconds From Disaster Season 4.


I am researching a documentary series for National Geographic, and I am hoping to speak with families and survivors from September 11th; to possibly feature in the programme we are making. The series has been commissioned, and is likely to be broadcast around the spring/summer of next year; under the series title: Seconds from Disaster.

I would love to hear from some of your members, including survivors from inside the towers, and from the WTC complex, as well as emergency responders that were there when the towers fell. Please find my contact details listed below, I imagine email would probably be the best way for communicating to start with. If there were any other details that you needed, please let me know and I will be happy to provide them for you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
