As a part of its plan to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the attacks of September 11, History announced today a new 30-minute commercial-free special to air on its cable and satellite H2 channel. 9/11: Relics From The Wreckage documents the stories of five objects to be placed in the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in NYC. Specifically, the special examines how the pieces were chosen and what they stand for. 9/11: Relics From The Wreckage evolved out of the long-term relationship that parent company A+E Networks has with the Museum. As well as this new special, History also said Friday that it plans to honor next Wednesday’s anniversary with a heavy slate of encore 9/11 related programming such as 102 Minutes That Changed America on History itself and 9/11 State Of Emergency on H2.
Animal Planet already revealed earlier this summer that it had acquired the one-hour The Hero Dogs Of 9/11 to air on the anniversary. The special first ran on Animal Planet in Canada back in 2011 to mark the attack’s 10th anniversary. We will update as additional 9/11 commemorate programming from the networks and others is announced.
