As the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist atrocities was marked last September, In Debate discusses how that fateful day is being remembered (or not) on television a decade later. Documentaries re-remember events, news programmes debate the tragedy and television series/serials dialogue with what happened on 11 September 2001, and the four short essays discuss how television remains engaged in important mourning work.
