9/11 - The Filmmakers' Commemorative Edition

We watched this program when it was originally broadcast on CBS in March 2002. It is an extraordinarily powerful one-of-a-kind documentary that starts out as a portrait of a rookie firefighter in NYC. By the time filming was finished, the filmmakers had captured history in the making, including the only image of the first jetliner striking Tower 1, and the only footage from within the tower as it collapsed. With cameras rolling, the filmmakers followed NYC firefighters into the heart of what would be known as Ground Zero. What emerged is a stirring tribute to real-life heroes who, in their city's darkest hour, rose to extraordinary acts of courage and compassion.

Have you often wished you could return to the land of your Irish ancestors and learn all about your personal heritage? Now you can accompany five Irish-Americans who return to their ancestral homeland on a genealogical adventure, in search of their roots and their traditions. Irish Homecoming is a moving film that captures the essence of what it means to be Irish. As an added bonus, the film includes beautiful footage of the Irish countryside as well as the music of Clannad, Brian Kennedy and Maura O'Connell.

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge, Co. Antrim

This unique span links the tiny island of Carrick-a-Rede with the dramatic Giant’s Causeway coast. The name means ‘the rock in the road’ and refers to the sea route salmon use to migrate to home waters. Hundreds of years ago, while there was plenty of fish to catch, casting a net from a boat was perilous due to rough seas and rocky shores. The solution was a simple rope bridge built by local fishermen. Once a single-railed bridge with wide gaps between the slats, it is now double-railed gapless. However, crossing the bridge is not for the faint-hearted. Downwards is an 80-foot panorama of sand, sea and surf. If you can’t walk, across, there’s a special platform which also affords spectacular views.
