Tube Notes

Tonight's Must-See

"Investigative Reports: Anatomy of September 11th," 6 and 10 p.m., A&E. Linking with the New York Times, this report offers feel-good stories of survival and harsher views of mistakes that were made. One mistake, it says, was using a cheap, spray-on fire retardant. It was blown off by the blast. Another involved communication equipment that often failed inside the towers. Many firefighters never responded when told to get out. Far more dramatic is the story of one man from the second tower. He was almost out of the building when he was told to go back to his office to avoid falling debris. He did, but then was trapped in rubble after the second plane smashed into the building. A stranger somehow found him and guided him to safety.

"P.O.V.: Afghanistan Year 1380," 10 p.m., PBS. This follows two women as they treat people wounded during the fighting that followed Sept. 11.
