ABC, Smithsonian team up on 9/11 video

ABC -- which won a Peabody Award for its 9/11 coverage -- is teaming up with the
Smithsonian Institution to produce a five- to seven-minute video entitled September 11:
Bearing Witness to History (Sept. 11-Jan. 11, 2003)
for the National Museum
of American History's exhibit on the terrorist attacks.

According to ABC, the footage will include "video of anchor Peter Jennings
documenting his experience on that day" and "a montage of anchors and reporters
from across the United States."
