The french TV showed the movie done by two young french reporters that were following the "coming of age" of a young fireman. One followed the brigade in Tower 1 the other was outside. What struck me is that shortly after the impact (they were just next door for some exercise) all the lobby glass panels were down... Witnessing thus the fact that the "hammer" effect was a severe one, the effect being mostly evident on the lobby part where the structure was held thightly by the concrete "basement" while the tower itself could ploy.

That movie followed with the collapse of tower2 while the camera was still in action in tower 1, you could hear and "feel" through the camera the final rumble.
I believe there was about 5hours of films taken, what was shown covers up about one hour I think the whole film should be accessible to research teams because it shows among breathtaking views, pieces of the structure while it was failing.

But then I believe it was shown in the States for the rememberance day...? (though it contains really very emotive and hard scenes).
