Yes, I do agree.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/16/07 - 11:48:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think anyone is going to forget it in a hurry, but the fall of the berlin wall has to be a close second.

Yeah I'd say so for sure. Never seen anything like that and I was watching it live down here. The Vietnam war scene of the young girl running naked covered in napalm is another powerful depiction, but pales into comparison when seeing the planes fly into those gigantic buildings, then seeing them fall to the ground. No one who saw it will forget it.

Yeah. It's also more recent and a lot more people have televisions now, then say, when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon.

I would hesitate to agree.

When it actually happened there were nopt that many people watching it on TV.

It might be memorable footage but not a memorable moment.

It's funny how the link quotes a British survey.

To me one of the most memorable TV moments on British TV was when the SAS stormed the Iranian Embassy... not some comedy sketch by Monty Python or The Two Ronnies.. that didn't get a mention.

I guess people have short memories.

14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 10/23/07 - 1:00:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope- the landing on the moon was.

It is memborable for all the wrong reasons. I doubt many people would chose to remember due to the horror associated with it. I tend to agree with boredofu when he says it's memorable footage. Perhaps the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth or the Moon Landing attracted a wider audience. Charles and Diana's Wedding. Live coverage from the Gulf War.

How could it not be?
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 10/24/07 - 12:08:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
It doesn't even come close to that TV episode where Fonzie jumps over a shark...

14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 10/24/07 - 12:22:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes it is one of the most momorible thing idk and ill never forget it i was in school and my teacher was crying they turned on the school tvs and every thing and eveyone says was did not even got to the moon and it was just them filming in studio
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 10/24/07 - 3:18:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, it was horrible. Very horribly intense.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 10/24/07 - 4:06:17 AM EST (GMT-5)
For me it was very memorable. I remember everything about that morning.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/12/07 - 6:17:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
For me it is, but I'm young and many memorable things have yet to occur in my life.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/12/07 - 7:48:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
No. I had to sit at my desk and watch it happen in front of me.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 11/13/07 - 10:04:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
Definatley, but among many others. I remember watching it on TV as the second plane hit.

I was watching it live on tv when the second plane hit. It was pretty memorable.

I'd prefer to call it infamous. I remember walking into class and thinking it was a movie, until the teacher said it was live TV. And then they dropped. It was horrible.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 11/17/07 - 2:47:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I do.
But for all the wrong reasons.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 11/17/07 - 4:34:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
At least as memorable as the Hindenburg.
14 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 11/17/07 - 4:48:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
F*ck Off!

What about Fawlty Towers?

14 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 12/31/07 - 1:56:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
No.

I had a birthday about two months ago. Personally, I see that as being more important.

Sure, whether people care or not, the tragic day should be remembered.
