11 September (Part 1) - Twenty years on

Where were you on 9/11If everyone is going to play this game then so will I.

I had been asked by Sony’s Broadcast Division to install a video editing suite for an internet start up company in North Audley Street. The top floor window looked down on Grosvenor Square which at that time was the address of the American Embassy.

I had been working alone all day and then one of the bosses came up to tell me that an aeroplane had flown into the World Trade Center. I imagined a Cessna or something similar having come a cropper.

It was only when I went downstairs to look at the TV that I realised the situation was rather worse than that.

I felt more than a little vulnerable working next door to the Embassy and was glad to get away.
