A Heartfelt Tribute to the events of September 11th 2001, from the people who reported it at CNN News
Thirty years ago, 909 Americans were led to their death by the Rev. Jim Jones in a mass murder-and-suicide pact in a South American jungle, shortly after Jones' gunmen killed a visiting U.S. congressman and four others at a nearby air strip. Of the nearly 1,000 church members who began the day in Jonestown that morning, only 33 survived to see the next day. They lived through that day and night only by unfathomable courage, rooted in desperation and daring. And even 30 years later, many still feel the pain and the loss of those they had to leave behind. CNN's Soledad O'Brien tells their story in this prime-time special.

CNN Presents is an American documentary program on CNN weekends. The program used to be replaced with CNN Special Investigations Unit, which features the same documentary format, but differs from it in a number of ways and is shorter in length. The program was originally a regular weekly series that looks in-depth in the important news stories of the times. More recently, it became a "special event" documentary that airs every time a larger, more long-term special report went into making. Notably, the program has been a winner of a number of different awards, including the International Documentary Association Best Documentary Series award. Previous to his departure from CNN, Presents was hosted and narrated by Aaron Brown. While CNN Presents was broadcast on the network, a specialized CNN Presents logo was shown in the corner without the news ticker on the screen. CNN Presents has been revived since its presentation of God's Warriors by Christiane Amanpour in August 2007, and later with Planet in Peril, Black in America, and Latino in America, all of which have received follow-up documentaries later on. In July 2011, the format of CNN Presents changed to a series of three investigative reports aired together in a one hour documentary, instead of a documentary about a single topic.
CNN Newsroom is an American news program on CNN/US. Broadcasting throughout the week, Newsroom features live and taped news reports, in addition to analysis from experts on the issues being covered, and headlines throughout each hour. The program tends to focus on softer news than their hard news primetime lineup. The program is the standard "brand" for general rolling-news programming for the network, originating from their headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. It debuted in September 2006 replacing CNN Live Today, Live From, CNN Saturday, CNN Saturday Night, CNN Sunday and CNN Sunday Night. CNN Newsroom airs continuously for seven hours starting from 9:00am ET until 4:00pm ET on weekdays and since the start of September 2008, the program has employed a single-presenter format on such days. On weekends, it airs at various times with late-night editions. The program shares the same name of an earlier CNN program, debuted in 1989, that was shown commercial-free by teachers in schools. On June 18, 2012, CNN introduced, Newsroom International presented by Suzanne Malveaux. This hour-long block of news focuses on news across the globe. The show is based from CNN's World Headquarters in Atlanta. On February 25, 2013, Newsroom International was changed to Around the World.
CNN Millennium was a 10-part series on human history from the 11th to the 20th centuries. The series represents perhaps the most ambitious undertaking to date by the network, presenting a global view of the human journey of exploration, creative spirit and intellectual achievements, as well as setbacks. The Millennium series should not be confused with the CNN Millennium 2000 DVD, which documents the celebrations around the world to greet the arrival of the year 2000. Also, the science fiction series Millennium does not relate to the CNN Millennium series in any way, save for the similarity in name. CNN Millennium originally aired between October and December 1999 at 10 p.m. on Sundays. Sir Jeremy Isaacs, award-winning filmmaker of "The World at War" and CNN's "Cold War," and Pat Mitchell, president of CNN Productions and Time Inc. Television, served as executive producers. The CNN web site elaborates: Each of the 10 episodes of MILLENNIUM focuses on a single century, brought to life by five vignettes from five different locations worldwide. Inspired by Felipe Fernandez-Armesto's book, "Millennium," and filmed in 28 countries, the series is as geographically far-ranging as the world it covers. Its producers and crews spent more than two years and traveled 100,000 miles gathering footage. MILLENNIUM reconstructs the visual images of past ages using this footage, along with vivid re-enactments and computer-generated graphic animation. MILLENNIUM is peopled with the interesting and the provocative, among them: Native Americans who built canyon housing complexes and Ethiopians who carved churches from solid rock in the 12th century; Genghis Khan, whose 13th century Mongol warriors conquered and united central Asia; Timur, who rose from sheep-stealer to conqueror and expanded Islam's empire in the 14th century; Christopher Columbus, whose 15th century voyage changed the world; African slaves taken from their homeland to serve the Americas' new colonies in the 17th century; French explorers who endured the Arctic's cold in the 18th century; Charles Darwin, whose theories of evolution challenged the 19th century's religious certainties; and the 20th century's superstars, including Charlie Chaplin and Princess Diana.

CNN Special Investigations Unit is an American investigative documentary program on CNN weekends. Expanding upon CNN Presents, SIU focuses on each episode being an in depth investigative report about news stories being covered, commonly featuring a number of interviews with experts on the issue and people who have witnessed the story taking place. The reports are commonly long-form, allowing for the network to cover more information and perspectives than would be available during a 5-minute report on another CNN program, such as CNN Newsroom. Compared to Presents, the show has taken a slightly larger point of the reporting being done by CNN reporters, the first commercials promoting the program largely showing pictures of anchors and reporters on locations, asking questions to people on the locations. In addition, the look and feel of the show has changed somewhat drastically, adding more emphasis on the graphics used to present the program itself, in addition to the stories being covered. In addition, presentations on SIU are shorter in length than on Presents, which is now used as a special event for larger special reports that take place on a long-term basis. Since the program's introduction, the network has slowly shifted towards relabeling past Presents presentations into SIU formatted ones, changing the graphics to reflect the new general label given to long-form reporting done by the network.
