Hamburg Cell, which premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival last week and debuts on British TV this week, looks at the Sept. 11 attacks from the hijackers' point of view. The film was praised as the most important British film at the festival — and criticized for humanizing the terrorists. Matt Cowan reports.
