9/11 was a Tuesday - no Scarlet listed for that day. After 2001 they would obviously know the date so would not pre-schedule it to appear.

I think you may have confused the date and / or reason. I recall Scarlet having the episode changed or postponed because of something in the news but it wasn't 9/11.
Whenever a shooting incident occurs panic hits the broadcasters who cancel anything to do with guns or violence.
Not sure if it was Hungerford or a later shooting where a series entitled "The Marksman" got postponed and had its title changed before broadcast and it was never restored to the original one.

I wonder how many years it will be until The Towering Inferno appears again on anything except Sky Movies
