Terror in the Desert w/t (1 x 60′) – Drama documentary special which details for the first time the real and full story behind the terrorist attack on the In Amenas gas facility in Algeria.
It tells the story of the terrorist siege which transfixed the world, through compelling first person interviews with hostage survivors and their families, many speaking on camera for the first time, and dramatic reconstruction of key events during the tense four days which were punctuated with gun battles and dramatic tales of escape and human bravery in the most desperate of conditions.
The film forensically examines the audacious storming of the gas plant which left a death toll of 37 foreign hostages from Britain, USA, France, Japan and Norway and the international response to the rapidly unfolding events.
