UK broadcaster Channel 4 has picked up a documentary on a 2006 attempted British terrorist attack, produced by Raw TV.

The Plot to Bring Down Britain’s Planes (pictured) gives an inside look at one of the UK’s largest and most dangerous surveillance operations, which focused on a group of young British men from East London who had plans to blow up multiple airlines with explosives masked as soft drinks.

The 90-minute special originally aired on National Geographic Channel in 2011 as Liquid Bomb Plot, and was shot in both the UK and U.S. It includes interviews with members of Counter Terror Command, who for the first time have given interviews and forensic detail about the planned terror attack, members of the British government and, on the U.S. side, Michael Chertoff, former U.S. Homeland Security secretary and General Michael Hayden, ex-CIA head.

“This documentary is a comprehensive and riveting account of a race-against-time investigation to stop a major terrorist attack on Britain, and reveals information that has never been seen before,” said Louise Norman, executive producer at Raw TV.

The doc was directed by Ben Chanan and exec produced by Louise Norman and Dimitri Doganis at Raw TV.
