“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.
