Telling the story of Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein, Secret Iraq aims to uncover real stories from those embroiled in the complexities of the current conflict. It’s a situation that has spawned more questions than answers and seemingly more strife than resolution.
Series producer Sam Collyns has taken cameras to the hotspots of the region and documented for the first time startling testimony from Iraqi insurgents as well as from others in the midst of the melee – from soldiers on the ground to politicians behind the scenes.
Partners: Quicksilver Media (Oxford) for BBC2; distributed through Electric Sky (Brighton)
Length: 2 x 60-minutes
Aired: September/October 2010
Rights available: Worldwide rights available excluding UK, Ireland and Iraq
