Series: Battle for the Gulf (9)

6 x 50-minute and 3 x 50-minute documentary series

A unique series tracing the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and the 1991 Gulf War, but told from the Arab perspective. Participants and decision-makers recount previously untold stories and break with the mythologising Western accounts that relegate the Arabs to spectators in their own history. The war was portrayed as a victory for the New World Order that established the US as the world’s only super power; yet the reality is far less clear cut, as this series reveals.

These films can be bought individually or as a series.
