[edit] Information

First Aired on BBC Four Wed 1 Nov, 2006
Subject: Factual; History

A look at how Britain embarked on an unpopular war against an Arab nation, which critics claimed was based on a lie, and which brought disgrace to the Prime Minister of the day. Sounds familiar? This documentary examines the events of Suez 1956 through interviews with many of the Egyptian politicians, solidiers and civilians who were involved - some speaking on British television for the first time.

From dodgy intelligence dossiers to unexpected resistance from local people; from outraged public opinion to the collapse of a once popular prime minister's reputation, The Other Side of Suez is a timely reminder to politicians about the dangers of failing to learn the lessons of history.

Note: This is dedicated to our PM, the bastion of Democracy, Mr Anthony Blair
