Episode 3: London Under Seige

Summary

The documentary series turns attention to events in London in April, 1980, when six armed men from Iran seized control of the capital's Iranian embassy. Holding 26 people at gunpoint, the terrorists demanded the immediate release of political prisoners incarcerated in their homeland, and safe passage from the UK. If these demands were not met, the men claimed they would shoot all 26 of their hostages. Forty years later, first-hand accounts from some of the hostages, interviews with John Dellow of the Metropolitan Police and Gen Michael Rose of the SAS, and recorded footage from the incident are all brought together to provide an insight into the six-day ordeal that ended in a dramatic rescue operation
