    When US Special Forces shot and killed Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan in 2011 every step of the operation was kept secret from Pakistan, in name one of the US's closest allies.


Filmed on the ground in Pakistan and Afghanistan, this enthralling two-part documentary series tells the hidden story of how for a decade Pakistan deceived America and the West, giving secret support to the Taliban - and then was found out.


It is an accusation denied by Pakistan's military establishment to this day (despite the subsequent leaking of a damning secret NATO report) but a charge supported by the serving Taliban commanders whom Secret Pakistan secured unique access to, as well as by the top US and UK intelligence figures, and Western diplomats interviewed for the series.
