Winner, 2009 BAFTA for Current Affairs

Produced and directed by Dan Reed, Terror in Mumbai pieces together, with exclusive new footage, evidence and interviews, what happened last November when ten gunmen from Lashkar-e-Toiba, the "Army of the Righteous", murdered 170 people in Mumbai

UK Reviews

"A terrifying, moving, human story...sometimes a terrible news event is so hard to get your head around, the only way to get some kind of grip on it is to zoom in on the detail. Terror in Mumbai did this to extraordinary effect"
- The Guardian

"Chilling, extraordinary"
- The Times

"Extraordinarily powerful"
- The Sunday Times

US Reviews

"There's not a moment in this stunning film - directed by Dan Reed, narrated by Mumbai born Fareed Zakaria that doesn't leave one rapt with wonder at its revelatory powers, and wanting more"
- The Wall Street Journal

"Uncommonly powerful…urgent, frightening, resonant and appalling -- and it is told mercilessly well.”
- The Washington Post

"A model of the genre, with a combination of clarity and breathless pace reminiscent …of a Paul Greengrass ‘Bourne’ movie"
- The New York Times
