The Trial of Saddam Hussein
A Major Documentary for PBS
The definitive documentary about what really happened at the former dictator’s trial. The Trial of Saddam Hussein showed how the trial of Saddam tested Iraq’s new government and justice system.
Assassinations of a judge and two defense attorneys, testimony from the victims of the regime’s dictatorial rule, and court room outbursts by the defendants who question the court’s legitimacy are the public ingredients.
Behind the scenes another drama unfolded...
With access to members of both the prosecution, defense and court, many of whom speak in public for the first time,
Great Projects provides the first comprehensive look at The Trial and its significance for the future of the new Iraqi nation. It was broadcast in the U. S. as part of PBS’s prestigious “America at a Crossroads” initiative in October 2008.
