Dispatches: Escape From the Taliban

Quicksilver Media for Channel 4

Saturday 27th November

Editor: Dave Richards

First-hand footage of the Taliban capture of Kabul and the subsequent flight of refugees shot by a team of local journalists working for Dispatches filming in the Afghan capital. In the following days, they follow some of the terrified Afghans trying to escape to a new life abroad. Among them is Zoya Faizi, a noted female rights activist. They also gather striking footage of Anas Haqqani, one of the senior figures of the Al Qaeda-backed Haqqani network, visiting Bagram prison, where, until recently, he was held while facing a death sentence.
