This documentary uses original footage as well as interviews with SAS agents, hostages and negotiators to take a look at the 1980 Iranian hostage crisis. When these events originally unfolded, the intense drama unfolded on television, culminating in an SAS storming of the building resulting in one of the most courageous and successful rescue operations of all time.
