The Jihadis Next Door

Published on 2nd February 2017 by

Film-maker Jamie Roberts spent two years following people who are spreading radical islamist ideas on the streets of the UK, including a man named Abu Ramaysah who went on to become one of the most wanted men in the world.

By the time this documentary was aired in 2016 Ramaysah was believed to be one of the most infamous members of ISIS in Syria. The film explores his transformation from a normal boy raised in a moderate British muslim family to a man willing to act as an executioner in the Islamic state.

For further exploration into the subject of radicalised British muslims check out the documentaries My Brother the Islamist and My Brother the Terrorist by Robb Leech, and My Hometown Fanatics by Stacey Dooley.
