This revealing and disturbing 2005 documentary looks into the history of modern interrogation methods and how they have developed into the techniques now used by governments around the world. The BBC filmed the documentary in over 7 countries with candid interviews from state torturers and interrogators.
Much of the history of torture and interrogation has shaped present day techniques, especially in the United States where these methods have now become ever-present in the war on terror. Whether it is water-boarding, sexual humiliation or the use of dogs, this cruelty continues to connect the modern day to Nazi Germany and is a huge political issue in today’s climate.
This documentary reveals whether these inhumane techniques are really working and if so, at what cost.
