The Conspiracy Files is a British documentary television series by the BBC which investigates various modern conspiracy theories, episodes are sporadic with the first coming in 2006 and a total of only eleven episodes so far (as of 2017). Each episode in the series is one hour long and broadcast on BBC two.

Oklahoma Bomb is the fourth episode in the series and was first broadcast in 2006, the episode examines various theories which have been put forward about the Oklahoma City Bombing incident in 1995 which saw a truck full of explosives driven into a federal government building. The bomb killed 168 people, injured 680 others and caused complete devastation to the building; it remains the most deadly act of domestic terrorism in United States history.

Gulf war veteran Timothy McVeigh and an accomplice named Terry Nichols were convicted of the crime, but some conspiracy theorists assert that others were involved but are being protected as part of a government cover up, with some going as far as saying that the government knew that the attack was going to happen or even had informants inside the conspiracy who were involved in encouraging the bombing. Leading FBI investigators are interviewed on film, one of whom wants the investigation to be re-opened.
