S01E01 State of Denial 00/00/0000 State of Denial is the story of the fall of the Gaddafi regime as told by the insiders, defectors and military advisors who helped to bring it about. Written and directed by Anne Reevell of Moonbeam Films, the film offers a revealing behind-the-scenes account of a revolution, a slice of history in which people took back power. "The disintegration of the Gaddafi regime in Libya surprised and confused the world - not because it happened in the first place, but because Gaddafi's government remained convinced it could prevail - despite defections, NATO airstrikes and a popular mass uprising," says Reevell. As the rebels continue to advance towards Tripoli, the Libyan authorities there are in a state of denial, convinced they can still talk to the British government, denouncing the foreign media, burning the homes of Libyan exiles and organising anti-NATO demonstrations in London. The message they relay says there is 'no compromise on leadership,' but do they mean it or are hairline fractures beginning to emerge? Using the oral diary of a Tripoli-based insider, as well as interviews with the UK prime minister's senior advisor on Libya and leading figures in Benghazi and Tripoli, State of Denial explores the demise of Gaddafi's powerbase and charts the twists and turns of a regime in denial.
S01E02 The Long Road to Tripoli: part one 00/00/0000 The first episode of The Long Road to Tripoli begins in springtime in London, where for weeks the news has been dominated by the political awakenings in Tunisia, Egypt and then Libya. For 30-year-old Libyan exile Ibrahim El Mayat springtime has been given a new meaning and a new challenge: to return home. "For me, growing up in the UK, I was always aware of my identity as a Libyan and an Englishman, but I didn't live there so I didn't feel the reality of growing up in Libya in the really difficult times," Ibrahim says. "While I was enjoying a good life, my family in Libya had to queue for clothes, they had rations for food, they had absolutely no luxuries. They were really trapped; they were under siege in the country." When the Libyan uprising began in February, Ibrahim and hundreds of other Libyans living in the UK began working together to send aid to those affected by the fighting. But for Ibrahim, sending aid from the comfort of the UK was not enough - he wanted to return to Libya. Ibrahim's father, Abduladim, fled to London from Libya 30 years ago. During the 1980s, Gaddafi pursued Abduladim and others like him, sending death squads to assassinate Libyans living in London. Abduladim managed to escape with his life, but was left injured and permanently scarred. "We lived in Tripoli. Gaddafi, he took my house, he took it by force. He took everything from us," Abduladim explains. Father and son are motivated by a desire to return to Tripoli to take part in their country's revolution. "I would be very happy if I died there fighting for my country. If we successfully liberate Tripoli it will be fantastic. I hope I can get back. I want to go back to my house," Abduladim says. This film follows Ibrahim and his family as they decide to send a convoy of vehicles to supply and equip a group of rebels based in the Western Mountains of Libya. With the help of a London-based property developer, they plan
S01E03 The Long Road to Tripoli: part two 00/00/0000 The second film follows Ibrahim, his father, Abduladim, and fighters from the UK and Libya as they take on Gaddafi's forces in a battle for the strategic town of Kikla in the Western Mountains. As they meet prominent Libyans in Tunisia who are planning for a post-Gaddafi Libya, the news comes in that the revolution has started in Tripoli. Within days, Gaddafi's compound is overrun. As they make it all the way to the newly-liberated Tripoli, Ibrahim and Abduladim explore Gaddafi's compound, which is near to their former family home, but when they return to their house they discover that it has been badly damaged during the fight for Tripoli.
