Saisons & épisodes Les résumés de tous les épisodes de Suez A Very British Crisis

S01E01 Betrayal 16/10/2006 The Suez Canal in Egypt was a symbol of western dominance. France and Britain were the major shareholders in the company that ran the canal and British troops occupied its banks. When Gamal Abdul Nasser came to power in 1954, his main objective was to remove the British from Egypt. The British Prime Minister, Anthony Eden, did not understand that the world had changed.
S01E02 Conspiracy 16/10/2006 When Nasser seized control of the Suez Canal, Anthony Eden was appalled. Eden saw Nasser as a dictator whose claim to represent all Arabs was a direct threat to British interests in the Middle East. Eden was determined to make Nasser reverse his decision by force if necessary. Programme two explains how Britain plotted with France and Israel to gain back control of the canal. The plan was for Israel to invade Egypt, its neighbor, allowing Britain and France to issue an ultimatum to each side to stop fighting or they would intervene to "save" the canal.
S01E03 War 16/10/2006 In the final episode, Anthony Eden takes the country to war in Suez. The invasion took place as planned. But Eden had not informed the Americans. When they found out, they were concerned about wider relations with the Arab world and refused to back the operation. Desperately short of funds and without financial support from the Americans, the British were forced to pull out of Suez by December 1956.
