The television station that brought the world Osama Bin Laden is about to hit the headlines again. As America gears up for war and the West prepares itself for a bombardment of images from the western media, Al-Jazeera is ready to stun the world. With their uncanny ability to get major exclusives, Al-Jazeera strikes fear into the hearts of western news media. Now - despite the huge amount of international media attention - the BBC has gained exclusive access to make an extraordinary and exciting film following their reporters into battle at the onset of the war with Iraq, reporting the war from an Arab perspective, including uncensored images of the deaths of American and British soldiers. What happened when the Americans bombed the Al Jazeera headquarters in Baghdad, killing one of their reporters? According to Al Jazeera, the Americans were well informed of the location of their headquarters - was the bombing an accident?
