Docu-Drama discussion programme from the award winning Panorama series. Broadcast on Sunday May 16 2004 at 10.15pm
Hers how the BBC describe it:
"This film is a mock exercise of what might happen in London if there was a terror attack now. In a unique fusion of drama, detailed research and expert discussion Panorama puts Britain's emergency plans to the test.
Set in the future - but only just - the city of London is thrown into chaos by a series of terrorist attacks. The fictional day of terror unfolds through the immediacy of rolling news bringing the catastrophic attack into our living rooms.
As events unfold, Panorama and a team of specialists reveal gaps in our preparations. The eight-strong team includes people with first hand knowledge of intelligence, emergency planning, police, fire, government and media management.
Together they take us 'behind closed doors' to reveal to what extent the emergency plans and resources in place today could cope if London was attacked.
For more than two years, senior police and intelligence officials and senior cabinet members have been warning that terrorists will attack the UK and the likely target is London."
For those who may be unaware, as this is a fictional scenario where three London tube trains and a lorry are targeted by terrorists with explosives,it is interesting to note that on 7 July 2005 these were the targets chosen by terrorists with the only differnce being a bus was bombed and not a chlorine tanker. More importantly Peter Power of Visor consultants who took part in the Panorama programme, was, on the morning of 7/7 running 'an exercise' at the exact tube stations at the exact same time they were attacked.
