Overview

Director Mike Beckham draws on the facts in the case of two 1974 bomb attacks in Birmingham that left twenty-one dead, and six innocent men wrongly convicted. When terrorists bomb two Birmingham pubs, the authorities race to catch the culprits responsible for killing twenty-one unsuspecting civilians. But were the men christened the "Birmingham Six" really the ones responsible for this horrific mass slaughter? In this film, Beckham follows the efforts of World in Action researchers Ian MacBride and Chris Mullin in proving that the "Birmingham Six" only admitted to the bombing under extreme duress, and that the five IRA agents were in fact responsible for the deadly attacks.
