Sir Thomas Stamford
An edited compilation of a series of five programmes, shown in 1995, which attempt to make sense of the events leading to the bloody collapse of the former
Yugoslavia. The programme draws on testimony from the region's leaders plus key decision-makers from all sides of the bloodiest conflict that Europe has seen since the Second World War.
The programme begins with Slobodan Milosevic 's visit to
Kosovo in 1991, when he first unleashed Serbian nationalism.
Also captured on camera is a dramatic meeting between
Yugoslavia's State Council and its army's top brass to decide whether to send troops into Croatia. Serbian ethnic cleansers give an account of the orders they received from President Milosevic, whose role in helping the United States impose the Dayton peace in Bosnia concludes the programme.
