BBC - Boarding School Bomber, Drama-Documentary

A true story of a teenager's journey into extremism

Boarding School Bomber is a true story of how and why a public schoolboy became a would-be suicide bomber.

This compelling film, which was the debut BBC broadcast commission for Social Film Drama, received rave reviews as well as being named ‘Digital Choice’ in The Radio Times and ‘Pick of the Day’ in The Guardian.

Starring Adam Deacon (Adulthood, Kidulthood) this is an hour long documentary-drama telling the story of Isa Ibrahim, the middle-class public schoolboy from Bristol, who in 2009 was arrested and convicted for planning a terrorist act.
