The State, a drama about ISIS is on UK Channel 4

Recommended Posts

Guys,

Came across this show on an online site and set out to find out about it. Turns out this is a deeply researched drama about four fictional UK people (two males and two females), showing their ISIS experience, starting with what led them to abandon their lives, travel to Syria and join ISIS. Numerous former members were interviewed, tons of propaganda videos watched, and there is even a former ISIS technical advisor. Haven't seen it yet myself, but the program is apparently searingly realistic and has been endorsed by a heavy hitter academic whose field is radicalization.
