Excellent and informative.
28 June 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Contrary to what the other reviewer wrote, this documentary actually covers the experience of the hostages in great detail. The Discovery Times Channel aired this 4 part documentary over two nights. I believe the previous reviewer only saw the second night, which dealt a lot with the failed rescue operation.

26 years later, it is great to finally have a documentary that fully details the events of those dark days.

We hear the honest thoughts of members of the Carter administration, long since retired from politics and able to speak freely. Some retired members of Delta Force are also finally able to speak freely about not only the details of the operation, but their own personal feelings. More importantly, we hear the honest voices of the hostages themselves all these years later. What's frightening, but fascinating, though is to hear the hostage takers speaking very matter-of-factly about their actions and still they see absolutely nothing wrong with holding innocent people tied up for 444 days.
