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.
