Terrorism: A World in Shadows from Image Entertainment examines the world-wide phenomenon of terrorism that affects our daily lives and our very survival. From the Holocaust to 9/11 international terrorism has been brought closer to home, yet it remains shrouded in mystery. Terrorist organizations carry out seemingly desperate, random acts with no limits on the possible destruction. This series, though, removes some of the mystery by uncovering the causes and effects of terrorism throughout history. It goes deep into the personalities, ideologies and techniques behind this dark and hidden threat that each of us confronts almost every day. The series also explores the most powerful weapon of terrorism - the extreme secrecy that maintains fear while terrorist acts are being planned. The series includes the major terrorism activities of the past 30 years - Northern Ireland, Palestine, the Achille Lauro cruise ship hijacking and the murder of Israeli Olympic athletes at the 1972 Munich games.
