KUOW Presents

Diplomatic Jigsaw Part 1


Two riveting programs tell the story behind the global coalition that was convened in the wake of the September 11 attacks.

BBC Correspondent Ed Stourton talks to the major players who created unlikely alliances and made unexpected diplomatic concessions.
  • With Us or Against Us? - Covers the immediate period after 9/11, the story of the world’s recovery from shock and how the Bush administration prepared for action.
  • Keeping It Together - Considers the pressures the coalition was under and how it held together once U.S.-led military action got underway. Also reviews the doubts and fears of the Muslim world and how they were addressed.
  • The Diplomatic Jigsaw is part three of The BBC’s The Changing World, a special presentation of BBC World Service and PRI’s The World.
