    Very biased, Syrian School and hypernormalization both were far more balanced. Expected better from bbc. More facts less judgmental.

    This BBC documentary clearly describes the chilling and shocking saga of the Assad's family dictatorship and how it destroyed an entire country while killing over a million civilians. Truly heartbreaking and scary.The parallel description of Assad's glamorous wife is also intriguing. This documentary will give shivers down your spine and make you hate the world.
  • I watch the news of what is happening in the Middle East and despair. It was beyond my comprehension until I watched this three part series.

    The House of Assad documentary tells the story of the family. Mother, father, three sons and a daughter. We learn how an introverted London trained doctor, Bashar Assad, came to power in Syria and became a mass murderer and monster.

    The story has elements of Hamlet, King Lear and Macbeth. Now we need this documentary to be made into a 3 act play. A challenge that the Royal Shakespeare Company or National Theatre could do justice to.
