A new documentary focusing on the death and destruction caused by Islamic extremists in London on 7th July 2005. The day begins at 7.15am, with four young men waiting for a train at Luton railway station. Within minutes they board a train bound for King’s Cross in the heart of the capital. Each one carries a rucksack packed with deadly explosives. Within two hours they have exploded their bombs, killing 56 people including themselves and injuring hundreds more.
This is the first episode in a series, but the web site gives no information about subsequent episodes, so I don't know what the aim of the series is or why 7/7 has been chosen as a subject.

A fairly standard restatement of the official narrative, but for the most part with different contributors from the usual suspects. Duncan Gardham of the Telegraph did most of the narration.

There was a high proportion of "reconstruction" to actual footage, reflected in the short "Archive" credits, as listed above.

The sparse web site for Circle Films is suggestive of a front for a certain kind of agency.

Given the length of the programme there were inevitably many omissions.

Interestingly they showed a tube map diagram on which the easternmost explosion was on a train travelling towards Kings Cross from Aldgate to Liverpool Street, contrary to the Official Narrative but in agreement with some of the early reports. [ The balaclava symbols on the trains to represent a terrorist were rather crude ]

The other point I thought was noteworthy was that the Coroner stated that at the first meeting he chaired it was actually minuted that they were dealing with 6 incidents, not 4.

The red balaclava was moving from Tower Hill towards Aldgate. There was also a station marker labeled 'Aldgate' which was actually pointing at Aldgate East station.

Series 1 - 3. King's Cross - Inferno on the Tube

3/5. Documentary using eyewitness testimony, archive footage and dramatic reconstructions to chart the events surrounding the fire at King's Cross London Underground station in November 1987, which led to the deaths of 31 people. The blaze was caused by a discarded match or cigarette setting light to a wooden escalator, but the inadequate infrastructure of the station meant that it quickly escalated into a fireball . Features interviews with survivor Daemonn Brody, transport officer Sharon O'Neill and journalist Lindsay Taylor.

I don't know if you can be bothered Muncher to clip this sequence but as for the train going from Aldgate to Liverpool Street there is an interview (I think it's with the helicopter doctor) describing arriving at Aldgate and walking down the track and seeing bodies before he gets to the train. I'd covered this anomaly on the website http://julyseventh.co.uk/7-7-liverpool- ... ranomalies

Doesn't make any sense that an explosion in the 2nd carriage and a train that apparently travelled some distance after the explosion would result in bodies in front of the train unless of course the train was going in the opposite direction!
