BBC World Service, The Documentary Podcast, Iraq: Generation Invasion

I recommend this programme. It shows the (literal) impact of the invasion on different sectors of Iraq society and the damage caused. Lest anyone forgets …

“Twenty years after the US-led invasion, four young Iraqis recall life under foreign occupation and share their hopes and fears for the future. Shedding a light on post-Saddam Iraq are: 26-year-old Dima who rebelled against religious extremists in her native Basra and has rediscovered a love of singing; Bassam, an enthusiastic environmentalist helping re-green the city of Mosul; Ahmed, a Kurdish graduate struggling to make ends meet in a local barber shop; and Baraa, a female publisher, whose message to the world is “Iraqis need a second chance.””
