The Gulf War - BBC production from 1996


Five years after conflict in the Gulf and the liberation of Kuwait, the BBC broadcast a series of four programmes about the 1990/1991 conflict. Many of the key political and military figures are interviewed.

I remember it covering the post war assessments of the Scud attacks and the claims made at the time about Patriot engaging them, the fact that Saddam really did have chemical and biological weapons but was deterred by American nuclear weapons, the role of six US Navy carrier groups, cruise missiles using Iranian mountains to navigate, the role of depleted Uranium, and much else.
