THE BOARD­ING SCHOOL BOMBER

ABC2, 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

How does a mid­dle- class school­boy from a quiet sub­urb in the city of Bris­tol in the UK turn into a sui­cide bomber? This doc­u­men­tary mixes in­ter­views and CCTV footage with reen­act­ments of real life events to look into the story of An­drew Ibrahim, who is cur­rently serv­ing a life sen­tence for plan­ning an at­tack on a Bris­tol shop­ping cen­tre. Mov­ing in­ter­views with his mother, mem­bers of the Mus­lim com­mu­nity and col­lege and school friends give a fas­ci­nat­ing and at times up­set­ting in­sight into how this bright teenager turned into a would- be killer.
