Description:

Air an 5mh den t-Sultain 1972 fhuair ceannaircich a-steach gu seòmraichean nan lùth-chleasaichean aig Geamaichean Oilimpigeach Munich, a' marbhadh 11 Iosraeleach agus a' tòiseachadh strì eadar-nàiseanta a tha fhathast ag adhbharachadh connspaid 40 bliadhna as dèidh làimh. Tro agallamhan ùra, tha am prògram seo a' dol air ais chun an là uabhasach siud 's a' bruidhinn ri na daoine a bha ann air an là, na teaghlaichean, ùghdarrasan Oilimpigeach, luchd-fianais agus oifigearan bhon riaghaltas. Le bhith a' dol nas doimhne dhan sgeulachd, tha iad a' dol thairis air nithean a chaidh dìochuimhneachadh no fhàgail a-mach às an rannsachadh airson còrr air 40 bliadhna. Cuideachd, tha iad a' coimhead ri planaichean airson àite cuimhneachaidh a bhith aca aig raointean an stèideam mar chuimhneachan air na daoine a chaill am beatha. On September 5, 1972, Palestinian extremists infiltrated the athletes' dorms at the Munich Olympics, ultimately killing 11 Israeli athletes and setting off an international crisis that continues to raise controversy more than 40 years later. With new revelations and emotional interviews, this programme revisits that tragic day and incorporates new interviews with Israelis and Palestinians, surviving family members, eyewitnesses, Olympic authorities and government officials. It delves deeper into the tragedy, calling attention to details forgotten, ignored or obscured for more than 40 years, culminating with a look at plans for a memorial on the grounds of the Munich Olympic Stadium honouring those who lost their lives that tragic day.
