Testing the Alarms
Produced by:
Since 9/11, many people have come to view the world through a filter of anxiety. Daily media reports of terror attacks or threats keep us all on heightened alert. But what is the source of that fear? A woman relives her brush with a possible suicide bomber on the London underground. An Iranian man in the Netherlands recalls how he was prepared to attach a bomb to his body to destroy the enemies of Islam. In "Testing the Alarms ", Fiona Stewart and Sassan Saghar Yaghmai offer two very different perspectives on fear and how it shades their lives. Joanna Bourke explores the history of the manipulation of fear. This documentary was produced by Michelle Ernsting of Radio Netherlands as a part of the Crossing Boundaries exchange.
