Since the events of September 11, the word "terrorism" has acquired a new political dynamic. Wars are waged and many lives have been lost in the name of combatting "terror" and strict legislation has been passed to prevent acts of "terrorism". Definitions of these words are highly subjective and what constitutes a "terrorist" depends on where you live and what you believe in. In this six-part series, author and journalist Phil Rees travels to South Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas to explore the debate surrounding the meaning of the word "terrorism".
In this episode, Phil Rees concludes that before the 'war on terror' can have its Armistice Day, the West will have to negotiate with those it considers terrorists.
