Britse tv-serie over leven van Saddam

Britse tv-serie over leven van Saddam Rotterdam, 29 juli. Op BBC 2 begint morgen de vierdelige serie House of Saddam, over de opkomst en ondergang van dictator Saddam Hussein. Het verhaal begint in 1979, op het moment dat Saddams familie besluit dat president al-Bakr plaats moet maken voor Saddam. De makers van de serie, Alex Holmes en Stephen Butchard, baseerden hun verhaal op talloze interviews met mensen die deel uitmaakten van het regime en met personeel in de paleizen. De rol van Saddam Hussein (op de ‘troon’) wordt gespeeld door Igal Naor. Foto BBC. The cast of "House of Saddam" is seen in an undated publicity photo. Pictured are (L to R) Daniel Lundh, Shivani Ghai, Shohreh Aghdasloo, Amr Waked, Philip Arditti, Amber Rose Revah, Agni Scott, Mounir Margoum. Seated is Igal Naor as Saddam Hussein. The Israeli actor playing Saddam Hussein in a new television series once narrowly escaped a missile fired by the late dictator's army. But for Igal Naor, taking the lead role in "House of Saddam", the BBC/HBO dramatisation of Saddam's 24-year rule airing in Britain from Wednesday, it was not about revenge. MANDATORY CREDIT.
