BBC2 2:00am Sat 27 Oct
Season 1 Episode 1 of 3
Documentary about the al-Assad family, which has ruled Syria since 1971 and established an authoritarian government in the country under the control of the Ba'ath Party. Current Syrian president Bashar al-Assad trained to be an eye doctor at St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London, and his wife Asma was born in Britain to a Syrian family. Told through rarely-seen footage and testimony of those who knew and worked with them, the series explores how the couple, who at first were seen as a modernising force, ended up running a regime accused of war crimes

The former eye doctor is now president and his British-born wife Asma is First Lady, but they face problems on all sides and their regime is accused of killing a political enemy. Asma's in-laws don't like the idea of her being First Lady and want to keep her out of the limelight, an angry US president names Syria as part of the Axis of Evil and the United Nations issue resolutions that Bashar's family want him to ignore. The Assads soon find themselves at the centre of a murder investigation, as one of their political enemies is blown up in a car bombing

As a glamorous profile of Asma appears in Vogue magazine, the Arab Spring protests reach Syria. Bashar must decide whether to concede to their demands for greater freedom or follow in his father Hafez's famously hardline steps. What unfolds shocks the world in its brutality, but as the chaos of civil war rages, the so-called Islamic State emerges and it looks like Bashar is on the brink of losing the Assad dynasty's control of Syria.
