What do people think about this 4 part drama to be shown on Sunday channel 4 about British men and women going to Syria to become Jihads!!! Personally I don't think it should have been allowed as giving IS publicity and attention which I think they crave...I don't really want to know how it works!!

Its best to know, keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Unfortunately the program is probably going to be a mixture of truth and propaganda and may be seen as such.

Everybody's, the media aren't particularly fussy in this country.

In view of today's horrific events in Barcelona I don't think this will be aired. I certainly won't be watching , I don't want to know or care how these b,s get their evil recruits. Still say it shouldn't be allowed to be on , think it's wrong!!!

The sad thing is they will get some propaganda value from a programme like this, portraying those going as misled brainwashed innocents that didn't properly understand what they were getting into.

Exactly Casper, why give them any publicity at all whether good or bad. They act like they are still in dark ages so don't give them any light at all, hate them!!! Oh Rude, pointless complaining to channel 4 ,they are known for their controversial programmes and it is only my opinion sure many more will want this garbage aired!! Thanks Dilly for your support but you know me always up for a debate,ha...

Well said, Cools. The media are biased, they create controversial programmes out of biased views. They wittingly intend to cause reaction and who produces and directs these programmes ? I bet in most cases, they don't have a name like Brown, Smith , Jones, McTavish or Murphy.

Ha ! Just had a look at who the director is. Peter Kosminsky, same chap who directed Wolf Hall. Well apparently he has done meticulous research on this The State.
Didn't like Wolf Hall anyway, one of the worst character representations based on his interpretations of individuals. Speaks for itself.

Once again I have been edited. Not in the wiki spirit ? . Did anyone else who read my post before it was edited find it Not in the wiki spirit. I advised another user not to reply to what I seen as a deliberate taunt. This however was not removed.

I saw it, and in my opinion, the antagonist knew what they were doing on a personal level towards another member and you told the challenged person not to respond. Nothing wrong with that.

Thanks Granny but it always seems to me that the scales will always balance in her favour. I now have to think long and hard if I want to remain on a site that has shown a favouring towards this person for as long as I can remember.
