Behind the Fence
Workers construct the security fence
The fence has been dubbed a "wall of apartheid"
Behind the Fence was broadcast on BBC Two on Sunday, 25 May, 2003 at 1915 BST.



In June 2002 Israel began construction of a massive security fence in the area of the Green Line, the unofficial border where Israel meets the occupied West Bank.

The Israeli Government said the fence was designed to prevent Palestinian "terrorists" from entering Israel.

Not so, said the Palestinians who have denounced the fence as a "wall of apartheid" and accused Israel of sinister motives, saying it is reinforcing its occupation under the cover of security.

Correspondent follows the story of the controversial fence from the outset of construction, through the eyes of Israelis and Palestinians who are directly affected.

The film unfolds while the world is preoccupied by the war on Iraq and barely shows a flicker of recognition or interest in the fence, despite its huge implications.
