BBC Radio 4: Jihad UK


Following the conviction of a group of British-born Muslims for a massive conspiracy to murder, journalist Amardeep Bassey traces the evolution of the jihadi network in Britain.

From a movement originally concerned with nationalist conflicts abroad, to one inspired by the ideology of Osama bin Laden, it's a story that begins in the UK nearly 15 years ago. Amardeep goes beyond the familiar tale of radical preachers like Abu Hamza and Omar Bakri Mohammed and reveals the key role played by Kashmiri militant groups in training British Muslims to carry out al Qaeda inspired attacks.

This programme was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on September 8 2008 at 2002BST.
