Summary

This video tells the extraordinary story of the 1976 hijacking of a plane by Palestinians in alliance with German Marxist revolutionaries. The historic crisis ends with a dramatic raid on Entebbe airport to rescue the hostages from Idi Amin's Uganda. The programme interviews some of the hostages as well as former members of the terrorist groups and the Israeli commandos who took part in the daring rescue mission. The resolution of the crisis is a legendary point of reference for any national government responding to terrorism to this day.--Cf. BBC Two website.
