Historian and presenter Michael Wood pieces together evidence of the systematic destruction by the Iraqi government of the Shia Marsh Arabs - whose way of life goes back 5,000 years.

SADDAM'S KILLING FIELDS claims that the Shia and Kurds in northern Iraq were encouraged by the West to rise up against Saddam's regime at the end of the Gulf War. In retaliation, more than 300,000 Shia are believed to have been killed, risking the ruin of an entire culture.
