Sky has lined up the three-part series 7/7: Britain’s Day of Terror (w.t.) for Sky Documentaries and NOW in 2025 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the bombings.
The Sky original series promises the definitive account of the events in London on July 7, 2005, when 52 people were killed and more than 700 injured as part of an Al-Qaeda campaign. It features unprecedented access to those closest to the story, many of whom have never spoken before.
Blast Films, a Sky Studios company, is producing. NBCUniversal Global Distribution will handle international sales of the series on behalf of Sky Studios.
Danny Horan, chief creative officer of Blast Films, said: “Much has been documented about the 7/7 London bombings, but little has been said about the road to 7/7 from those connected to the history and events of the day. Our series will offer a complete picture of how Britain became a significant target for Al-Qaeda, as well as a comprehensive look at the terror of the day and the subsequent investigation.”
Poppy Dixon, director of documentaries and factual at Sky UK, said: “The horrific 7/7 bombings shook the country and marked a pivotal moment in British history. Like 9/11, the attacks are ingrained into our collective memory, and I commend Blast Films’ authoritative, balanced and sensitive exploration of this subject.”
