Munich: Mossad’s Revenge
aka: Munich - The Real Assassins
One-Hour Special for Channel 4 / Discovery / La7 / Fremantle
1972, the Munich Olympics: eleven Israeli athletes were killed after being taken hostage by a little-known Palestinian group called Black September. It was an event that shocked the world, and the Israeli government wanted revenge. Mossad, Israel’s intelligence service, sent elite undercover agents across Europe and the Middle East to hunt down and kill the twelve people they believed were responsible for the Munich massacre. Steven Spielberg’s movie ‘Munich’ is based on a fictionalised account of these events. This film reveals for the first time the real story behind Israel’s campaign of revenge and how it spiralled out of control through the testimony of senior Mossad figures, undercover assassins, eyewitnesses and relatives of the victims.
