Enemy Within

Episodic Information

Enemy Within is a two-part documentary series that travels to the front line of the war in Afghanistan. From Kabul to Ghazni, we obtain rare access into Taliban badlands, and understand why the Taliban are gaining control of more territory, 18 years on since America invaded the country. On this journey, we embed with the Afghanistan Army on an operation against the Taliban and investigate why they are fast losing soldiers to conflict and attrition as we film their training grounds. We also meet brave journalists and artistes who continue to fight for peace. Along the way, we speak to key stakeholders like former President Hamid Karzai who unveils his solution for a democratic, peaceful Afghanistan. But is this too little, too late, for a country that has failed to protect thousands of lives lost in a conflict that continues to get worse with every passing day?
