Marathon: The Patriots Day Bombing


Monday 6 February, 7.30pm Channel 010

Directed by the Emmy®-nominated team of Ricki Stern and Annie Sundberg, and produced in association with The Boston Globe, this HBO feature documentary revisits the April 15, 2013 bombings at the Boston Marathon through the prism of individuals whose lives were forever changed by the attacks. The film covers the events of Marathon Day 2013, through the sentencing of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev two years later and concludes on Marathon Day 2016. Built on a wealth of exclusive footage from this three-year period – much of it never seen before – the film features surveillance footage, home movies and photos, as well as on-going, behind-the-scenes material from several survivors and their families gathered by reporters and photographers from The Boston Globe, which won a Pulitzer Prize for its coverage of the bombing. Also included are news clips and interviews with first responders, FBI investigators, government officials and law-enforcement officers. In the wake of a heinous act of terrorism, we witness a newlywed couple, a mother and daughter, and two brothers – all gravely injured by the blast – facing the enormous challenges of physical and emotional recovery as they and their families strive to reclaim their lives and community.
