Under The Wire



Under The Wire


Thursday 5 December 8.30pm Channel 039

In February 2012, Sunday Times war correspondent Marie Colvin illegally crossed the border into Syria with her photographer, Paul Conroy. Ignoring the government's refusal to allow foreign journalists into the country, the two were among the first to attempt to uncover the story of civilians trapped in the besieged city of Homs. They found a ravaged war zone that only one of them would ultimately survive. Recounting their moment-by-moment journey into Homs, Under The Wire is a chilling tribute to the courageous bravery that led Colvin and Conroy to their final mission together. Their incredible story is also told in the film ‘A Private War’ starring Rosamund Pike, a Rialto Channel exclusive in 2020. Nominated for Best Documentary at the British Independent Film Awards.
