Kidnap & Rescue

Image 1 / 10

'Kidnap & Rescue' tells the story of Roy Hallums, an American food contractor in Iraq, revealing the violent world of the kidnap gangs who wreak terror across the war-torn country. Taken from his Baghdad office in November 2004, Roy spent 10 months blindfolded and bound in a subterranean cellar. He faced beatings, extreme psychological abuse and even a mock execution. But he never gave up hope. Not only was his family campaigning very publicly for his release, but they set up an organisation called 'The Hostage Working Group' which led to a highly sophisticated investigation to find him. 'Kidnap & Rescue' shows how this unique investigation endeavoured to find, and ultimately, rescue Roy Hallums.
