Show of the week: Terror in Mumbai

This documentary provides a detailed view of the November 2008 terrorist attacks in India—“the most significant since 9/11,” according to Fareed Zakaria of CNN.

The November 2008 terrorist attacks that killed 179 people in Mumbai were “the most significant since 9/11,” CNN’s Fareed Zakaria asserts in this dramatic documentary. Using actual audio from the cell phone calls made by the 10 men who threw India’s largest city into chaos—and testimony from the only one who survived—it provides a detailed view of the attacks, as seen by both the terrorists and their victims. The footage is grim, and the conversations between the attackers and their Pakistani controllers are appallingly matter-of-fact. Zakaria’s conclusion is inescapable: “The Mumbai attacks should worry us all.” Thursday, Nov. 19, at 8 p.m., HBO
