Return to Baghdad


Fascinating documentary special Return to Baghdad follows former Middle East correspondent Leena Reikko as she leaves her rustic home, deep in the Finnish countryside, to visit an old friend – who eventually became the President of Iraq.


Having made the decision to return, her arrival is not without its shocking discoveries – friends have passed away and Baghdad is in ruins. But, there is peace in Kurdistan thanks to Jalal Talabani – a former Kurdish guerrilla leader – currently acting as the President.


This extraordinary 57-minute documentary offers truly unique access to Iraq’s President as well as the presidential palace, not to mention an insider’s view of a country seldom seen by outsiders.
