360 Lecture: Margaret Gilmore

Who is the terrorist and how is he hunted?

A history of modern terrorism. Sometimes the truth is more incredible than spy fiction. Writer, analyst and award winning BBC TV Correspondent Margaret Gilmore investigates how the terrorist threat has changed and become more diverse since the cataclysmic 9/11 attacks, and how in parallel all our lives have been transformed. She looks at what's happening right now in places like the Middle East and at how that impacts on our security back home.

She investigates the most recent terrorist attacks, including Paris, London and Barcelona, and explains how big crowd events can be made safe. And she puts the terrorist threat into perspective, looking at the concept of risk, asking why do we often worry most, about the things that are likely to affect us least.
