Called To Account



In early 2007, two leading barristers tested the evidence as to whether there would be sufficient grounds to indict the British Prime Minister for the crime of aggression against Iraq.

They examined a number of distinguished witnesses, including Members of Parliament, diplomats, United Nations officials, Intelligence experts and journalists.

Their revealing testimony was re-told by actors in The Tricycle Theatre's critically acclaimed tribunal play Called to Account - The Indictment of Anthony Charles Lynton Blair for the crime of aggression against Iraq - A Hearing.

To mark the resignation of Tony Blair, the original cast return in this specially adapted version for BBC Radio 4.
