Discovery Channel and BBC have co-produced a special programme titled -- Behind The Terror: Understanding The Enemy.

The programme explores the evolution of modern terrorism from deep in the mountains of Afghanistan and far reaches of the Middle East to the streets of New York and Washington, DC. It also provides a global profile of terrorism and the people behind it.

Hosted by veteran US network news anchor Forrest Sawyer the programmes tries to analyse why the attacks were perpetrated, what motivates these terrorist organizations, what they hope to accomplish, how they can be stopped, and how this event has changed the world.

The two-hour special includes interviews with Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State-USA; Bill Richardson, former UN Ambassador (and the last US official to negotiate with the Taliban); William Sessions, former FBI director; David Ivry, Israel's Ambassador to the US, among others.
