Feb 5, 2019

The feature documentary film Under the Wire, based on the book of the same name by Paul Conroy, will be shown on BBC Four on Monday 11th February at 10pm.

The film was theatrically released in the UK on 7th September 2018.

In 2012, two journalists entered war-ravaged Syria. One of them was celebrated Sunday Times war correspondent, Marie Colvin. The other was photographer Paul Conroy. Their aim was to cover the plight of Syrian civilians trapped in Homs, a city under siege and relentless military attack from the Syrian army. Only one of them returned.


Under the Wire tells the incredible story of Paul and Marie’s fateful mission –and Paul’s epic battle to escape the city, to tell the world of his fallen colleague and the plight of the people of Homs. It’s a film about real journalism: about war, and an extraordinary commitment to telling the truth, whatever the cost.

The film is directed by Chris Martin and produced by Arrow Media.
