Generation Jihad: Islam in the UK

Part 1
Peter Taylor hears from extremists convicted under Britain's newest anti-terror laws.

Part 2
How young, radicalised Muslims plotted major attacks in Europe and America.

Part 3
The battle for young Muslims' hearts has begun, but the policy risks alienating many.

In Generation Jihad, Peter Taylor investigates the terrorist threat from young Muslim extremists radicalised on the Internet. Following the attempt to bomb an airliner over Detroit on Christmas Day, this landmark series looks at the angry young men of Generation Jihad who have turned their backs on the country where they were born. In the first episode, Peter hears from those convicted under Britain’s newest anti-terror laws and investigates how some of the most notorious terrorists came to be radicalised. He finds a generation that has shed the moderate Islam their parents brought to this country, and instead have adopted a faith that they believe compels them to stand apart from Britain and its values.
