Reporter Peter Taylor has spent five years since the events of September 11, 2001, researching Al-Qaeda in Britain and around the world. In this program, Taylor investigates the changing face of terrorism and its influence on the world. Taylor concludes that Iraq has become the dominant radicalising and recruiting force for many Muslims and that British support for US foreign policy has made Britain a prime target. With the so-called War on Terror far from won, and August's chaos at UK airports, is it time to consider a new approach? To try and end the violence, is it time to engage with Al Qaeda?
