While today his long reign is tottering and blood is being shed, this documentary examines how the West has been dealing with Muammar Gaddafi in a world of realpolitik, petrol and terrorism. It questions how the man who was public enemy number one during the '80s, one of the main promoters of international terrorism, become 'respectable', if only for a while. It also asks how one of the world's most brutal dictators, a pariah, placed under embargo by the UN in 1992 after bomb attacks on UTA's and Lockerbie's DC10, came back to rub shoulders with European and American heads of state and leaders in Tripoli, Paris and New York.
