Episode notes

Shamima Begum is no longer British. Her case is heard in the Supreme Court - but will she ever be judged fairly?

She’s stuck in a Syrian camp, nowhere to go. Not into freedom in Syria, or back home to go on trial, and certainly not to Bangladesh.

She says she’s being singled out because of the intense media attention she’s received but we look at other cases like hers to see just how common losing your British citizenship is.

In this final episode, ITV’s Global Security Editor Rohit Kachroo looks at the role of the media and of the public in shaping Shamima’s story.

Shamima Begum: The Blame Game is written and presented by Rohit Kachroo, produced by Dawn Kelly, Tam Hussein, Dan Howells, Katie Bilboa and Will Tullis. The executive producer is Matt Williams.
