Why has there been no public investigation into the London explosions of 7th July 2005? This investigative documentary uncovers evidence that points to a high-level cover-up & asks why the media are reporting the four suspects as 'suicide bombers' when there is little or no evidence in the public domain that they were. Narrated by ex-MI5 officer David Shayler, this 40 minute film cuts through leaks and spin to explain why the official government story of the four lone suicide bombers just does not add up.
Ex-Counter Intelligence Officer David Shayler introduces a Bristol made documentary which challenges the official story of the London bombings.
Despite the failures of police and MI5 the government has still not accepted the need for a public inquiry. Released to mark the first anniversary of the 7/7 attacks Mind the Gap presents new evidence that contradicts the government's version of events.
David Shayler's job in MI5 was protecting the British public from terrorist attack. He has studied the events of 7/7 thoroughly and concluded that the official account of four lone suicide bombers just does not add up.
Highlighting little-known facts from last year's attacks he gives the audience a briefing, much like one he would have given to the Prime Minister of the day.
Why are there so many gaps in the official story? A vast amount of unsubstantiated stories have been published by the press, why the confusion? Were the men duped? Were they really suicide bombers? Why have no CCTV images of the suspected bombers on the tube network that day been released? What are the parallels with the 9/11 attacks?
These and many more questions challenging the official version of events are explored. As survivors, politicians and religious leaders are again calling for a public inquiry into the attacks, this film shows why such an inquiry is necessary.
