Manchester: The Night of the Bomb

Remembering the victims on the first anniversary of the Manchester attack

It’s one year today since a bomb ripped through the Manchester Arena as young music fans were leaving an Ariana Grande concert.

This powerful documentary tells the story of that fateful night in forensic detail.

From the suicide bomber’s upbringing to the agonising delays that hampered the emergency services’ response, this film chronicles the attack that claimed 22 lives and injured more than 100 people, hearing from victims, police officers and MI5 officials.

They all have vivid tales to tell, yet none is as visceral as the story of a mother whose sink became blocked with the blood and flesh she washed from her daughter’s hair.
