BBC Documentary on 'Great British Islam'

'Great British Islam' Documentary shown on Wednesday 18 July 2012 on BBC1

This BBC documentary tells the little-known story of three English gentlemen who embraced Islam at a time when to be a Muslim was to be seen to be a traitor to your country. Through personal journeys of still surviving relatives, the programme looks at their achievements and how their legacy lives on today. Most people think that Islam came to the country during the 1960's when Muslims immigrated from their homelands. Nothing could be further from the truth. There were a number of English gentlemen who embraced Islam, even when it was dangerous to do so. This programme gives an insight to a side of Islam we have never seen before, and to understand and realise how the real manifestation of Islam occurs in today's world.
