The Long Road to Tripoli – Part 1

When Libyans rose up against the 42-year rule of Muammar Gaddafi, Libyan exiles living abroad were confronted by questions about who they are and what role they should play in their country’s struggle for freedom. For many, the answer was clear: they wanted to be a part of their country’s revolution.

The revolution would bring together Libyans from all walks of life. The Long Road to Tripoli is two one-hour documentaries that tell the story of a successful Libyan businessman who left the safety of London to go home, his son who had never before seen war and a property developer who became a revolutionary.

They joined a force of thousands of other ordinary Libyans fighting for freedom. Some had never before held a gun or come under fire. The road they all shared led to the same place and the same hope: to free Libyans from 42 years of Gaddafi’s tyranny.

It is a story of extraordinary courage by ordinary people.
