BBC Storyville 2016 Jim The James Foley Story

The story of how a young journalist came to be the first American to be executed by ISIS.

On 22 November 2012, photojournalist James ‘Jim’ Foley was kidnapped in Syria. Two years later, the infamous video of his public execution introduced much of the world to ISIS.

The film documents Jim’s life through intimate interviews with his family, friends and fellow journalists – while former hostages reveal never-before-heard details of his captivity with a chilling intimacy that reveals their untold story of perseverance.

Made with unparalleled access, including footage Foley shot himself, childhood friend and director Brian Oakes reveals Jim’s enormous courage during his captivity in this powerful chronicle of bravery, compassion and pain.
